This week’s PBS Feature Album is the self-titled debut album by Meanjin/Brisbane duo Yirinda. The band combine ancient Aboriginal language with sublime modern production. Fred Leone and Samuel Pankhurst’s music invokes thousands of generations of story and culture, while emerging as something entirely new. 

Yirinda was recorded in Brisbane by Samuel, then mixed in London by Jake Miller (Björk, Arca, Yves Tumor) and mastered at Abbey Road by Alex Wharton (The Beatles, My Bloody Valentine). The album sets Fred’s powerful vocals against striking experimental soundscapes, rich with strings, horns, double bass, synthesizer, piano and percussion. The result is otherworldly, a timeless art music outside Western convention. 

Tune in all this week to hear tracks from Yirinda, and PBS Members have the chance to win a copy of the album on vinyl, simply email your name and membership number to  before midnight Sunday March 3. Please note vinyl giveaways must be picked up from the station in Collingwood.
