Pinch Points are the feature album this week on 2SER, with Process, an uncompromising and direct punk-rock collection that addresses the malaise, anxieties and injustices of life in modern Australia. There’s equal measure of adrenalin, anger and awareness throughout and we’re excited to be playing this regularly from today.


Melbourne/Naarm’s Flightless Records have released their first label compilation, Love Hurts, featuring never-before released material from some of their regulars and friends. Despite the theme of hearbreak, there are some genuinely uplifting gems on here courtesy of Beans, Traffik Island and Maston among others. Encompassing Flightless’ indie-rock, psych and jazz pillars, this is a high quality compilation and worth checking out, and playing regularly from today on the station.

Similarly, Isle of Eigg (Scotland) recluse Pictish Trails’ latest, Island Family has a similar spirit, filled with wild electro-acoustic pop adventures that jump between (relatively) conventional indie rock tracks, and strange distortions with sparse downtempo moments.

We’re getting sweet frequencies from Canada this week, as the debut album from Toronto-based Hannah Bussiere Kim, aka Luna Li brings a sentimental tangent lo-fidelity pop.  with catchy melodies and an explorative range of sounds – casually transposing from fuzzy garage-rock interludes to blue-eyed soul and rnb arrangements with harmonised vocals.

Jumping on the Corridor Train and heading west, the sixth album from Vancouver’s Apollo Ghosts , “Pink Tiger” is an endearing indie-folk outing split across 2 halves and recorded across several years. It begins as a tripped out introspective home recorded acoustic session on the first side, giving way to bright uptempo rock on the 2nd, with a diy aesthetic prevailing throughout.



We’re also proud to be featuring some homegrown disco-laed soul from Karen Lee Andrews & Oyobi is in the playlist as well, with their modern take on the Curtis Mayfield/Patti Jo classic “Make me believe in you”. Keeping on the soul tip, the new Mavis Staples and Levon Helm collaboration “You got to move” is on 2SER and give a taste of what to expect from Stax legend and Hall-Of-Famer when her new album drops in May.

Also spinning in high rotation from today is the new single from Arnhem-Land powerhouse King Stingray . Entited “Camp Dog”, its a wonderfully open and uptempo rock tune to get your ears around.



Canadian indie rockers Ducks Ltd. keep on  turning out incredible singles as well, and out this week is their cover of The Jesus And Mary Chain’s “Head on”.

Also playing loud are some superb off-centre post-punk from solo bedroom producer  The Cassette Scandal,  beautiful electronica from debut artist RONA, and the latest from local champions Body Type and Melbourne’s Screensaver. Plenty more as well from today on 107.FM if you want to get listening!
