We have a real treat at the top of this weeks show – tracks from a 1986 set from pioneering Australian electronic act Severed Heads, which was recorded live-to-air in Canada, for the Brave New Waves show on CBC radio. Severed Heads, most known for the re-mix of their hit ‘The Dead Eyes Opened’, formed in 1979 and eventually had records released on Nettwerk Records in Canada, and toured with Skinny Puppy. It was during this tour that the live set was recorded and it wasn’t made available until it was released on bandcamp last year. You can hear three tracks from the set today. You can also hear more live tracks, this time from the new ‘Invisible Channel: Live Sessions From CJSW 90​​.​​9 FM.’

This week we feature tracks from three of the acts playing at this year’s festival – Apples, Big Fancy and Saltwater Hank. Also with our weekly mix of new Australian music, we also introduce listeners to a fascinating Vancouver band named Zakroczymska, a duo named for the street that the two musicians met in Warsaw.
