Jillian Raye of 3rd Secret

Today we start off with the 80s garage and college circuit legends Fuzztones who have a new album. Then we check out 3rd Secret, which is really a collaboration between Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic and Jillian Raye who already collaborated on two albums as Giants In The Trees. From London, we check out Japanese Television and from Japan we check out Dhidalah. Satellites is a very interesting concept from Israel that pays a homage to the great Anatolian rock music from the 70s. Helicon from Glasgow are back with the new EP and we also check out a new track from Clara Engel over in Toronto.
