Alta – Stay Awhile by Chris

ALTA are no strangers to Fuck the Radio but if for some reason you ignored our urgings to GO GRAB THEIR BRILLIANT FREE EP last time, perhaps this reminder will sway you. Check out the dope new video above while you are at it.

Been digging this kind of sound lately- a little different from the usual mellow beats and pieces that find their way onto FTRbut it’s a Monday and I’ve just re-charged my batteries with a 13hour sleepfest. Perfect way to start the week with a positive attitude.

Olympic Ayres is an indie duo from Sydney, Australia. Check out the video above, and give The View a free download below.

PS: From Melbourne, Australia? Some exciting news for you soon…



Elizabeth Rose – Ready by Chris

Thought I’d hit you up with something slightly different today; Elizabeth Rose is doing an Aussie tour, and since she’s already established herself as a local favourite on the Summer festival circuit, the news has a-lot of people excited. If you are keen you might want to check out the article I wrote for Purple Sneakers.

The video for her January single titled Ready got released earlier this month. It has lots of colours and seizure-inducing effects- and although I’m not usually a fan of videos that look like someone has vomited rainbows onto film and animated it- the music makes the clip well worth it in this case. Her electronic-pop fusion kind of nods towards the stylings of La Roux, but without sounding like 100 kittens drowning in a pool of acid. Check it.



James Litherland – Where To Turn by Chris

This weekend I’m going to hit you up with another video (perhaps I’ll do this regularly from now on):

The main focus is on the first minute or so- James Blake fans will get tingles. Funnily enough, it was James Blake‘s father who produced Where to Turn, released back in November ’06 before James Blake heavily re-worked it into the minimalist-electronica piece that it is now The Wilhelm Scream. Give the original a listen and see what you think- I must admit progressive rock is not usually my thing, and James Blake did such a magnificent job capturing the mournful emotion behind the lyrics in his version; but I’m a real sucker for talking about samples and the whole father/son thing makes for a neat story.

Of-course, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you simply must check out James Blake‘s The Whilhelm Scream which I coincidently included on this mixtape.

Also, if you think this sort of stuff is cool- I recently wrote an article with some more widely-known samples for Purple Sneakers right here: http://www.purplesneakers.com.au/2012/03/listen-where-does-that-sample-come-from/

A special post for the weekend… I love me some Fatboy Slim but the original sample is pretty dope too.

A good tune for the Ides of March no?

I’m an addict to the stuff Ninja Tune releases on their label. This has been heavily played to my ears. There’s a remix of it in the new years mixtape you can find a few posts back.
