Carry Your Kin by The Breath appeared on the album of the same name in 2016. I have chosen the acoustic version, featured on the Carry Your Kin Acoustic EP. Ríoghnach Connolly sings with an old world patience, accompanied by Stuart McCallum on guitar. This is clean, crisp and very special…
Cave Man – Chris Smither
27 August 2018
How does wisdom come to us? How do we become, wise?
We are so many versions of ourselves in a lifetime. Can we see each version and honour it, thank it and move on? Knowing that each version brought us to here and now, knowing that we did the best we could at the time, and if we didn’t we learnt from it…

Walk the Walk – No Trombones
2 July 2018
Thank you to No Trombones for submitting this weeks track, Walk the Walk. The smooth sound is supported by a great horn section, and the powerful voice of Lil Rounds. Inspired by those that make promises they don’t keep…..hmmm I think we have all known someone like that.
The Proposition #1 – Nick Cave and Warren Ellis
19 June 2018
I drive towards him, he is far away, but not too far.
I have thought of this for years, how to do it, to feel it, to say it, to make it true. He has waited for me to be ready, seeing things for what they were, that which they are no more.
Wild Imagination – Kurt Vile
12 June 2018
I love the rhythm of this, like a slight wind on water, or winter sun on sand, its a clear and gentle message.
Have you scaled back your imagination?

Bernard Fanning, former frontman of the Australian multi award winning band Powderfinger, brings us this weeks heartfelt track, Watch Over Me, released on the Tea and Sympathy Album in 2006.

Follow The Sun – Xavier Rudd
30 April 2018
I feel in between. I try to articulate my in between feeling from heart to pen to paper. Enough words come, out and in the words I ask for inspiration, a way for me to express all the joy and love I hold in my heart. I can feel it more and more, looking for a way out.
Sister Sister – Hat Fitz & Cara Robinson
23 April 2018
Sometimes the truth catches you by surprise, thats what happened to me when I heard this song.
Sisters, grown together, destined for different paths, move away from each other, over distances, over time.
Plutonic Friends – Robert Moses & The Harmony Crusaders
16 April 2018
Sometimes, we stand beside ourselves, our beliefs, and choose to see our world in a different way, expanding more and more, in this state we open ourselves to the unveiling of mysteries. This energetic expansion can leave the rest of our bodies and minds in between for a while, until we catch up to our new way of seeing our world, and ourselves. We feel different, we see things differently, we do things differently, we are, different, changed…
