  • Local heavy, experimental post-rock lords Tangled Thoughts of Leaving follow up their 2015 album Yield to Despair in emphatic fashion, with the intense and in your face No Tether - this week's #RTRFM #LocalFeature 
Recorded throughout 2017 by songwriter and synth wizard Ron Pollard at his iconic Studio Sleepwalker's Dread in North Dandalup, No Tether is an expansive, dynamic expression of their unique take on atmospheric, instrumental, heavy sounds, seeing the band at the top of their game. Depsite only having 7 tracks, No Tether still weighs in at nearly an hour, with several 10 minute plus odysseys, taking the listener on a wild ride through all things post-metal, prog rock and jazz experimentalism, packed with crushing crescendos and intricate instrumentation. 
No Tether is another triumph for the Perth four-piece, further confirming their ability to craft and execute distinctive, intense, alternative instrumental music.

Tune in to RTRFM all week to hear this epic album getting spun, and head to rtrfm.com/features for more killer tunes.
  • Four years since the release of their acclaimed Passerby LP, Melbourne-born New York-based husband & wife duo Luluc have made a refreshing return to music with their third full length album, Sculptor - and it's this week's #FeatureAlbum on #RTRFM.

Vocalist Zoe Randell's unique voice and emotional lyrics take centre stage, complimented by Steve Hasset's smooth backing vocals. Packed with lovely harmonies and folk-tinged guitar work, Sculptor takes you on a journey through love, nostalgia and hypnotic compositions across its 10 tracks, resulting in their most complete work to date.

Tune in to hear this brilliant album spinning all week, and head to rtrfm.com.au/features for more info.
