Impressions - Tenderlonious & Jaubi

Brand new music from Tenderlonious, Mildlife and Dreems seasoned with some recent Australian releases: ambient, percussion, flute, jazz and lounge-room electronica.

This week’s playlist walks us through every room in the house.
Door’s open.



“Repetition is not repetition. The same action makes you feel something completely different by the end.”

Cafe Müller by Pina Bausch (1978). Hauntingly simple and beautiful.



Dance time.


Feeling like Winter is rolling in all too soon? Still not really wanting to leave the warm, safe den of one's living room? Well, Melbourne legend Claudia Sangiorgi Dalimore has us all covered. Get that booty moving 3 times a week with her live-streaming dance classes 'filled with sexy shoulders, hula hips, fancy foot rhythms, pops, shakes & grinds.' Nonna may or may not be there.

Dance classes unlike any other. Get involved.

“‘Culture’ and ‘culture’ mean two different things to a biologist and an anthropologist, but in fermentation, they overlap completely.”

David Zilber, director of the fermentation lab at Noma, announced on Monday that he’ll be leaving the restaurant for good. Zilber has been instrumental in flying the flag for ferments so we thought we’d share this podcast where he asks: is fermentation the ultimate expression of culture?

Extra bits.


A good book on fermentation:

Foundation of Fermentation: The Noma Guide to Fermentation by David Zilber and Rene Redzepi 


A good many hours of masterful live music:

Each and every Thursday night for the foreseeable future the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra will be broadcasting some special concerts from their archives.
Nice music to have on while you stir your winter soup.


A good artist:
