Premiere: New Single I Cant Take It from Your Girl Pho FBi Radio

Perth native Your Girl Pho (aka Phoebe Gunson) channels the minimal souljazz and maximal sass of Jill Scott and Erykah Badu on new track I Cant Take It.

With a dry Stevie Wonder tom fill to bring us in, some p-funk bass sizzle, Sade synth pads and a g-funk e.p. groove underpinning it all, the production plays like a love letter to funk, soul + rnb through the ages. And the defiant sick of your s**t-style lyrical flavour clearly draws from the fem rnb tradition. But the songs undeniable focus is YGPs raw nu-soul vocal the power, attitude and closeness of her voice demand attention, and the kinks and imperfections in her delivery keep the song from sounding overly polished. Oh yeah, and SPOILER ALERT: theres a slinky sax attack in there too which ICYMI is cool again  

After a STAKT first half of the year which included Falls and Groovin the Moo slots, and supports for Post Malone, The Avalanches and Lady Leshurr, Your Girl Pho is gearing up for an end-of-year single tour which will include plenty of Aus dates and a slot at Singapores Music Matters Festival.

I Cant Take It is out on all platforms on Wednesday 8 August, but you can hear it right here, first.

Work Experience at Eastside Radio 89.7 Eastside FM

My name is Phoenix Hart and I will be undergoing work experience at Eastside Radio from the 6th to 10th of August. I am a Year 10 student and music has always been my passion. I came to Eastside because I grew up listening to various radio stations and am considering pursuing it as a career. Im extremely excited to learn the ins and outs of what goes on behind the scenes of a radio station and the way radio shows are recorded and broadcasted.

Music I am Interested In

My music taste is very diverse, especially when compared to other girls my age, who mostly listen to top 50 hits. Of course, I do enjoy some of these tracks from time to time, but I also listen to older or less popular artists, such as Louis Armstrong, The Beatles and Rebecca Sugar to name a few.

I also make my own music and love jamming out with my instruments. I have been playing multiple instruments since I was in kindergarten, when my mum took me to my first piano lesson. After about a year of learning, I decided to drop it, but in Year 3 I returned to classical music and began to learn the flute. I absolutely loved it and am still playing it to this day. 

Ive taught myself multiple other instruments since learning the flute, including bass, acoustic and electric guitars, ukulele, drums, violin and more. Ive also revived my passion for piano and am slowly learning to play it again. Playing this m...

Former Olympian Gearoid Towey on Crossing the Line, Tuesday 7 August 89.7 Eastside FM

Gearoid Towey Eastside

CTL founder Gearoid Towey rowing for Ireland.

 

Something a little different for the show this week: weve flipped the format and put usual host GT in the hot seat! Gearoid Towey needs no real introduction. A three-time Olympian, he rowed for Ireland at the Sydney, Athens and Beijing Games. Hes also a rowing World Champion, winning golds at the 1996 U23 World Championships and the 2001 Lucerne World Championships, as well as bronzes in 1999, 2003 and 2006.

In 2005, Gearoid and his rowing partner Ciaran Lewis attempted to cross the Atlantic in a 23-ft rowing boat. After 40 days at sea and only 1440 km from landfall, their boat was pitch poled by a 10-meter wave, leaving the men to be rescued by a supertanker in the middle of a force 9 storm.

Gearoid retired from rowing after the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, and experienced firsthand the difficulties of athlete transition. Realising more needed to be done to assist athletes post-retirement, he established athlete mental health and transition not-for-profit Crossing the Line.

CTL communications manager Lorna Hankin chats to GT about his love of rowing growing up in Ireland, his near-death experience in the Atlantic and how Crossing the Line is helping athletes today.

Independent Artist of the Week: Nooky FBi Radio

Photo by Gabe Gasparinatos

Australia has a rich black history but Nooky is a part of the local hip hop contingent getting us ready for a black future.

Originally hailing from Nowra, Yuin Nation man Nooky has called Sydney home for the better part of the past decade. During that time, hes received some pretty decent support from the local Aboriginal hip hop community he signed to Bad Apples Music, joined A.B. Original and his Bad Apples crew on stages and bills across the country and, importantly, made sure to give back and pass on the opportunities afforded to him.

If you couldnt already tell, Nookys approach is considered hes taken the time to develop his artistry and focus on powerfully and deliberately delivering messages about his people and culture, taking inspiration from iconic Indigenous activists and elders like Charlie Perkins and Guboo Ted Thomas.

Black Future, his proud, energetic trap anthem was released for NAIDOC week and is a lasting imprint from this years huge celebrations. Addressing what First Nations people have achieved and are achieving, Nooky shines a light on an optimistic and exciting future, wearing Australia Has A Black Future proudly on his front (literally, on a tee that hes made to accompany the track) and on his sleeve (metaphorical).

With a debut album on the horizon and a spot at Big Sound, Nowras devon and chip sandwich connoisseur will be propelling that black excellence further in no time.
