Shrapnel is the brainchild of Sydney-sider Sam Wilkinson, previously known from other outfits Day Ravies and Mope City. The five-piece indie-rock band is comprised of an all-star cast, also featuring members of Dollar Bar, Miners, and Weak Boys. Their debut album ‘Tranceplanetsugarmouth’ came out in November 2016, through Brisbane indie label, Coolin’ By Sound, and has received stellar reviews from Rolling Stone, Amateur Hour, and 4ZZZ. Filled with Australian drawl and lo-fi psych rock, Shrapnel are very quickly tearing their way up the food chain, and garnering attention in all the right places.

Recorded at Sonic Masala Fest, Greenslopes Bowls Club, Brisbane, 13th August 2016

Fresh outta Canberra, Agency are a 4 piece comprised of a smattering of players from other CBR bands, featuring ex (and current) members of Hoodlum Shouts, Spartak and A Drone Coda. Guitarist Shoeb Ahmad also runs the band’s record label ‘HellosQuare Recordings’, adding another hat to his metaphorical millinery store. They released their debut album ‘The Stillness Of Speed’ in late 2015, which is filled with spiky, bass led noise rock, and just a touch of experimental rumble. In 2016, they released two EP’s through two different record labels; Do We Go It Alone? in May on Tenzenmen and I Know I’m In Flames in July through Sonic Masala.

Airing details: Originally via Zed Digital, 7-8pm, Sunday 26th of February 2017.

Show production and engineering: Branko Cosic.
