12 August 2014

Unceremoniously bumped for pre-season football last week, this week's show is what I'd have played last week had Town not had Premier League opposition. Remember last week? Town even had a manager back then. Halcyon days, those... Anyway, back to it.

The Horrors - In And Out Of Sight
Great opener to any show. Off their album Luminous which came out in May, that's the latest single. They're a band I feel I probably ought not to like, but every now and then they put out something really good like this. It's almost infuriating.

Heavyball - Another Country
Love these to bits. This is their latest. When we getting an LP, fellers?

Honeyblood - Super Rat
Off the album Honeyblood, that's glorious. They're a two-piece from Glasgow.

Cover Version Corner
Marvin Gaye/Gil Scott Heron - Inner City Blues
Released ten years apart, but no less relevant in 1981 when Gil Scott Heron recorded it as it was in 1971. Suppose it's no less relevant now as well, another 33 years on.

Kindred Shins - The Smoker Never Quits
From last year's Yes To Rioting Notoriety, that's some splendid bluesy rock.

Naomi Punk - Television Man
Looking way into the future now. The album this is off, also called Television Man, isn't out until October. Wishing my life away...

Even As We Speak - Falling Down The Stairs
Going back a bit with this one, to 1993. From Sydney, this came out on an LP called Feral Pop Frenzy.

Kult Country - Trembling Moon
These are from Manchester. I missed this when it came out in June. Happy to have it on my radar now.

Owl John - Red Hand
Based in Mull and LA it says here, which I suppose is nice work if you can get it. Really like that though. Not sure what it reminds me of.

Pow! - 66
I know pretty much nothing about these, just that that's off an album called Hi-Tech Boom which came out in July and that I like it.

One Degree of Separation
Bedlam - Harvest Moon
Harry Nilsson - Coconut
Supreme silliness from Harry Nilsson, off the 1971 album Nilsson Schmilsson. Before that, Cozy Powell and Bedlam from their self-titled 1973 long player. The link? Reservoir Dogs.

Teleman - Skeleton Dance
This is the latest release from the critically-acclaimed album Breakfast, which is ace. A complete joy.

Grimes ft. Blood Diamond - Go
A bit more commercial than her previous stuff, moreso than what got me interested in the first place anyway, but not completely terrible.

Eat Lights, Become Lights - Velocet Vir Nesat
Still not sure if that's a decent name for a band or not. Still, pretty decent stuff. From the album Into Forever which came out in May.

All that in a combination of YouTube and Soundcloud below:

Should be back next week as normal.
