Melbourne band The Fauves, who formed in 1988, are back soon with their 12th album. I can’t wait to hear more of the bands delightfully skewed melodies and the lyrical witticisms of Andy Cox. We kick off today’s show with singles from the band’s first three albums, including 90s hit ‘Self Abuser.’ Perth’s psychedelic masters Pond are back with a new single called ‘Tasmania’ which you can hear along with a selection of new Canadian tracks from Geoff Berner, Tough Age and more.

*Happy holidays!*

The Fauves are a hidden gem of Australian independent music.  Having played 1000s of shows since 1988 and mastering a potent blend of catchy alternative rock tunes with clever and at times cynical lyrics, the Fauves deserve far more accolades than their modest record sales have provided.  The ’15 Minutes To Rock’ documentary, following the band on the road from 1997 to 1999, is a wonderful snap-shot of an uncertain period in their career when they were preparing their major label followup and feeling the strain of touring.  You can hear a 5min segment of the film on the show!
