* Another summer holiday mix *

This week’s show is another laid-back summer holiday mix so in the absence of a studio guest you can sit back and absorb and steady stream of fresh sounds from Australia and Canada.  But we start out with a few more tracks from the perennially controversial Dayglo Abortions.  I’ve been reading Chris Walter’s super-detailed biography of the band.  It’s certainly an entertaining and sordid read.  The New Christs are up after the Dayglos as we feature some of their classic tracks and then two newies from the band’s highly anticipated and thus far well received record, ‘Incantations’.  Rob Younger on songwriting and singing duties is sounding as passionate and vitriolic as ever.

* 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.
