Then we have something new from Brian Campeau, who ends the show with another beautiful new track.
There's somewhat-post-rocky indie stuff from Brisbane's The Riflebirds, and Sydney dubstep artist Anomie remixing Monk Fly.
We have a new track from 3ofmillions, whose pianist/keyboardist Adrian Klumpes will be dropping in next week for a chat about their new album and album launch.

We had Richard Barbieri (ex-Japan keyboardist), some freaky new Murcof, some excellent new shoegaze from Rubber Records' Take Me On The Wildest Spree compilation, new Momus (collaborating with Germlin), old northstation and the amazing Maga Bo... and more!

Newtown Festival day, always a hot/sunny one! I dashed in after an after-party, as you do, with a big pile of new stuff to foist on you as usual.
We had a number of contributions from Vol. 9 of the bip_hop generation series on (surprisingly) the BiP_HOp label, including Sydney's own Adrian Klumpes. Also in, is the new album from his amazing trio 3ofmillions, which is out in a couple of weeks and getting launched at the end of the month.
We've got the second in Funckarma's dubstep-influenced dubstoned series of EPs, plus a new album from the duo, and some new "mutant dubstep" from Cardopusher and something from the debut compilation also on the Greek label Spectraliquid.
The Bug (appearing at next year's Sydney Festival!) gives us a new single, and also his new duo with Ricky Ranking, King Midas Sound.
In the middle, a few pieces of a more "post"-classical bent, including looped and effected electric cello from Bela Emerson (not very classical at all), Jóhann Jóhannsson first covering Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark, and then combining orchestral and electronic music on his new album Fordlândia. Plus we had a couple of Max Richter's 24 Postcards in Full Colour.
Later back to the electronic with Funckarma, and also some amazing stuff from Abelcain & Cdatakill on the ever-reliable Ad Noiseam.

Amazingly, I didn't even cover all of the new loot from this week, so next week there'll be more lovely new sounds for ya.
