Round up your emos, it’s time for a crying sesh. Hailing from Melbourne, Tiny Little Houses may as well be sailing around the world in nothing but an ocean of their fan’s tears from the stellar release that is Snow Globe. I say this, because the EP holds no respite from the doom and gloom that surrounds our everyday menial existence. This EP however, differentiates itself from it’s predecessor, You Tore Out My Heart (2015) significantly through it’s intense deliberations with a darker side, both lyrically and sonically. Grappling with a heavier, fuzzier sound, singer, Caleb Karvountzis, swirls and twirls his audience through the pitfalls of humanity and the consequences of taking risks in relationships or in the wider society.
It was a slow day at Radio Monash. I was sitting there playing my music and everybody was going around doing their own thing. It was really slow. But I guess the music made it more fun. Music and books make everything fun, don’t they? Listen to know more!
Also, P.S: the RadMon AGM is on 18th October. Anyone interested fill up the nomination forms available at the radio station, it’s the last day they’re taking nominations. Hope to see you all there!
Alicia Keys has been an all-time favourite artist of mine since I was a young-un, and I’ve loved following her progress alongside my own musical endeavours. Her songs are heartfelt, raw and passionate, with this natural feel drawing both from her craftsmanship as a songwriter and a pianist. Hence, her latest release ‘Blended Family’ brought me great excitement, in anticipation for her new album being released November 4th!
On tonight’s show we heard from local Australian artists Swindail, Basenji and Wave Racer, as well as Tkay Maidza who is due to release her first full album soon! Other highlights include tracks from Lido, Cashmere Cat and a funky throwback from Stex with “Still Feel the Rain.”
We discover the new world of Irish Music. We have a #FlashbackFriday by listening to some old Bollywood Tunes and High School Musical (Don’t laugh! It’s a great musical!). We basically just have a rad time. And as usual, no callers. Listen to know more!
In an Extra B Radio first, we got to sit down to talk with Australian taste-makers and tune breakers Seb (Basenji) and Sid (swindail) for a quick chat about tour things, clothes things and music things during their stop at Monash for the Homework tour hosted by V Energy Drink Australia. Due to a technical error, we have unfortunately lost the interview with Swindail, which not only included cake tastings but also a surprise cameo from Wave Racer! Bummer! I’m kicking myself over it, but hopefully we’ll have the opportunity to interview them again as they continue to slay. Incredibly talented producers and lovely human beings.
LA pop rockers, Bleached have continued to wow audiences on their ongoing tour of Australia in promotion of their second album, Welcome the Worms. This is the first time that the trio: singer, Jennifer, lead guitarist, Jessie and bassist, Micayla have crossed our shores and hit up Melbourne’s renowned Northcote Social Club on the 30th of May.
A Bourke Street Mall busker, Tash Sultana has truly taken the world by storm. She is currently on a massive Australian tour (after an eventful luggage mishandling incident that made global news), and is set to become a major name in Australian music. So for those of you who have not seen her fantastically engaging and charismatic sets in Bourke Street, I strongly suggest you check out her EP Notion.
I’m coming over for tea. Get the placemats ready, wipe down the walls, lay out the bats. So when they say, ‘this is why we can’t have nice things’, it’s time to thrash! Read more …
On this episode of the drop, there is a tribute to Loki and Chairman Carr (Liesl from ‘The Sound of Music’) along with music you can tap your feet to. Enjoy!
