Two albums came out yesterday in Oz that are both easy early contenders for album of the year - Animal Collective's Merriweather Post Pavilion and Andrew Bird's Noble Beast. The limited edition of the Andrew Bird is highly recommended as the packaging is beautiful and it comes with a whole second album of instrumentals, called Useless Creatures.
A variety of other old and slightly new tracks tonight for your delectation. Fairly shoegazey and ambient on the whole.

Lots of exciting stuff for the beginning of the year... "A Split" is the split 12" from Extra Life and Nat Baldwin that we started with, segueing into more "post-classical" sounds courtesy of Parenthetical Girls' amazing Entanglements album. And I played a couple of other tunes by them from their earlier releases...
Amazing song from Devendra Banhart's Megapuss, and a couple of fantastic remix/collaboration/cover versions of SJ Esau from a briefly-downloadable album (try the link below if you're quick)...
Then we had an interview with the lovely Mr Richard Adams of The Declining Winter, a long collaborative improv from Sydney/Melbourne (respectively) artists Whale & Thorn, and some more wonders courtesy of Machinefabriek (one new to me, one genuinely new).
Also this week, some sneak previews at the fantastic collaboration Klumpes Ahmad, due soon on the latter half's hellosQuare label, and a few Sydney Festival artists at the end...
