Playing tracks by
Nunchukka Superfly, Courtney Barnett, Jagwar Ma - 'The Throw' [AU], Pond, Magneticring and more.
Nunchukka Superfly is the long running side project of Blackie and Ray who are two thirds of the legendary Sydney-based punk band Hard-Ons. I recently re-discovered their sonically abrasive and wonderfully off-kilter 2006 record 'There Are No Accidents Just F*ckwits'. You can hear a few tracks from this classic release on the show. Next up are three experimental/ambient acts - White Poppy, Pan and Magneticring - who are playing at the Big Joy Festival in Vancouver this weekend.
2013 was a big year for Australian music overseas with a strong SXSW contingent and notable tours. Courtney Barnett, Jagwar Ma and Pond have all been noted on England's NME magazine end of year wrap-up. You can hear tracks from all three of these buzz acts on the show today. And we wrap up the show with tracks from the three finalists of Shindig 2013 - Zen Mystery Fogg, Skinny Kids and War Baby. Get on down to the Railway Club next Tuesday night if you're an indie-music loving Vancouver local!
