Heavy blues-psych band Child performed live to air on Pojama People on Tuesday July 4, 2023, alongside a chat with Chris Pearson.

Combining heavy blues, the tone and raw power of hard rock, the finesse of soul and a twist of 60s psychedelia, Child provides a visceral musical experience, and will brought this to the airwaves on the night.

When public support systems fall short, who ends up carrying the burden? The question courses through All Her Plans, the third album from local rock trio Cable Ties - this week's PBS Feature Album.

The band’s most sonically confident work yet, All Her Plans builds on Cable Ties trademarks: taut garage rhythms, wiry guitar lines, incandescent vocals. Bassist Nick Brown’s and drummer Shauna Boyle’s kraut-inflected grooves pulse behind the post-punk jag of Jenny McKechnie’s guitar.

This week's PBS Feature Album is The Winding Way, the third studio album by The Teskey Brothers. A seminal moment in the band’s illustrious catalogue, The Winding Way is both a testament to their artistic evolution and their most adventurous record to date.

This week's PBS Feature Album is Sus Dog, the tenth studio album by Clark. Released on his own burgeoning label Throttle Records, the record was mentored and executive produced by Thom Yorke, who sings and plays bass on the track ‘Medicine’.

Unlike previous LP Playground In A Lake, which turned impending ecological doom into beautiful 
dark art, on Sus Dog Clark often sounds uplifting, albeit in his own inimitable way.

This week's PBS Feature Album is RVG’s highly-anticipated third album, Brain Worms. All throughout the album, it’s apparent that this is a band in very fine form. Album opener ‘Common Ground’ sets the tone for what’s to come; a shiny, thrilling, punch of an album, with all the beloved RVG hallmarks. Romy Vager’s voice is unfiltered and commanding as ever when delivering her clever, not-quite-ironic lyrics. Here, though, those lyrics feel so much less resigned to yearning, and so much more defiant and joyous.
