About Us

Like a book club for music nerds, join Dan Gordon and Maia Bilyk take a deep dive in a different album each week. Between the nostalgic and brand new, sometimes broken down by the artist themselves.

Recorded and broadcasted on the stolen land of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge their ongoing struggle. Sovereignty was never ceded.

Yves Tumor's Heaven to a Tortured Mind

Stripping away the avant-garde pandemonium of their earlier work, the form Yves Tumor takes on throughout their fourth record, Heaven to a Tortured Mind, is the most accessible incarnation of their persona yet, revealing a mercurial genius who buries brilliant pop songs beneath ever-increasing sonic tumults. With boundless creative imagination, Tumor channels blues, funk and R&B into psychedelic soul and rock anthems for the chaos of the 21st century. Swaying and raging, it’s the sound of pop history refracted through a contemporary mindset, earning comparisons to Bowie, Parliament or Funkadelic at their most revolutionary and whacked-out, pushing rock music to apocalyptic extremes. In a career marked by transformation, their fourth LP is their most audacious release yet, a strident move to the middle that never sounds like a compromise. TRACKS PLAYED:'Gospel For A New Century' 'Medicine Burn' 'Identity Trade' 'Kerosene!' 'Hasdallen Lights' 'Romanticist' 'Dream Palette' 'Super Star...

TRACKS PLAYED:'Excuses' 'Promises' 'Wet Cement' 'Cold War' 'Patient Patient''Pleasure Sighs''Hand Me Downs' POP ETC - 'Live It Up''Mason Jar''All Day Day Light''Stitches''Sleeping In'.

Yaeji's WHAT WE DREW 우리가 그려왔던

EThe first full-length project from Korean-American producer Yaeji, is a timely ode to the blisses of community and the simple joys of domestic life. Straddling the blurry lines between dream pop, woozy hip hop and spacious, DIY house, WHAT WE DREW 우리가 그려왔던 makes some surprising detours from Yaeji’s signature introverted club music into industrial, breakbeat, ambient and jungle. Defined by Yaeji's deep appreciation of community, the record stands out from other prescribed self-isolation listening as a celebration of all the small pleasures we used to take for granted: family, friendship, routine. TRACKS PLAYED: 'MY IMAGINATION 상상' 'WHAT WE DREW 우리가 그려왔던' 'IN PLACE 그 자리 그대로' 'WHEN I GROW UP''Last Breath' [EP2]'Raingurl' [EP2]'MONEY CAN'T BUY (feat. Nappy Nina)' 'FREE INTERLUDE (feat.
