26 July 2016

Tuesday, 7pm, so it must be time for.... this

The Boston Shakers - Long Hard Night
With members from France and the USA, but now based in Liverpool, this is an interesting melange of styles and genres.

The Crookes - World Is Waiting
Long-time favourites on this show from Sheffield. Off their album Lucky Ones which came out in January.

All Is Worth - Early Birdy
Alt-folk, I suppose, from Oxford. Different.

Featured album: Echo And The Bunnymen - Porcupine
The Cutter
Heads Will Roll
Their third album, it got some bad reviews initially. But it still went to number 2 in the album charts and is quintessential Echo. It was originally rejected by their label, but having done some work on strings with L Shankar and rerecorded, it passed muster. Ian McCulloch wasn't a fan of it either, but what would he know?

Repo Man - Let's See The Sun Sink With Fatigue
Noise and words from Bristol. Unusual stuff from the LP Minesweeper which is out now.

The Black Sheep Frederick Dickens - Shrines
Here's interesting. Darlingtonians David Saunders and Rob Irish make up the act which is described as "a musical concept project narrating the life of Frederick Dickens, Charles’ younger brother" who, unlike Charles, was a boozy, womanising gambler who was shunned by his family and descended into poverty and addiction. So there.

Paul Draper - Feeling My Heart Run Slow
Remember Mansun? They had some decent records. Lead singer Paul Draper goes solo 13 years after Mansun folded and his debut release is the EP 'EP1'.

Kingsley Chapman and The Murder - Fevers
Another one from the Middlesbrough troubadours. Bloody love 'em.

Alone - It Will Take Twenty Years
More Welsh 8-bit DIY dance music from Alone. Always interesting.

Featured album: Echo And The Bunnymen - Porcupine
The Back Of Love
Track 2 and the first single from the LP. It's one of those I loved from the minute I heard it.

Mr Sterile Assembly - 100% Hillary
This is off their fifth LP, It's All Over, and how they've passed me by until now I don't know. Outsider noise-punk experimental rock band from Wellington, New Zealand. Sounds right up my street and what do you know - it's incredible.

Gabriel Bruce - Freedom
A delayed follow-up to his debut album as a solo artist, this is off Come All Sufferers. Delayed after an industrial accident crushed his fingers, but they were saved. It came out at Easter and it's "about the apocalypse" says the artist.

Psychic Ills - I Don't Mind feat. Hope Sandoval
Brooklyn experimental duo with assistance from Mazzy Star singer Sandoval. Off the new album Inner Journey Out.

Applescal - Harmony Two
Pascal Terstappen's latest complete and utter banger. Out now on Atomnation.
