One of my favorite indie dance bands right now is called RÜFÜS or RÜFÜS DU SOL. The name of the band depends on where you live. I hung out with the three Aussies (Tyrone Lindqvist, Jon George and James Hunt) who make up RÜFÜS / RÜFÜS DU SOL in a dark alley behind the venue while they waited for opening act and Aussie pals Hermitude to finish.
What’s the deal with the two band names? What strange connection does RÜFÜS DU SOL have to singer Rufus Wainwright? Which RÜFÜS DU SOL track was born one night trying to make something that sounded like Booka Shade and Trentemøller? Where was the craziest place the boys have partied in Berlin? Which band member sleepwalks? What advice do the boys have for my interview style? Which member of the band owes everyone drinks? Listen to find out.
Tracks played on the show…
1) RÜFÜS DU SOL, Atlas (2013) “Desert Night”
2) RÜFÜS DU SOL, Atlas (2013) “Modest Life” (mp3)
3) RÜFÜS DU SOL, RÜFÜS EP (2011) “We Left”

As soon as I sat down in the van, Kim Churchill offered me a mint and we both slurped away watching the rain outside. Australia’s favorite one-man singer-songwriter was back in Canada to tour his latest record Silence/Win. This time, he’s found himself at a new level of confidence about what he does.
What did busking teach Kim about a career in music? Which new song was inspired by a music festival experience? What is on Kim‘s “gratitude list?” Which friend would play an April Fool’s joke on Kim? Which alcoholic beverage makes Kim drowsy? You’ll have to listen to find out all these answers and more!
