2 August 2016

Hope you all had a good Yorkshire Day. Loads of good stuff today, so let's get to it.

Club Soda - Breathe Relief
Available now as a pay-what-you-like download. They're from Oxford. Bit good innit.

Sterling Roswell - Atom Brain Monster-Rock!
Ex of the Spacemen 3, this is the latest prog-ish 7".

La Forme - East German Dance Lesson
From South Wales, albeit with French heritage, this is ace.

Featured album: Super Furry Animals - Fuzzy Logic
God! Show Me Magic
Something 4 The Weekend
Their 1996 debut LP was really something special. It made it to number 23 in the album charts and in 2004, Q ranked it at 42 in their list of the best British albums of all time. And it's still a belter.

Fold - Something Gives
This might be an exclusive. Seth of the band sent me a message after I retweeted his plug for the forthcoming second album. This track is their response to the sociopolitical escalations on both sides of the Atlantic. This might be the first time this has ever been played on radio.

Virginia Wing - Grapefruit
Their hotly anticipated second LP, Forward Constant Motion, is due later in the year. This represents a taster.

Hideous Towns - Don't Forget
From Melbourne is Australia, these are a proper post-punk outfit. This is off a double-A side single and there's an album due later in the year.

L.A. Salami - I Wear This Because Life Is War
Lookman Adekunle Salami is a hell of a name and this is off his debut album Dancing With Bad Grammar which is out in three weeks.

Descendents - Victim Of Me
Californian punks return from a 12-year gap with the LP Hypercaffium Spazzinate.

Imarhan - Imarhan
Algerian Tuareg music from the debut album which is also called Imarhan. Blooming marvellous.

Featured album: Super Furry Animals - Fuzzy Logic
Bad Behaviour
Another track from Fuzzy Logic. It really was such a breath of fresh air when it landed.

Luke Wright - The Chains feat Lora Stimson
Wright is one of my favourite poets and something of an inspiration for me. This poem is called On Revisiting John Betjeman's Grave and comes alive with electronic backing and Lora Stimson's ethereal vocals.

Spray - It's The Night Of The Long Knives, Charlie Brown
A couple of ex Cuban Boys with a dance-your-arse-off track. This is off Enforced Fun which came out in April.

Solar Bears - Separate From The Ark (Andrew Weatherall remix 1)
The original track appeared on Advancement earlier this year and now Andrew Weatherall has woven some of his magic over it. Bloody good do.

Kenny Smith - Oh God (Good Livers rework)
Good Livers is Gary Marsden from Nottingham. This is available as a free download.

Here's your Youtube:

and Soundcloud:

apart from the Fold track which is under wraps for a bit yet.

And we'll see what next week throws up.
