Andrew Morrison

Andy has a succinct 1-hour show in August, with new music from Anatomist, Dawesville Cut, Liars, Ronnie & Clyde, Keeley and A Certain Ratio. There's an unexpected return from The Boo Radleys with their first new material in 23 years, a striking new single from Low, plus Laura Cantrell and Arab Strap provide alternate takes of the same country pop song originating from 1977.

Brownbutter hails August (well met) and blows a cool breeze across your hot necks with a gust of new music in this month's show including The Lasso, Aesop Rock, MNDSGN, Skee Mask, Speed Stick and the astonishing Senyawa.
Familiar anchors can be heard from Devo, XTC, The Kinks and the Golden Gate (Gospel) Quartet, plus covers of Stone Roses, Sinead O'Connor, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs (and more) in this month's I Got You Covered segment.
Take off your clothes before autumn comes, take off your mask if you want a kiss, take off take off take off. Send love to David Choe and watch his TV show.

Is it time to travel again? No matter where you live, I will take you on an awesome journey to forty-three different nations to hear a wealth of musical treasures - no need for passports, rapid COVID tests, or vaccination records.
This international excursion includes an impressive range of eras and styles, including Thai shoegaze from Yellow Fang, French post-punk from Teledetente 666, Argentine tango (through a Frank Zappafilter) from Gotan Project, Maltese electronica from Llimbs, and a Swiss yodeling stunner.
But that's not all!
I've included amazing examples of Japanese ska with Oreskaband, Icelandic reggae from Hjálmar, and Finnish surf music from Laika and the Cosmonauts.
Enjoy!!

Gareth's August show brings you another two hours of new and current releases plus a few forgotten classics.
There are tracks of various lengths, ranging from super short songs just over 30 seconds long from Japan's o'summer vacation and Korea's Drinking Girls and Boys Choir to a song that's nearly 14 minutes long from Cardiff's Alice Low.
Plus in the 2nd hour Gareth will be joined by guest host Gemma Cullingford, one half of the post-punk electro duo Sink Ya Teeth. She'll be introducing two tracks from her debut solo album 'Let Me Speak', plus four songs of her choice in the feature 'Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue'.

In the first one two-thirds of the songs are from artists Leo has never played before, including Wet Leg, Muscle Vest, Amyl and The Sniffers, Fly Pan Am, Arthur Hnatek & SWIMS, Rainer Trueby, Corrado Bucci & TRUCCY, Admiral Fallow and Khalab & M’berra Ensemble. There are also teaser tracks from forthcoming albums by Efterklang, Low and SUUNS.
Leo’s second August show brings you two glorious hours of tunes from across the musical rainbow. His tracklist is packed with tunes from artists you have probably never come across before, including Scalping, 10 000 Russos, Deliluh, Talhayme, Murman Tsuladze, DKAPZ, Gabriels, Stone Giants & Amon Tobin, Hildegard, Mabe Fratti, Emika and Kety Fusco. There is also a reworking of a song by Radiohead.
Lots and lots beside all this, so be Leo’s guest and treat yourself to a listen.

As I write this I'm 'glowing' a bit in the face of this UK hot spell. What's hot in music? I've no idea to be honest but this is what I'm liking this month ...
Girls In Synthesis are back with a 5 track EP and I'm playing one from it. English Teacher have a new one out which you can also hear on Thomas Blatchford's show, a man of taste there clearly ;-) We actually have one other track we both play this month, can you spot it?
Haiku Salut are teasing us with another from their album that is out at the back end of this month. I also have two featured albums this month too. One from the wonderful SAULT and the other from the superb Throwing Snow.

We return to action this month with an absolute stormer of an August show, featuring tracks from new albums by, among others, Lonely Tourist, Andrew Hung and Black Roots. There's also something from the new Angel Olsen covers EP, a fine new single from Eamon the Destroyer and preview tracks from forthcoming albums by Amyl & The Sniffers and Public Service Broadcasting.
Our featured compilation is an excellent Palestine benefit album from [label]Audio Antihero[/artist] and this month's Peel Back ... features memorable moments in August 1981, 1991 and 2001.

August's two-hour extravaganza features a bunch of acts new to the show, including Glass Beams, Infintie Kamikazee, Louis And The Shakes and a three-way competition for wackiest name between Psychedelic Digestion Therapy, Zeitgeist Freedom Energy Exchange and Warrington-Runcorn New Town Development Plan.
There's some more familiar names too, including new tunes from Goat, Mungo's Hi-Fi, Richard Norris, Blinker & Moses and Jason Beers, two so-unlikely-I-might-have dreamt-them collaborations between Matt Berry and Moon Duo and The Lovely Eggs and Iggy Pop, and a few cheeky re-issues from The Fall, Sun Ra and Captain Beefheart.

Rocker

A one hour show from Rocker this month, including new tracks from The Great Leap Forward; Swansea Sound; Low; The Science Of Words; Hurry; Adam Gibbons; Supermilk; Bachelor and Motorists.
There's electronica from Teho, plus a couple of excellent releases on Happy People Records, from The Co-operators and Melbourne Douglas.
This month's Rocker's Shellac Attack is from 1936, while this month's Educating Elizabeth record is a brand new gospel soul spin.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: The UK's national poo museum is located in Sandown, on The Isle Of Wight

Yes it’s 4 hours again as there’s nothing to do in Sydney as we are fully confined indoors again so you’re all lucky you didn’t get a 6 hour show!
The slew of new music out of the UK isn’t slowing down and our earworm of the year goes to Wet Leg and their cleverly catchy, Chaise Longue which has been garnering play after play here at Ring of Fire central. Out of the UK we’re also loving the new album from Koreless as well as the likes of Baba Ali, The Kessler Cascade, Berwyn, Chamyun and Tot Taylor, just to name a few.
From the metal postcard stable we have pre-release tracks from Chichester’s BOYA and York’s Salem Trials and of course The Legless Crabs. All 3 have albums out later this year.
From the US we’ve got new releases by the Felice Brothers, Babydoll Stiltz, Bendigo Fletcher as well as things we hadn’t before like DM Bob & The Deficits and Merle Hazard who entertains us with a tune about atonal music in Nashville style.
Shortest song in the show comes from the Beatnik Termites and the longest from San Francisco's Cole Odin.
Then there’s things like a Del Shannon re-edit by French wizard Pilooski, Kurt Vile covering the Velvets and Howe Gelb just shy of Bumfuck as well a trip around London c/- Kilburn & the High Roads
Thanks for listening

Thomas Blatchford

The Thomas show in August is dedicated to Dave from Datblygu, who died a few weeks ago, and kicks off with two renditions of arguably his most beautiful work.
The past also visits in a handful of vinyl reissues from The Knife, Venetian Snares and Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, but as usual it's mostly the recent and excellent from the likes of English Teacher, The Vovos, The Bug, Barkaa, DJ Haram, Pillow Pro and other new notables.
One artist is named after a flamethrower, one song is about 'the C word' and there's also an ironically quite lengthy discussion about attention spans.
