Febuary 2007 podcast

Download this month’s podcast (20Mb). It contains all this good stuff…

EnergyApples in In Stereo (from the new album New Magnetic Wonder)

I’ve been listening this album regularly since I bought it. It’s fantastic indiepop and I know I’ll be sick of it in a few months time, but for now, I love it.

Suffer For FashionOf Montreal (from the new album Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?)

I picked up on this from Pitchforkmedia, and it’s just the kind of thing which they love – quirky, well produced and dense. Another of my albums of the year.

River EuphratesThe Pixies (from the old album Surfer Rosa)

This is from the the Pixies first album (I think). They are figuring out their proto-grunge sound on this album which sounds rougher than, say, Doolittle, but this is a catchy tune.

Party PitThe Hold Steady (from the new album Boys And Girls In America)

I think of this band as a cross between Counting Crows and Bruce Springsteen. This song has a serious Boss influence at the start then morphs into something more like AC/DC.

Hold On, Hold OnNeko Case (from the newish album Fox Confessor Brings the Flood)

This album one was popular in the Critic’s best-of lists last year. It’s generally too far on the Country end of Americana for me. This is my favourite song from the album.

Diamond Heart – Narissa Nadler (from somewhere, I know not where – use Google to find out)

I know nothing about this artist. I found the song on a magazine CD, and really like it.

The RideJoan As Police Woman (from the new album Real Life)

Katie’s song of the year so far. She sings with Antony and the Jonsons.

The PioneersTuung

One of Tuung’s singles from I think last year. A good argument for small record labels.

After AllMojave 3 (from Ask Me Tomorrow)

My friend Jane loves Mojave 3, so I thought I’d give them a try. Believe it or not, this is one of this is one of the more upbeat songs on the album.
