This episode was performed live at the super popular local wood-fired pizza joint, Creekbread, for their charity night supporting The Point Artist Society. I started playing about 45 minutes after waking up from a reasonably large night, so apologies if my radio performance was a little askew. The one thing that held me up was the quality of the tunes I busted out. It was a sweet show, musically. The crew eventually showed up, most arriving just as I was playing my last track, but a fantastic evening was had by all.

The highlights for my week were the discovery of Wildcat! Wildcat!, alt-J and Bravestation. I can’t get enough of these tracks, stay tuned for more material from them! I also showcased some of my favourite beats from the stunning albums by A.A. Bondy, Perfume Genius, The Maccabees, Caveman and Phantogram, who have all been on high rotation in my life of late.

I found a sweet remix of one of my favourite Active Child songs, which I was skeptical to accept initially, given how much I love the Active Child album that it is taken from, however I am now a solid fan of White Arrows. Ben Browning, the bass player from one of my all time favourite bands, Cut Copy, has also released some solo material which should be checked out.

At long last my good friend, Katie Carter, finally got to play her track from Groove Armada, which I have been holding off on playing for about 3 shows now ha ha. Check it, it is really cool.

Hope you enjoy!
