is it too early to start fetishising compact discs? this discman is hot.


The Millers never slept on acquiring the latest technology. In October of 1985, they purchased a Sony Portable Compact Disc Player for the current price of an iPod classic: $249.

I’m never quite sure if other people like unabashed power pop as much as I do. This whole record is a perfect example. Also this.

Title: Dialing Halifax Artist: Ross Richardson 0 plays

I’ve been floating this idea in my head for yonks and finally am getting it to air. It’s an hour-long feature on new music from Halifax, Canada. There is an absolute killer scene in this small town on the eastern edge of Canada, and I’m super keen to introduce it to Triple R’s Melbourne listeners.

One small city on the eastern edge of Canada is brimming with talented pop bands: Halifax, Nova Scotia. The Halifax sound is one of intricate math-rock guitar lines and the subversion of pop tropes – permeating across genres. What makes this city’s music scene thrive?

To find out, host Ross Richardson calls Aaron Levin of emerging independent music patron Weird Canada, Halifax college radio host Trevor Murphy, and Haligonian jangle-pop quartet Old and Weird.

Uncover the roots of the Halifax sound, the supportive ‘art-school’ creative culture, life on the ground for bands, and it’s context in the Canadian music scene. Plus some of the best new songs coming from this Atlantic outpost.

It airs Thursday July 11 at 7pm AEST, on Triple R 102.7FM and streamed live.
