Sundaze 1738

Hello, .it's F1 weekend again and this time on a track where Mercedes plays 2nd fiddle, not enough straights at Singapore, all weekend thusfar Red Bull were leading the way but when it counted Vettel showed his superskill and left Verstappen and Ricciardo in his wake, Hamilton 5th on the grid and now his fans hoping that Verstappen will take Vettel out, ah yes fans rarely are sportsman like. Anyway hopefully a good race tomorrow ,could be a thunderstorm mixing things up as well, over here we've had the coldest (12C) 16th September since records began, to think a year ago it was 30 Celsius and all this in the temperate sea-climate.



Today's Artists are a hypnotic chillgaze electronic outfit from Australia. Their music is atmospheric and spacey and if you ever find yourself longing for the era where trip-hop bands were dishing out beat-driven noir, then you may want to check out this Australian trio.....slow, cinematic, trip-hop....ambient textures derived from sources like Neu! and Eno, which gives their music a wide open feeling ....N'Joy

All India Radio is the project by Martin Kennedy and Aidan Halloran, both ex-members of Pray TV, one of Australia´s most critically acclaimed indie bands. Pray TV released albums across the world beginning in the late 80´s with legendary Aussie labels Mr Spaceman and Au Go Go Records,  and were acclaimed by international media including Melody Maker, CMJ,Alternative Press, Puncture, Gavin & Rolling Stone and more.

All India Radio are a partially live band and partially studio-based project. The founding (and constant) member of the band is Martin Kennedy, they have released sixteen albums since 2000 and their music has been featured in film and TV including CSI: Miami, One Tree Hill, Sicko, Till Human Voices Wake Us, Big Brother Australia, Bondi Rescue and Recruits. Kennedy with All India Radio and Steve Kilbey provided the original soundtrack music for the Australian post-apocalypse film, The Rare Earth.

They were nominated for Australian recording industry award (ARIA) and have collaborated with Steve Kilbey, Graham Lee (The Triffids), Ed Kuepper (The Saints, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds guitarist) and David Bridie (Not Drowning Waving) among others.

WIRED magazine describe All India Radio perfectly: "Since the turn of the 21st century, All India Radio has mashed the ambient-hop signatures of DJ Shadow, Tortoise and Thievery Corporation with the instantly recognizable guitar soundtracking of Ennio Morricone and Angelo Badalamenti. The resulting narcotic musical textures are capable of floating listeners to galaxies far, far away."

All India Radio return to the lush atmospheric and instrumental music of earlier albums on their album A Low High. Special guests include Graham Lee (The Triffids) on pedal steel guitar, Jen Anderson on strings and some evocative ambient sounds from Australian rock legend Ed Kuepper (The Saints and now Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds guitarist). Past ARIA nominees score another winner with album number six.

Piano & Ambience is All India Radio’s ‘lost’ album recorded in 2004 but never released. Collaborating with piano player Josh Roydhouse, All India Radio have created an album of understated music utilising grand piano, grainy electronic soundscapes and field recordings, with nods to Brian Eno, Harold Budd and Max Ritcher.

Recorded at David Bridie's (Not Drowning Waving) studio by Byron Scullin (Midnight Juggernauts), elements of these songs were used in later All India Radio albums and collaborations with Steve Kilbey (The Church). This is the first time the songs are presented in their full original form.

The album features the voice of Professor Don Gurnett, famous for his NASA ‘space sounds’ (used by the Kronos Quartet on their famous Sun Ring recordings) and a cameo by The Church’s Steve Kilbey (Under The Milky Way).
