Cycles Per Second 07/13/22: Bandcamp, etc. Links

This week’s show features Antipodean pleasures, from delicate and spacious New Zealand sounds (Motte, Emily Fairlight/The Shifting Sands) to a 1-2 punch of Aussie punk (Mini Skirt, split system). And local Seattle finds, from newly re-released, vintage post-punk (Student Nurse) to swooping and swerving new pop (Salt Lick). Plus pure pop from SF to Glasgow, and new music from veterans of 80s Boston faves Big Dipper.

Free Zines

Relive the 90s indie music scene through the interviews, reviews and musings captured in the pages of my zine, Nonstop Diatribe.

Both are being made available in digital form as free downloads. But if you’re a fan of tangible media (and want to admire the risograph-printed cover in your very own hands), print copies of issue #2 are also available to order.

Nonstop Diatribe #1

Now available in digital form for the first time: this free download of the debut issue of Nonstop Diatribe, originally published in 1992. Straight from the teenage mind of Jen Matson, this issue features:

  • Interviews with:

  • A Go-Betweens pictorial discography

  • A rather heated Boston vs. New York face-off

  • Guest columns and comics

  • ...and the requisite roundup of record reviews
