18 October 2016

Evening all.

Sleaford Mods - I Can Tell
New track from the TCR EP. The voice of austerity/Brexit Britain.

Skyjelly - Acosta
Another track from the Bostonians' album Blank Panthers which is damnably good. A fabulous cacophony.

Kobadelta - You Don't Need To Ask...
Newcastle now and a track that accompanied the single Bathsheba which we've played before.

Featured album: The Delgados - Domestiques
Under Canvas Under Wraps
Falling And Landing
With a name taken from cycling champion Pedro Delgado, the debut album from The Delgados also had a cycling theme and launched the Motherwell four-piece to indie stardom. Proper indie too, as this and most of their output went out on their own Chemikal Underground label which later featured Arab Strap and Mogwai, among others. A lot like Teenage Fanclub in their delivery and lyrics, and since when was that a bad thing?

This Becomes Us - Undervalue Love ft. Guy McKnight
Another track from the forthcoming LP from Future Of The Left bassist Julia Ruzicka and guests. Can not wait.

Sweet Benfica - Strange Veil
To the Welsh mountains now and a track which came out in May but somehow passed me by. Love these dudes.

Steve Ignorant with Paranoid Visions - Join The Dots
Something from a while back, 2013 to be precise. The Crass singer teamed up with the Dublin punk rockers on an LP called When...? which harks back to oi and all that.

Young Sierra - The Lights
A young Mancunian trio of pure pop merchants. This is the title track from an EP of the same name out in a week and a bit.

The Old Pink House - So Bad
Don't know a lot about these and googling gives you a load of restaurant reviews. Pop. Unadulterated pop.

The Landseers - Weatherman
The Sweet Benfica lads return with house favourites Nat Lyon and Ash Cooke of Pulco in their Landseers supergroup form. The single came out on October 10.

Featured album: The Delgados -
Big Business In Europe
A topical title from the debut LP from The Delgados.

Alone - Citizen Of Nowhere
Again, topical. From producer James Reichelt who specialises in glorious 8-bit sounds.

Ital & Halal - From The Brink (Aurora Halal version)
New York electronica, off an album called Tower B which came out last month.

Big Lee Dowell - What I Done Wrong (Cobbymix)
And finally, Hull producer Steve Cobby weaves his magic on a '70s soul rarity from Buffalo singer Lee Dowell and The Cannonballs for track of the year so far.

Here's that on Youtube:
