Dr. Kirsten Zemke brings in a personal fave today, Do Wop. We're all being swooned by Gene Chandler's Duke of Earl, The Flamingos' I Only Have Eyes For You, and The Silhouettes' Get A Job. Beautiful.

This morning we're talking Math Rock, Dr. Kirsten Zemke's here to educate us and find a facet of music that will shock the listeners. Unfortunately for Kirsten, the listeners are very familiar with this genre, from Don Caballero's Fire Back About Your New Baby's Sex, to Giraffes? Giraffes!'s When The Catholic Girls Go Camping, the Nicotine Vampires Rule Supreme, and Hella's Biblical Violence.

Dr. Kirsten Zemke compares City Pop to Yacht Rock in it's catchy, uplifting style. Miki Matsubara's 真夜中のドア / Stay with me, Makoto Matushita's First Light, and Lucky Tapes' レイディ・ブルース. The songs say it all.

A genre that Dr. Kirsten Zemke describes as a blimp on the music radar, Romo, is polarising in the internet world but we're pretty fond of it here on Breakfast. Featuring in a small selection of recorded music on Sexus's Longing Without Belonging, David Devant and His Spirit Wife's Ginger, and Orlando's Just For a Second

Ahh, yes, electroswing, the polarising meld between EDM and swing dancing. For some, Dr. Kirsten Zemke, it just works and for others, Rachel, not so much. Featuring on Caravan Palace's Beatophone, Right Said Fred Let's Face the Music and Dance, The Swing Bot's Shake Like It's Coming On, you be the judge.

Ahh, NZ Country Music, there's a lot to be said for this genre. But Dr. Kirsten Zemke reckons the music speaks for itself, with Delaney Davidson & Barry Saunders' Stolen River, Pasty Rigger's Beautiful Lady, and Prince Tui Teka's Moe Mai E Hine.

Dr. Kirsten Zemke joins Mikey for some soul music, seems appropriate. With Curtis Mayfield's The Making of You, James Brown's Try Me, The Stylistic's People Make the World Go Round and a special number, from Mikey.

Dr. Kirsten Zemke is talking Grime this week, Tess is excited, Mikey's curious. Referencing Dizzee Rascal's I Luv U, Skepta ft. JME's That's Not Me and Stormzy's Know Me From, we dive deep into a genre that may even be compared to Punk. Wow.
