* Featuring Part 2 of the interview with Steve Kilbey of The Church and side-project Isidore *

‘Henry’s Dream’, the seventh full-length album by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, was released in North America exactly 20 yrs ago. Today on the show, I showcase the outstanding songwriting displayed on this LP, by playing two tracks, including the tender love-song ‘Straight To You’ and a third, ‘Blue Bird’, which is an outtake from the recording sessions.

And I also broadcast part two of my lastest chat with Steve Kilbey, bassist, singer, songwriter and member of the Church and numerous side-projects including Isidore. In this part of the interview, Steve reveals how he developed his musical vision during his youth in Canberra. He speaks about some of the technicalities of recording process and fills us in on the current status of The Church.  You can also enjoy three more tracks from the brand new release by Isidore, Life Somewhere Else.  Thanks for listening!

And tonight in Vancouver is the release-party for the lastest record by local faves Synthcake, at the Interurban Gallery. Two Synthcake tracks at the end of the show will wet your appetite for their hypnotic live show. MG

* Featuring an interview with Steve Kilbey of The Church and side-project Isidore *

Hello again music lovers!  Last weekend was Record Store Day and I loaded up on some vinyl at Scratch Records in Vancouver.  And thanks to Zack for pointing out a few Australian obscurities including a live EP by The Powdermonkeys called ‘Straight Until Morning.’ This blistering 1995 set by one of Melbourne’s most lauded rock bands, led by rock and roll true believer, the late Tim Hemensley, was recorded live in the JJJ Radio studios.

And what a treat it always is to interview Steve Kilbey for the show. I spoke with Steve over the phone this week about his side-project Isidore, with Jeffrey Cain.  The much-anticipated second release from Isidore called ‘Life Somewhere Else‘ is another nuanced hypnotic gem from this quality duo.  Today Steve talks about how he came to partner with the American Jeffrey Cain and he shares a remarkable story about his discovery of Bhakti Yoga.  I  feature four tracks today from the self-titled release from Isidore and two tracks from the new record.  More to come next week…
