In August 2012 New Weird Australia ended its long-running weekly radio show on Sydney's FBi Radio, a station whose website takes an average of three seconds to inspire urban envy. Though I'm sure the crew will be taking many heartfelt memories away with them and "friendships for a lifetime", etc, the occasion of the two hour psych-show's winding down was publicly marked last week with the issuance of Broadcast Four, an eccentric and thoughtful compilation carved from "a selection of exclusive in-studio recordings [from] the final months of the show, which wound up in August 2012. It includes new material from Abortifacient, Cycle 400, Emily Grantham, Gold Model, Haunts, Kevin Purdy, Nadir, Oscar key Sung, Pollen Trio, Seaworthy, Secret Birds, Shisd, The Sydney Radio Orchestra, Thomas William vs Scissor Lock, Whale + Cheng and Yolke." I'll say incidentally, in case the word interested you as well; an abortifacient induces abortion.
