Playlist 30.08.09 (11:10 pm)

Tonight's theme is... there is no theme!
LISTEN AGAIN via the link at the bottom.

Starting with the British indietronica (sorry) of epic45, with a favourite old track and something from their fabulous new mini-album.
Then we had the first (and definitely not last) appearance of Kevin De Broux' Pink Reason on Utility Fog, just as he leaves Sydney it appears. Suicide might be an influence on this track, but he can go from trashy punk rock to banjo-led country blues, to experimental guitar washes.
Another interesting solo artist is Alps of New South Whales, who give us another excellent bit of lo-fi keyboard stuff from his latest album.
Then a couple of remixes. Sheffield punk band Calvinball get the 65daysofstatic treatment, and Theo Bard’s socially conscious acoustic reggae gets wonderfully done over by Animals on Wheels. Download links for both below!
Following these, Mount Eerie goes black metal! Well, sort-of. His understated vocals are still there, under a massive storm of distorted guitar noise.
Sydney's CAD Factory kidz & friends, Grace Before Meals, released a double EP a month or two ago, and we took a lovely song from EP1, with cello & trumpet accompanying Vic's piano and vocal. More from them next week! After them, glittering piano and guitar drones from Sydney/Canberra superduo Klumpes Ahmad.
The multitalented multi-instrumentalist Peter Broderick re-releases his Home album any minute now in Australia, along with a bonus disc called Second Home, highlighting his talent with strings and loop pedals along with his lovely vocals, guitar and piano. Tonight we have a sampling of three very different songs from him.
Following that, Toronto stalwart Ohad Benchetrit's mostly solo project Years extends the experimentalism of his iconic postrock band Do Make Say Think in new directions. DMST have a new album out any minute, but we heard the first track from their very first album.
Richard Adams' solo project the declining winter had a new "single" out, and it's one of the best tracks to come out of the Hood stable. Melbourne genius part timer remixed it, and we also heard the original mix, as well as an old Hood favourite.
More indietronica from Melbourne's The Red Tree was followed by something rather different, in a folky vein, from Beth Jeans Houghton (produced, very non-intrusively it sounds, by Tunng’s Mike Lindsay).
Underlapper member Morning Stalker createst scintillating dronescapes with guitar, fx and vocals. hellosQuare have collected his recordings thus far in an EP/mini-album called In Units, from which we took the multilayered "Tomentose". Another long and beautiful track followed from vladislav delay’s new album, which should be available by the end of this week in Oz.
The bomb the bass / lali puna track that followed is a morr music classic, combining Tim Simenon's blinding breakbeats with the glitched up vocals of Valerie Trebeljahr.
Then LA glitch-hop/crunk/wonky producer edIT takes Busdriver into weird territories, while Eskmo takes us up the West Coast to San Francisco, with one of the best wonky tracks of the year.
Luke Vibert’s been feeling the Bass lately, as we hear on the first track from his new album, followed by some bass & programming from Sydney's Silver Bone Tone, and we finish up with a bit of a cult classic of psychedelic folk from Rodriguez.
