* Featuring an interview with Adam Deane, Edmonton-based Aboriginal hip hop performer and music producer *

First up on the show are a handful of tracks from You Am I lead singer Tim Rogers, as we revisit the solo records ‘Ghosts Songs/Dirty Ron’ (2005) with his band The Temperance Union, and ‘The Luxury of Hysteria’ (2007).  I’m excited to track down the re-issues of the first three You Am I albums with bonus discs of b-sides and rarities which we’ll feature on the show in due course.

An extra-special interview today as Aboriginal hip hop artist and producer Adam Deane phones through from Edmonton, Alberta. Adam does some amazing work encouraging healthy lifestyles and well being for Aboriginal youth in his community through the Youth Expressions Workshop.   Tune in to hear Adam speak about his work and feature some of acts on his roster at Identity Records.   This is some impressive hip-hop with deeply positive lyrical messages.

Brightly are an electronic/folk trio from Melbourne who have a wonderful new single release called ‘Preflight Nerves’.  Check out the neat interactive Twitter video below!   And lots of great new music from British Columbia with a track from the band new SHED album and the CiTR radio debut of singer-songwriter Leonard Pennifold who treats us with two of his exuberant tracks from the album ‘Money Scars.’   Super-energetic all-female acts Hooves and Bushtit are playing together in Vancouver this weekend before Bushtit embarks on their first ever tour.  Enjoy the tunes!

* Featuring the classic ‘Weedseed’ 7″ from Woollongong stoner legends Tumbleweed *

Last weekend during the Khatsalano Fest in Kits, I strolled into Zulu Records and stumbled across a copy of the classic ‘Weedseed‘ 7″ by Tumbleweed!  What an amazing find.  It’s a beautiful 2 x orange vinyl with a photo pasted inside and cool artwork by Lenny.  Tumbleweed was the first live band I ever saw in Canberra and I always kept up with what they were doing on record.  It’s exciting to hear they have re-formed and are recording again as well.  I wonder if they’ll ever make it to North America…? Today on the show I couldn’t help but play the whole EP in it’s entirety, going right back to 1992.  For many listeners, this may be an introduction to a this classic ‘stoner’ band from Woollongong.  I’m sure you’ll be hungry for more!

Also on today’s show I feature a couple of Australian bands that are gaining attention from listeners in the US – Twerps and Royal Headache.  Both of these bands have been added to many college station playlists in the past few weeks.  Exciting stuff.  I play a track from the debut album by Australian indie rockers The Valery Trails and finish up with some local tracks by prominent folkies Geoff Berner and Buckman Coe.  MG
