Revered Melbourne blues institution Checkerboard Lounge return with the release of their new album Roller Coaster. Co-produced by the band and Jeff Lang at his studio The Enclave, Roller Coaster follows their multi-award winning and blues-chart topping album Sun Sessions which was one of Rhythms magazine's Top 10 Albums of the Year, and which spent more than a year on the Australian Blues & Roots Airplay chart, including multiple months at #1.   

Listen back to Roots of Rhythm with Helen Jennings and hear Checkerboard Lounge perform a special Studio 5 Live session.

PBS thanks the Helen Macpherson Smith Trust for funding assistance to build and fit out Studio 5.
