  • This years @rtrfm #inthepines2019 poster contains an animated slipmat that you can cut out and use. The posters hit the streets today. You can grab one from In the Pines and make your own slip mat. 
The animation works at 45rpm viewed through a camera set at 30fps and a fast shutter speed. 
Amazing work from @teekenng. 
Song: ‘Heartache Moon’ by @TheLittleLordStreetBand
  • Because two is better than one, we’re bringing you DOUBLE ODWAY for the next three weeks. 
To celebrate #inthepines2019 you’ll hear back to back #slightlyodway on your radio every Wednesday. 
We kick off with @gfarrellmusic and @ssalaryy from 7.30 tomorrow morning 🔥🔥🔥
  • Rest in Peace to one of the true musical innovators, Scott Walker.
  • This week's Local Feature is courtesy of @thespunloves with their release, Premium Viewing.

Honing their distinctive brand of jangly indie-garage rock over the last half decade, the band have prepared their debut full-length, Premium Viewing, further cementing themselves as one of Perth's finest independent bands, a record that showcases their knack for catchy songwriting and tight musicianship. 
Across eleven tracks they deliver a carefully crafted mix of laid-back guitar pop meets frenetic garage rock, with a healthy dash of psychedelia here and there for good measure. The LP’s sound offers a wonderful point somewhere between classic 60s surf-pop and 70s garage sounds, guiding the listener through the sound of suburban backyards and sheds, heaving DIY gigs and tranquil coastlines. 
Grab it now!
  • This week's Feature Record is kindly brought to you by the incredible, Nilufer Yanya with her release, Miss Universe.

@niluferyanyaaaaaa blends roaring guitars with jazzy, minimalist influenced soul to create worlds of words with her undeniable pop sensibilities. Yanya has crafted an engaging concept album to help tie these seemingly disparate elements together as a continuous narrative, implemented through hip-hop style skits and interludes featuring unsettling, automated health warning from the titular Miss Universe, courtesy of fictional company WWayHealth (We Worry About Your Health). Grab yourself a copy now via @atorecords & @inertiamusic.
  • Today we let you know the last six bands for In The Pines 2019.

Having had one hell of a 2018, In The Pines would not be right unless @carla_geneve was on the bill. Her track Greg’s Discount Chemist was the most played song on RTRFM last year and we are so proud to have her on In The Pines 2019.

Natasha Eldridge is a Noongar woman hailing from Perth and with her band Kruise Kontrol makes some beautiful and haunting pop music.

Having toured the US and Europe, Zerodent are back and ready to play In The Pines. Lead by local legend Pex and Lee Jenkins on vocals, Zerodent’s fast paced garage at its bloody best.

@patchowtheband are one of the hardest working bands in Perth. Countless gigs and continuous releases, the four piece make the no fuss rock and roll.

Occasionally a young band emerges that makes you take notice, @YomiShip are that band of 2018 and will most likely be that band of 2019 too.

And finally, @gracebarbemusic Grace Barbé. A living legend in the Perth music scene and a staple to its creative energy, Grace is a force to be absolutely reckoned with.

The astute of you out there will only count 19 bands... One more to come.... Super secret.

  • Tune in to Breakfast tomorrow as we reveal the final six bands for #inthepines2019... Some math genius may do the sums and realise we will then be one band short.... ohhh mystery.
