From our families to yours, and all of us here at Radio Monash – Happy Holidays!

It’s Radio Monash’s biggest show of the decade! 16 Presenters, a Live Studio Audience, a Heap of Free Giveaways and enough Christmas Cheer to drown a Reindeer! Join Yusuf Aly, Shelbui Inglis, Donald Shackleton, Anthony Crabb, Lola Ayeni, Connor Johnston, Paul Waxman, Sayu Umeda, Aleks Djukic, Peggie Sakwa, Avanti Oberoi, Annie Zeleznikow, Oisin Collins, Paris Balla, Sahana Kashyap, and Helen Nguyen for the ultimate treat in festive viewing. With interviews, open discussions and messages from all around – This is one RadMon special you do not want to miss!

Radio Monash would like to extend a giant amount of thanks to Rob and Leonie for the use of their space which continues to enchant and delight hundreds of locals every night with their incredible lights display. Having the absolute privilege of sitting down with the couple on the night, it was so refreshing to discover that the only aspect of their character that outweighs their creative genius is their genuine humility and selflessness – continuing to raise funds for ‘Very Special Kids’ – the Children’s Charity. You can catch Radio Monash’s interview with Rob and Leonie right here on Radio Monash from Boxing Day, as well as listening to a few highlights in the special below.

Funking Dam! k-Lab debuts ‘Worlds’ EP

The word funk gets thrown around as inappropriately as alcohol at a sixteenth birthday party. You think over-consumption is cool at the time, but slowly you grow up and mature, take responsibility and eventually learn to walk the walk. With “Worlds”, K-lab is definitely walking the walk.

Groove oozes all over this record. Hip Hop sythphonic out of space trip, with plenty of variety featuring drum and bass, dubstep and punchy beat stabs you’ll find on track’s like ‘Don’t lose yourself.’ Yet with all the electronic influence, reminiscent of the 80s, combined with classic, palm muted guitar licks still maintain serious soul, a core ingredient to the funk.

Tiny Little Houses release sophomore EP ‘Snow Globe’

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.

The Drop S1.E4 – The Uzhe.

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 – ‘Blended Family’ Track Review

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!

PODCAST: Extra B Radio Interview: Basenji & Swindail

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.

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.
