Track of the Day 29/09/16 – ‘Up to Anything’ by The Goon Sax

Australia is 'on point' - like a hip prepubescent character from Neighbours would probably say - when it comes to endearing indie music. Dick Diver and Courtney Barnett for example are just two excellent acts from Melbourne. For today's track of the day though, we turn to Brisbane for The Goon Sax. Formed in 2013, they consist of Riley … Continue reading Track of the Day 29/09/16 – ‘Up to Anything’ by The Goon Sax

Track of the Day 28/09/16 – ‘A.H.B.’ by S U R V I V E 

Every man and beast has probably watched Stranger Things now, the Netflix show that's captured people's imaginations with its blend of Spielbergian Sci-Fi and unadulterated nostalgia for the 1980s. The excellent soundtrack has also pricked up folks' ears - it's the brainchild of Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein who are one half of  S U R … Continue reading Track of the Day 28/09/16 – ‘A.H.B.’ by S U R V I V E

Track of the Day 22/09/16: On Top by Hoops

Hoops are not a band from the East End of Glasgow (one for the football fans out there) but come all the way from Bloomington, Indiana. Their output so far has consisted of sunny, low-fi psychedelic rock - Tape #2, Tape #3 and EP sound like someone's set foot across a treasure trove of demos from a legendary 80s cult … Continue reading Track of the Day 22/09/16: On Top by Hoops

Track of the Day 20/09/16: Megadrive Lamborghini by Soccer96

For some odd reason, Soccer96's name conjures memories of International Superstar Soccer 98, the stellar Nintendo 64 game. On its cover, former Dundee player Fabrizio Ravenelli looks sternly at Paul Ince, like a souped-up version of the Smith and Jones head-to-head sketch.  The track title for today's track Megadrive Lamborghini fittingly references video games (of course there had to be some convoluted and tenuous link … Continue reading Track of the Day 20/09/16: Megadrive Lamborghini by Soccer96
