Erk FM: Australia 388 – Bigsound 2013 Part 4 (Studio Tracks)

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 388. This episode was in the Erk FM studio featuring artists Erk sure live at Bigsound 2013. Bigsound 2013 was a conference/showcase in Brisbane in mid September. Bringing together a range of musicians & music industry people from Australia and beyond), it was an exciting conference for Erk FM. It was a great way to meet people that I have only spoken to online and/or heard online via this podcast. There were days of conference sessions that I did not attend as well as 2 nights of live music across 12 venues in Fortitude Valley.

  As you might be able to imagine, I was in podcasting & music heaven. However, I was (obviously) unable to cover the entire event because there's only so much one person (me!) can do.

  A very big thank you to Stephen, Andrew & Sarah from SGC Media for arranging these interviews & my media accreditation. Interviews from the event can be heard on Erk FM: Australia episode 382.

  There are episodes recorded live on location featuring live tracks (Erk FM: International 383 & Erk FM: Australia 384, 386) as well as studio tracks (Erk FM: International episode 385 & Erk FM: Australia 390)....

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: Metal Monday episode 106. This episode marks 2 years of Erk FM: Metal Monday after the show started in October 2011.

    As of this episode, Erk has played 590 bands on Erk FM: Metal Monday according the artist link section. Many of them have been played on more than one occasion. Thank you to all the bands, all of the PR agencies, promoters, venues, fellow metal podcasters/media & listeners for their support over the last 2 years.

Erk FM: International 381 – Preparing For A Canadian Blast!

Welcome to episode 381 of Erk FM: International. Last week, Erk went to Bigsound 2013 in Brisbane & he was surprised to see a lot of Canadians there.

Erk FM: Australia 380 – On Location From Helen Perris’ Palace In Suburbia

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 380. On this episode, Erk ventures from one part of western Sydney to another to meet singer, songwriter, pianist, music teacher & mother, Helen Perris. During the wide ranging interview, we talk about music, teaching of music, Helen's previous EP Flesh, her new EP that is (at the time of recording) being crowd funded and a lot more.       Erk is very used to recording interviews on location with the associated distractions and noise but having an interviewee with baby in attendance was very interesting. Erk would like to stress that no babies (including the baby that you will hear often on this episode, affectionately known as Mr 0 - for the moment at least - on social media) were harmed during the recording of this interview. Included on this episode are a couple of tracks from the Flesh EP & a live recording of Palace In Suburbia as recorded by Erk at The Newsagency in 2012. 

Erk FM: International 379 – Swedway Norden

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 379. On an episode of Erk FM: Metal Monday, Erk found metal from the Nordic region of Europe. Finding tracks from Sweden & Norway (often in part referred to as part of Scandinavia), that episode reflected the people of the area. So on this episode, Erk thought he would try the same experiment but with music that is not metal.

Erk FM: Australia 378 – Holding Erk For Electronica

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 378. A few days away from heading to Bigsound 2013, Erk decided to go for a style of music that he normally does not feature a lot of on Erk FM: Australia. As he wrote on Twitter, "I'm listening to electronica. Somebody hold me..."

  In reality, Erk loves hard rock & metal. He has had a lot to do with people in the indie music scene & what is often called the singer/songwriter genre. Electronica is not a genre that Erk listens to a lot, not one he exposes the Erk FM listeners to a lot but there is talent out there & a lot of people (different people to Erk, obviously), who love electronica music. And for Erk, it does make a nice change.

  On this episode, Erk features the work of NSW electronica producer Dean Sutton. While the tracks are produced by the same person, they do not sound the same. They use differing techniques & differing vocals & samples.   All music supplied by AirPlay Direct.   Song list (all times approximate):

  • 05:12 - Cartagena - Dean Sutton (AirPlay Direct)

  Since becoming a part of the Sydney underground metal scene in October 2010 & starting Erk FM: Metal Monday in October 2011, it has been a real lot of fun that has seen me go all over the world! I have met so many nice people, I have heard so...

Erk FM: Australia 374 – The Festival Of Erk

by Erk

Welcome to episode 374 of Erk FM: Australia. The Festival of Erk (Erk celebrating another year of living) continues! While he might be in Melbourne (arguably the live music capital of Australia), the music does not stop here on Erk FM: Australia. There's a couple of announcements & cracking tunes. The biggest announcement is that Erk will be at Bigsound 2013 in Brisbane in September which will be an excellent showcase of Australian bands.

Erk FM: International 373 – The Festival Of Erk

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: International 373. When this episode is released, Erk is celebrating the week long Festival Of Erk - that's right, another birthday. Spending his birthday week in Melbourne, Erk decided to ensure (as usual) that you don't miss out on an episode because Erk is traveling. There's a good range of locations & styles to listen to this week! And with the submissions from Deuce, I always know that the band will have a good bio for me to tell you, the listener, about the band.

Erk FM: Metal Monday 99 – Diving Into The Metal Barrel Of Jamendo

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: Metal Monday episode 99. One week to go before the big episode 100! This week, Erk goes for another dive into the barrel that is labelled as metal on Jamendo. Taken from the metal radio live stream, let's see what happens? Is this the ultimate in a mixed metal sampler which is totally random? Overall, the episode went very well in terms of the stream being pretty much metal all the way through the episode. There were no songs that Erk felt that he needed to skip - and yes, instrumental fans, there's a couple of instrumentals in there for you!

Erk FM: Metal Monday 98 – Die Apolkalyptischenwhoian What-er? Are They From Melbourne?

by Erk

Welcome to episode 98 of Erk FM: Metal Monday.  It looks like Erk isn't the only one who has no idea how to pronounce Die Apolkalyptischen Reiter's name. Ro from Dark Compass has struggled with it as has Shawno from No Market. On last week's episode, Shawno really liked the arrangement between a track from Die Apolkalyptischen Reiter & how it flowed into a Doro track. There's another play of a certain song or two for a headbanging mother that Erk knows. In addition, Erk is preparing to head to Melbourne for a week of rest & relaxation so there are a selection of tunes from Melbourne based metal bands.

Erk FM: Australia 368 – In Case Of Emergency, Fronz Arp!

by Erk

Welcome to episode 368 of Erk FM: Australia. This week's episode features an old friend of the podcast, Fronz Arp. Originally from Brisbane, he called Sydney home for a while before returning home. Now he is on a big adventure calling New York City home for the moment, having the time of his life (I hope!) performing, seeing other performers & meeting a lot of people. During the week, Fronz sent me a link to some new material which is the backbone of a free to download Fronz Arp sampler. FREE FRONZ!

  If all of this Fronz isn't enough, Erk plays some tracks from Fronz Arp Is A Crooked Little Orchestra.

Erk FM: International 367 – Sending A Message To Studio B

This week's keyword will become plainly obvious. There's not a lot of talking but a lot of music this week!

Erk FM: Australia 366 – By Your Side At The Newsagency!

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 366. Last weekend, Erk had the pleasure of being in a very tightly packed inner western Sydney venue The Newsagency for Alison Avron's EP launch as discussed on Erk FM: Australia episode 362. It was a sold out event with both audience members & performers having a great time. The night was filled with zany lyrics, humour & lots of laughter. It was certainly the sort of night Erk needed!

    The first artist on this episode is Imogen Bel, Originally from Newcastle, Imogen is now calling Sydney home. Her first Sydney gig was actually at The Newsagency.  Following Imogen on the episode is Helen Perris. Erk last saw Helen at the same venue when she was heavily pregnant but she's back with baby in tow & working towards a new EP.  Finally, the episode will feature the lady of the episode, Alison Avron (of course!). Each lady brings something to the table but also harmonise together so well!

  On the night, Imogen & Helen did backing vocals for Alison. There will be a couple of live tracks to end the episode.

Erk FM: International 365 – Big E Showcasing The World 24/7!

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 365. It's funny sometimes how different episode numbers & dates of episode release mean something to Erk but probably not the average listener.  There's artists from Sweden, Ukraine, the UK, Peru, Germany & Italy on this week's episode.

Erk FM: Australia 364 – Simply Symphonic!

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: Australia episode 364. On this episode, Erk gets a little symphonic! Based on listening to an artist on Erk FM: Metal Monday, Erk found that 2 Australian bands that he has played would sound very good together on an episode. Now based in the same city (Brisbane, aka Brisvegas), Alpine Fault & Awaken Solace have metal leanings but are very accessible for those who don't like the growly growly metal.

Erk FM: International 363 – Raiding The Insomnia Music Library

by Erk

Welcome to Erk FM: International episode 363. On this episode, Erk raids the music library of Insomnia Radio. That's ok because Erk hosts Insomnia Radio: Australia, right? Right? The Insomnia Radio family of podcasts features regional music shows (including Erk's Australian show) as well as a daily dose of music. The IR: Daily Dose is a daily MP3 download which you can subscribe to for free. If there is an active regional show, the track is also made available to that show. So far, well over 1000 consecutive Daily Doses have been published. So somewhat cheekily, Erk has borrowed some of the latest submissions.

  All music supplied by Insomnia Radio.   Song list (all times approximate):

Erk FM: Metal Monday 94 – Revisiting The Breed

by Erk

There's lots of metal from Australia & New Zealand on this episode continuing on from last week - there's a big difference between the Erk FM: Metal Monday studio & where the last episode was recorded on the Gold Coast!
