  • RTRFM is not in the least bit embarrassed to announce its 40th birthday thanks to the era-spanning roll call of WA artists who have banded together to pop a cork and toast our wrinkles on November 19 at @perthconcerthall .

The Big 40 is a four-stage celebration of RTRFM’s rich history and its deep connection with all corners of the WA music scene. In the main auditorium and much-loved verandah space, heavyweights from multiple genres will toast the station. 
Highlights of this carefully-curated program include @abbemayzing  performing with @wayjo , @odettemercy and Her Soul Atomics performing with a Tongan choir, a rare-as-hens-teeth gig by ‘90s darlings Adam Said Galore, hip hop trailblazers @downsyde reimagining their catalogue with strings and an exclusive performance of Red Jezebel’s classic album Revelations. 
Plus, @mt.mountain  performing Dust with special guests,  songs in Noongar language from @milbindi  and Guy Ghouse and a very special performance by WAM Hall of Famer Rick Steele.

Pre-sales from tomorrow, sign up to Perth Concert Hall's mailing list for tickets. General admission on sale Wednesday from their website.

  • The local feature is huge this week - After a string of singles, Alex Hayes' @hylamusic project is ready to release their debut album, Osaka. Produced by acclaimed Perth engineer Sam Ford, the 10 tracks effortlessly combine a wide range of styles and influences. Rooted in dream-poppy shoegaze, the tracks take twists and turns through grunge influenced, garage rock, kaleidoscopic Brit-pop and psychedelic sounds sprinkled throughout, all with an extra serving of distortion and noise.

  • This weeks RTRFM Feature comes in the form Brooklyn's foremost purveyors of Afrobeat @antibalas
Five years and a significant number of line-up changes later, they're are back with a 5 track album of extended cuts that harks back to the bands
 first releases, placing a stronger emphasis on funk and groove. Where The Gods Are In Peace is a concept album of sorts, with the central theme of an alien joining forces with humans to save the world, a move signalled by the quality of this latest album.
