New music mix – February 2013

So 2013 is shaping up to be a pretty great year for music all ready. We’ve already had a new Postal Service track after 10 years, not to mention the first new My Bloody Valentine record in 22 years(!). Plus on the horizon we’ve got new albums on the way from old Riot Radio favourites like Wavves, Theophilus and Bad Religion. Plus there’s already been a handful of exciting new acts ripping shit up: Free Energy, Pure Love, Joey Bada$$, and Bleeding Rainbow to name just a few. Read more

Best Albums of 2011

Another great year for music! Check out our list of the best albums of 2011, complete with a forward by our conservative correspondent, the ever-miserable Steven Sourman. “Sigh… Music used to be so much better when I was young. You used to be able to watch music television or mainstream radio and really be told what you were supposed to like. Not like these kids these days: it’s all interwebs and deciding for themselves. How are they supposed to know which Rolling Stones re-release or new album by an aging 1970s folk singer to buy, when there’s all this new music getting in the way of the classics? This freedom of choice will be the death of us, just you watch. It’s practically communism! Have we already forgotten Vietnam, people?” – Steven Sourman, 2011 15. Blood Orange – Coastal Grooves Mike: A semi-concept album about mid 80s New York drag … Read more

Streaming: Best of 2011 (Part One) Mix

It’s just like a radio station except with recent music, noone is trying to sell you vacuum cleaner insurance between songs, and without the same Lady Gaga song played three times in every hour. So in the spirit of radio: huddle round your phonic devices, light your cigars, remove your pants, and listen in. (I believe that’s how they did it). Best of 2011 (Part One) Mix by Riot Radio Endless Blue – The Horrors Belong – The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart Georgia – Yuck 50 Ways – Telekinesis Thunder On The Mountain – Wanda Jackson (feat. Jack White) Cold Feet – Liam Finn Under Cover Of Darkness – The Strokes Mind Your Manners – Chiddy Bang Sylvia – Emmy The Great Humdrum Town – Theophilus London* January Hymn – The … Read more

Some cool recent stuff that I’ve been listening to

Sorry about the lack of posts lately, folks. Been busy as shit. Expect more content soon, plus more guest posts and more awesomeness etc etc. Anyway, as a stop gap, here’s some cool recent shit that’s been floating my boat lately. Hope you like ’em. Wilco – “I Might” One thing’s for sure, the release of a new Wilco album is an event. While I like pretty much everything Jeff Tweedy has ever done, I do feel that Wilco’s best studio years are behind them. But hey, I honestly hope I’m wrong, and they are absolutely the type of band that have the capacity to surprise you with every move. Also, I’ve found with every album since A Ghost Is Born the songs don’t really take on their true colours until you’ve seen them performed live. So fingers crossed for another NZ tour in 2011. Anyway, the new album is … Read more
