The e.p. Show

tmw-s03e09-epshow-episode

The e.p. Show by Tune Me What? on Mixcloud

This show is a tribute to that fading cultural artefact, the CD E.P… its slimline jewel case and awkward cardboard insert is disappearing, a victim of the Internet age where bands easily distribute online via iTunes downloads and Spotify streaming.

However, for some bands, the humble e.p. represented some of their best work, and in the case of many South African bands, their only recorded output.

In this show, we feature:

  • Amersham
  • BLK JKS
  • Ethel My Love
  • The Led
  • Lithium
  • One Large Banana
  • Sons of Trout
  • Springbok Nude Girls
  • Van Der Want/Letcher
  • Wonderboom

We really appreciate your feedback. We’re always open to suggestions and even requests! If you’re a South African musician living or touring internationally, do let us know about your concerts, album releases or tours – we’d love to give you a punt on the show.

Birfday Show by Tune Me What? on Mixcloud

It was Leon’s birthday – the last “in his 40s” – so obviously Brett (two years behind) had to take the mickey (or twist the knife, depending on how you look at it) with a playlist of songs about getting long in the tooth… and some hard party tracks thrown in!

So, you know what they say – let’s party!! (Of course, these days this means throwing in some mellow jazz as well so we can all catch our breath…)

 In this episode we future the music of:

  • Amersham
  • The Bats
  • Bheki Mseleku
  • Dirty Skirts
  • Falling Mirror
  • Harari
  • Hip Hop Pantsula
  • Hugh Masekela
  • Motswafrika
  • Qcumba Zoo
  • Wild Youth

We also played a new track by Matthew v.d. Want which is for sale on Bandcamp for $2 and all the proceeds are going towards a fundraiser for a musician who needs urgent medical care. Check out Matthew’s BANDCAMP page for details.
