Preparing: Monday Sunset 2/7/7

Crazy (Theremin version) Randy George The Ether and Aether Experiment website 2:56

I blogged this last week and liked it so much I have to play it today - there's something about the theremin that just seems so futuristic, even though it's been kicking around for more than 50 years. The whole idea of playing an instrument without touching it, just interacting with electro-magnetic thingamies - it's ace. :)

Race Various Artists Stone 4:16

Stone was a classic Oz bikie exploitation film from the mid 70s - this is one tune from the psychedelia soaked rock soundtrack.

Flame Trees Sarah Blasko Standing On The Outside (The Songs Of Cold Chisel) 5:21

Beautiful cover that gets better with each listening.

High Times Elliott Smith New Moon 3:11

Oh Elliot, why did you leave us so soon? - this is a slightly darker track for Elliot Smith but like all the others, it's fracking brilliant.

This Room Fat Freddys Drop Based on a True Story 5:00

Smooth kiwi dub/reggae from an amazing band live.

I'm Slowly Turning Into You The White Stripes Icky Thump 4:28

From the new album, this features a Jaggerish tint to vocals, slinky rock, layered voices and is a great tune.

Help Save The Youth Of America Billy Bragg Must I Paint You a Picture? The Essential Billy Bragg [Disc 1] 2:48

A little old school Bill - at his barking best.

Everybody Knows Rufus Wainwright Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man 4:30

Great cover from a slightly disappointing album of Cohen covers by people you would think would do better.

Machines Work B(if)tek 2020 3:58

Warm beeps and bloops from a couple of one time Canberrans.

In Front of Me Tzu Smiling At Strangers 3:37

Infectiously lively and upbeat rock hiphop from Melbourne's TZU

Quick Way To Hell The Fuelers Hot Dang 3:42

Very smooth local rockin' country.

No one will Cody Chestnut The Headphone Masterpiece 2:59

Even smoother 70s style soul

Dry The Rain The Beta Band 3 E.P.'s 6:06

The song John Cusack played in High Fidelity with the promise that it would make five people would buy the album - and it is that good

Made of stone The Stone Roses The Very Best Of 4:16

Great early 90s Brit-rock from the Stoneys.

The Room Got Heavy Yo La Tengo I Am Not Afraid Of You And I Will Beat Your Ass 5:10

Amazing album - out there song.

Koolism Is Koolism Diverse EP 3:50

Another one time local outfit, great happy hiphop.

Wonder Riff Baterz Out of Hell 3:03

Smart, funny and perhaps a little odd (but in a good way) song writing from a much missed artist around town.

Hello Pussycat The Titanics Love Is The Devil 1:53

Good fun rock track with a completely unsubtle message

Asthma attack The Fiery Furnaces Gallowsbird's Bark 2:08

Odd bassy and fun rockabilly styled tune

Chinito Chinito Ry Cooder Chavez Ravine 4:52

This is a bit of a fave with the PC and I completely understand

I Don't Want To Play Football Belle & Sebastian Storytelling 0:57

Beautiful and low key ending, taken from a movie that you might have missed.
