  • Goodbye Gondwana by Jacob Diamond is this week's local feature album on RTRFM. Tune in all week as we discover the ins and outs of this incredible piece of work.

Following a massive 12 months of gigging and a string of singles, local Alt-Folk hero Jacob Diamond is ready to unleash his debut full length Goodbye Gondwana.
The result of two years’ worth of writing, tweaking, prodding and reworking with Melbourne based producer Lachlan Carrick (Gotye, Paul Kelly, Gretta Ray), Goodbye Gondwana is an album rooted in the tradition of the great confessional folk-singer, while oozing Diamond's unique and unhinged personality. 
Designed to follow the story of a changing life, Goodbye Gondwana first explores feeling lost, delusional and unsettled, before tackling young, naive and hopeful love, the despair of losing it and finally accepting change as a beautiful necessity. 
Recorded almost entirely live over seven days on a farm in regional WA, Goodbye Gondwana cements Diamond as a songwriter to watch over the coming years. #GoodbyeGondwana #RTRFM #Local #FeatureAlbum #LocalMusic #PerthMusic #PerthRadio #CommunityRadio #TheSoundAlternative
  • Following up the whirlwind success of 2015's Sometimes I Sit and Think, And Sometimes I Just Sit was never going to be an easy task, however on Tell Me How You Really Feel Courtney Barnett has well and truly broken the sophomore slump by delivering an album that cuts cleanly through all the noise and hype. 
From the title, to the blood-red tinged album cover, it's clear that this is no longer an innocent Barnett content to sit, think and examine the world through a lens of self-analysis, but an artist hardened by years in the spotlight ready to get straight to the point. The directness of Tell Me How You Really Feel is both unnerving and exhilarating, Barnett is saying more with less while shifting the focus outward to the world around her with a new boldness in her lyrics. This new tone is backed up by beefy and often heavier instrumentation than we've been previously used to, signaling an exciting new phase in her musical evolution. 
Tell Me You Really Feel indicates Barnett's progression as a musician and songwriter since her debut, and confirms just why she's one of Australia's biggest recent musical exports.

Tell Me How You Really Feel is this week's Feature Album on RTRFM 92.1
Tune in all week to catch more from this incredible album
