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.

Richard has since embarked on a solo career which has included collaborations with other quality musicians including the great Robert Pollard from Guided By Voices!  You can hear the track ‘Zeppelin Commander’ from the Davies/Pollard project Cosmos on the show.  You can also hear a track a piece from the split cassette between Melbourne bands No Sister and Bitumen, out on Vacant Valley records, and lots of quality new Canadian music, including new two-piece noise-rock outfit COPE, out of Lethbridge, AB.
