Double J radio in Australia is a great source of quality new music. I ran across an article on their website recently called ‘9 Australian bands from the 2000s worth revisiting’ and we’re playing three of these acts a the top of show – The Sleepy Jackson, The Red Sun Band and my personal favourite who i remember seeing live in concert, Rocket Science, featuring theremin-wielding, wild front-man Roman Tucker!

Lots of great new music on the show, as always, including renowned Australian songwriter Darren Hanlon and a track from The Valery Trails, a unique band who have more recordings than live performances under their belts given that part of the band lives in Australian and the other in Houston, Texas.

* 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.
