Play

Our guest for Episode 32 is Annemarie Duff of New Zealand’s T. G. Shand and Melbourne, Australia’s Miniatures. As you’ll hear, we had a wonderful time discussing her projects and our shared love of shoegaze.

Annemarie was kind enough to go above and beyond the request for a handful of her favorite songs to supplement the episode and instead programmed (with the exception of her own song that opens the episode, which was our pick) this entire extended episode of some of her favorite tracks, broken up by the two countries her bands represent. Scroll below this episode’s playlist for even more from Annamarie.

THE BIG THREE OH!

Yes, we know we’re the sweethearts of the the “wildly consistent output” genre of the America’s exploding Brit-Pop and Shoegaze podcast scene – but for this Jake Ryan curated episode (and probably at least one more episode in the future) the focus shifts somewhat (not entirely) below the globe’s belt buckle and onto Australia. Now, one thing I want to make absolutely clear…. there is no “down under” – it could be “up there” since there’s no top or bottom of space, ya got that? Ok. – moving along.

The physics behind St. Nick delivering presents to every boy and girl dictate that Santa would burst into flames. So, clearly, that calls Santa’s existence into serious doubt. I mean, it’s probably bullshit, right? But, then, he delivers the first Jake Ryan episode in like 9 months via the internet, and it’s a gift for the entire world, distributed on Christmas Eve. It’s plausible that this is a Christmas miracle. Suddenly, you’re like “Wait… he might just exist.” Right?

The response to the last episode was so fantastic that I couldn’t wait to get another one out. Odd how much of this came from posts in my Facebook feed – but, listen, there are no rules on the road to discovery. No matter how uncool the path is, as long as the destination is cool, it was valid. Anyway, you should leave us a review on Apple podcast. -Tyler
