  • The Final Talk The Talk is live now! Tune In, Stream, and enjoy the final instalment of Talk The Talk on RTRFM 92.1...
  • This week's RTRFM feature album is Man Alive! from King Krule (aka @pluvials). London's Archy Marshall reprises his King Krule alias with his dark and despondent third album, Man Alive! At just 25, Marshall is already one of modern alternative music's most influential artist, a position he more than maintains on his new album, a record that expands on his now signature fusion of hip-hop, post-punk, dub and jazz elements, all underscored by his unmistakable gravely vocal drawls. Lyrically, Marshall wittily and poetically details observations both of society and of himself, touching on themes from isolation, miscommunication and self-doubt, on this record that's he's described as a "pre-document of fatherhood", resulting in a potentially his most personal and profound album to date.
  • This week's local feature album is fechno from Yawn Chorus.

Never one to sit still, playing around town in bands like COSY, Supernaked, Lucas Kole & Noah Dillon, local multi-instrumentalist Sam Rocchi has unveiled his debut solo album fechno under his Yawn Chorus alias, an album of engrossing, exploratory, emotional electronic compositions. Using old samples in entirely new ways, fechno is an awesome blend of neo-classical meets ambient compositions with an injection of pulsing dance-floor inspired percussion, while all sorts of synths and serene instruments blend smoothly in the mix. A departure from much of the music we've heard from Rocchi in the past, fechno shows this songwriter, performer and producer's depth when it comes to crafting electronic music.
  • THIS WEDNESDAY, talented musician Natasha Shanks of @littlelordstreetband is joining us at Wireless Hill Park from 7pm for #girlsgotrhythm !

The session includes debunking the "masculinity of rock" mythology, a Q&A format about women in music in the 70s and 80s as well as the current music environment, interspersed with unplugged music by this incredible talent!

Tickets available through our bio!
