11:05 Music with Grant Smithies

Grant Smithies risks terminal genre confusion this week as he ponders fresh releases from local hero Lawrence Arabia, Ohio art-punks Pere Ubu and Long Island hip hop trio De La Soul.

Artist: Lawrence Arabia

Song: Brain Gym

Comp: James Milne

Album: Absolute Truth

Label: Flying Nun

Broadcast Time: 2’47”


Artist: Lawrence Arabia

Song: I Waste My Time

Comp: James Milne

Album: Absolute Truth

Label: Flying Nun

Broadcast Time: 3’34”


Recorded in an unlikely man-cave under a plastics factory in Lower Hutt, this is the fourth solo album from James Milne a.k.a. Lawrence Arabia, and perhaps his best. Full of astute reflections of love, as written by a man who’d just had his first child.

Artist: Pere Ubu

Song: 49 Guitars and One Girl

Comp: David Thomas

Album: New Picnic Time

Label: Crysalis/ Fire Records

Broadcast Time: 2’54”

Led by eccentric singer David Thomas, Cleveland, Ohio band Pere Ubu could often sound downright psychotic. Not everyone will want to invest in the band’s new four LP box set Architecture Of Language 1979- 1982, but those who do will be in for a thrill…

Artist: De La Soul

Song: Pain (feat. Snoop Dogg)

Comp: De La Soul

Album: And the Anonymous Nobody

Label: AOI/ Kobalt/ Rhythmethod

Broadcast Time: 4’39”

Record companies always bang on about albums being “hotly anticipated” but for once, it really is true with this, the eighth studio album from pioneering Long Island hip hop trio De La Soul. De La Soul and The Anonymous Nobody is their first album in 11 long years- crowdfunded on their own label, and involving 300 hours of live recordings sampled down to make the tracks. This is the first single.
