Pod on the Couch: New releases and cyclone warnings

The Spinoff and Spark proudly present Pod On The Couch, a weekly podcast exploring music and the people that make it. This episode: Henry Oliver plays some new releases to a bunch of people hanging around The Spinoff offices to see what they think.

Instead of just sitting around the Spinoff offices waiting for the Cyclone Cook to hit, music editor Henry Oliver gathers together some friends, family and workers of the Spinoff – namely José Barbosa, Leonie Hayden, Alex Casey, Calum Henderson, Don Rowe and Toby Manhire – to be surprised by a bunch of new music they may not have heard before. Hilarity, disorganisation, and talking over each other ensues.
