Mode_Set_Clear_albumWhen Villainy was in OZ recently for their Alligator Skin tour, we were lucky enough to have the NZ boys drop in at Waffle Music.

In between tour stories, tales of playing alongside Offspring and Incubus and exploring their love of dumplings, Thom & Neill played a couple of stripped back but totally rocking acoustics.

wafflemusic-coverart-1400x1400Waffle Music is a brand new music podcast available on iTunes, hosted by Melbourne based radio presenter Andie Crook.

Each week, Andie is joined in the Waffle Music studio by one artist or band for an intimate chat – covering topics like the creative process, the benefits of social media, on-tour shenanigans and more.

The podcast provides a fantastic opportunity for musicians to step out from behind the microphone and connect with their fans (and new ones!) by sharing their own stories.

Being a platform for music discovery, guests are also invited to play an in-studio, two-song acoustic session as part of the interview.

Andie says, “my aim for Waffle Music is to showcase all types of music, especially Aussie stuff, and expose music lovers to new bands and artists. It also totally taps in to my own personal love of music. The Waffle Music podcast format means that I can chat to musicians in a long form way, so we can discuss more than what is sometimes possible in a brief ‘promo chat.’ This has lead to some fascinating and hilarious stories. I can’t wait to share them with everyone!”

Episodes 1-6 feature pop band Vaudeville Smash, Gustaf from Melbourne/US based rockers goodbyemotel, indie guys Pretty City, Melbourne’s Buchan, Brisbane’s Hey Geronimo and MC Momo from hip hop duo Diafrix. Upcoming guests include Hamish Anderson and Animal Hands…to name a few! Look up Waffle Music on iTunes to listen, or stream the shows at wafflenetwork.com.

Professional artists and bands with original music interested in appearing on Waffle Music can submit their details at wafflenetwork.com. Interviews are recorded in person in Melbourne, so artists will need to be local or touring at the time.

Andie Crook has been working on Melbourne radio for almost 7 years, formerly a radio presenter on Melbourne’s Nova, Fox FM & Triple M. She currently presents weekend shows on Mix 101.1. Andie is also currently watching her first ever baby bump get bigger, expecting her first child later this year…and dares anyone to tell her she can’t have that 3rd piece of chocolate cake!

Professional bands and artists with original music…

Waffle Music is about to launch!

It’s a dedicated, music-only podcast and you’re invited to be a part of it!

Each episode of Waffle Music features one band only. Yep, that means an episode all about you.

The aim for this show is to showcase all types of music (especially Aussie stuff!) and expose music lovers to new bands and artists. If you’re keen on some extra promotion, to connect with new and existing fans or if you have new music to launch, let us know.

Interested?

You’ll need to be in Melbourne, or touring at the time, so the interview can be recorded ‘in-person’ at a Melbourne recording studio. Also, be prepared to bring at least a guitar so you can treat listeners to an acoustic song or two that you’d like to promote.

I’m very excited to have already interviewed some awesome musicians and look forward to possibly chatting to you too.

Contact us via the band submission form.

Thanks,
Andie.

Have you heard episode 6 of The Feel Good Podcast? It’s called 4 Ways To Eat Well – Let’s Cook! Joey talks about how to eat well for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack time, and we both share a heap of our favourite recipes.

Check out the show notes for an outline of what we talk about and for our recipes. There’s also a media player there too – just hit the play button to listen to the podcast episode. Or of course you can look up The Feel Good Podcast on itunes and listen on the go.

During this episode I talk about the Sunset Blend Juice, a recipe that I discovered on http://jointhereboot.com. There is an amazing range of juicing ideas there. If you’re interested in juicing, Fat Sick And Nearly Dead is a really interesting documentary, and explains the story behind the jointhereboot.com website.

Above is a pic of the fun and flavour filled Sunset Blend Juice – one of my favourite juices to make! It’s so incredibly bright and pleasant tasting, you could almost forget that it’s actually good for you! The pic has no fancy Instagram filters on it or anything – cool, huh,

Want another great juicing ideas? Watch this video of Joey making her Summer Refresher Juice. Just 6 ingredients to make a nutritious juice in 6 minutes! Check it out to see how it’s done. It looks delicious.

If you have a juice recipe you’d like to tell us about, leave your name and your recipe (or a link to it!) in the comments below. We’d love to share it on a future episode of The Feel Good Podcast.

Thanks for stopping by!

Andie.
