No Friday Repeat Today

There was no show this morning at 9am due to the live announcement of the headliners for the FIGJAM festival, which was exclusive to JacRadio.

Don’t worry though, as you have 2 more bites of the cherry with repeats of the episode at 5pm on Sunday afternoon, and 10pm Monday night. All times are Australian Eastern Time, which is +10GMT.


Musciality 2011 – Episode 10 – hauntology + New Music

This week we’ll dip into ambient influenced by electronic soundtracks, folk and rock half-remembered from childhood: this is “hauntology” scene from which we’ll hear from Pye Corner Audio and Belbury Poly, plus a parallel development in the urban decay of the latest Burial EP.

We’ll also hear a modern producer re-edit Fela Kuti, a new piece of electro-pop, some old-school Human League from the late 70s and a modern piece of jazzy disco from a New Zealand kid living in Paris.

Question partially answered

In next week’s episode of Musicality I mention the lack of information I could find about a producer called Magic (nee Magick) Mountain aka Harry Bornstein. I’m spinning his fine remix of Holy Other.
