Its all topsy turvy and very curvy coming up in our 221st edition of Curved Radio this weekend!
Joining Gayle Austin this week via Skype, will be our fabulous curvy crewster Janice Slater of ARTERIAL FLOW with another selection of great tracks to share with us. Janice will be playing tracks from Nicole Johänntgen who has started the SOFIA Support Of Female Improvising Artists organisation and also one from Australian Jazz/Blues legend, Judy Jacques.
Gayle will also be interviewing Sydney singer/songwriter, Donna Amini. Donna will be talking about her Iranian background, singing an Iranian song and playing a couple of her own gorgeous tracks.
And if that wasn’t enough, Gayle also chats to Ellen Kirkwood of The Mieville Project, (which also features sax legend Sandy Evans) and is a specially commissioned work for the Fourth Sydney International Women’s Jazz Festival and having its premiere this Tuesday!
If the stars and timelines align this week, we just may be able to get the fantastic Australian singer, musician, instrument inventor, visual artist, traveller and collaborator Colin Offord in Taipei. Fingers crossed!
mr.K this week joins us to talk about the first ever Independent Label Week(Nov. 9-15). Think of it like the annual Record Store Day initiative but for independent record labels around the globe and their artists. In this spot he’ll be playing tracks from various labels and artists who are participating in this week long event like the The Adult Teeth Recording Company in Hull (UK) who kicked this whole thing off and featuring one of their artists, James Wood. Also, our Curvy friends, the Oz label, HopeStreet Recordings have signed up and are launching a very limited edition release from The PutBacks during the week which we’ll hear. And finally on the Bleeding Gold Records label from San Diego, California we hear a track from fuzztastic New York based band Les Bicyclettes Blanches.
Keeping the sounds and chat extra curvy of course, Gayle will be swervin’ and curvin’ the musical rickshaw all over the known universe this week bringing you sounds from some of the best independent artists around.
So put your wheels on, Curvies and strap yourselves in! Are you ready?
