Point That Thing Somewhere Else / SOB 05.04.17

05/05/2017     / / / / / /

Kevin from Evening Fires & Deep Water Acres is back in the virtual chair tonight to captain us “further out of usual SOB waters for two hours of prime 1980s New Zealand sounds, taking in plenty of psych pop drone and all points in between …”

There’s enough backstory, minutiae and pertinent trivia on this trek to make for some exquisitely boring radio … a couple times over. We’ll keep the antennae focused on the tunes, where they should be. If you’d like to dive down the rabbit hole, Audio Culture: The Noisy Library of New Zealand Music has plenty of skinny on what we’re covering tonight, and then some.

Many, many thanks again to Kevin for curating another fantastic sonic travelogue.
