The New Weird Australia radio-not-radio show returns in its original form for the first time since 2012, with sixty minutes of new mutant music from the upside down, presented by Stu Buchanan.
In this first episode of the rebooted show, we hear the new single from agitprop synth-punk duo Laughing Gear; plus two cuts from a new compilation from Oxtail Recordings from Loose-y Crunché and OVRSCN; experimental jungle meets dark and delirious storytelling courtesy of jobfit; and Altered States Tapes gives us something old and something new with releases from Carnage and Low Flung.
We also listen to a wild brand of apocalyptic art-music from Melbourne’s Omega Point; beautiful broken piano and dismembered electronics from London based ex-pat Laila Sakini; a cut from the new album from violinist and vocalist Happy Axe; and we take a journey into alt-pysch and freak-disco on the debut release from Glass Beams.
