While Melbourne get’s international acclaim for being the ‘live music capital of the world’, Sydney musicians have had to struggle against the obstacles of closing venues and lock-out laws. But there are still countless top-notch bands and artists in Sydney and at the top of this week’s show we feature tracks from three of the artists on the roster of Sydney-based indie label Rice Is Nice, which was formed by Julia Wilson and Ben Shackleton in 2008. You can hear a track a piece from Straight Arrows, Summer Flake and Donny Benet.

* Interview with Ma Petite and To Stowaway LIVE in the CiTR studio *

Today is a fine example of why this radio show exists – two special musical guests who have come all the way across the oceans from Australia! And that’s especially true for Matthew of Melbourne-based project To Stowaway, who has recently embarked in the Pacific North West following a weeks-long journey by boat from Sydney. Matthew speaks of his experiences road-tripping through the USA and plays us a tune live in the studio that he wrote for his partner and that references the city of Portland, OR.

But first up we hear from Indiana Avent aka Ma Petite, another resident of Melbourne, who is about to kick-off the release of her debut album and first ever Canadian tour. Indiana previously spent a few years living in Vancouver. She recorded her record here in her much-loved second home, through an inspired and lengthy process involving multiple studios and contributions from friends.
