Well it kind of is. I just thought I’d be a little controversial with my post heading. It’s NZ Music Month here in NZ so I thought I’d play some NZ music on Starlifter Radio. Actually that’s not true either, the kiwi tunes I’m playing on my little internet radio station are getting played because they’re fucking great and I’m really diggin’ them at the mo.
To start off with I’ve got the original “This is NOT the Christchurch sound” CD. It features songs on the Indie Rock to Electro spectrum from bands and artists such as Ed Muzik, Tom Cosm, Break Mission Kills, Charlie ASH, Pig Out, Get Set Play, The L.E.D.s, Tiger Tones, 5 1/2 Minutes, Electro Pussy Posse and more. We released it with RDU 98.5 FM in June 2007 to get some attention for all the local acts we thought deserved a little more attention.
Then we have my latest DJ mix ‘Interstella Week Beats Your Intergalactic Year”, a set containing electronic beats and grooves from LCD Soundsystem, Daft Punk, DIM, Uberzone, The Future Sound of London, Vinyl Life & Joey Beltram, Rocha + Lewinger, Underworld and Telefon Te Aviv.
And further on the Christchurch tip we’ve got tracks from Bang! Bang! Eche!, Hypercolour, No Aloha; Auckland cats Bandicoot; and Ex-Dunners now AK kats (I think) Brains.
There is also the latest from School of Seven Bells, these guys are amazing!
So that’s the go, there’s heaps more on there as well so be sure to tune into www.StarlifterRadio.com and get down with your bad elf.
