We found out last night that our podcasts were shortlisted for The Irish Web Awards in Best Podcast category. That’s exciting! Luckily enough, we were due to record this anyway. Once again, we bring you the best new songs that have tickled our ears from Boston’s Passion Pit, Sheffield thanks to former 65 Days of Static member Feedle, London’s bonkers Max Tundra, Brooklyn’s groovy Gang Gang Dance, Dublin’s finest wind-up electronic from the Vinny Club, two sweaty lesbians from Tampa, LA’s noiseniks No Age plus Kentucky’s ambient Interstates and Bristol’s experimentallers Fuck Buttons. Plus, a strange oddity in Neil Young’s discography from 1982 thrown in! Aoife represents.
This is the soundtrack to your weekend. Whether that is driving down to the Picnic or ignoring the crowds and finding fun elsewhere, this is the upbeat podcast to have at your disposal. Aoife presents.
I’ve been keeping loads of these tunes back from regular posts to put in this podcast. Loads of new material from Beck, Madvillain, Field Music, Grizzly Bear, Jahgan Blakkamoore, Minotaur Shock and Mogwai. Again, Santogold pops up, twice on this podcast. She can’t stay away. Enjoy 56 minutes of nialler9 approved and Aoife Mc-voiced bliss. Oh, and join the near 300 podcast if you haven’t already!
There’s been so much great music to digest lately and June’s podcast is the perfect format to showcase it all. The new BSS side-project/album, King Khan’s dastardly garage stomps (That’s him above), White Denim’s schizo dirty rock ‘n’ roll, a dollop of quality electronica, deep dancehall and dubstep from London, Irish alt-rock, indie and much more. Thanks to Aoife for the presenting. On with show sixteen! Download away.
Before myself and Aoife scuttle off to Barcelona-land for Primavera, we leave you with our fifteenth podcast. Nialler9 is taking a break until the 9th of June as I catch up with some well needed rest and relaxation so this is your lot until then. Do feel free to tell how your gig going is panning out particularly Bon Iver, Get Well Soon, Dj Halfdutch and PCP’s Radio na Life turntables fundraiser in Traffic on Friday night, The Vinny Club album launch on Saturday and anything else you want to share with us. Keep an eye out on State.ie for Primavera coverage and maybe here if I get the chance! Toodle doo and enjoy.
A small present for you all while we enjoy the summer sun, pretend we’re from mainland Europe, get a farmer tan, slack off work, drink in the sunshine and get grumpy with each other. I’ve collated these tunes according to one rule – if they screamed ‘SUMMER’ they were in. A Nice and eclectic 48 minutes.
April’s podcast starts with the most bizarre medieval electro track you’ve ever heard. Seriously, you’ll be prancin’ about like the medieval minstrel from Monty Python’s The Holy Grail after two minutes. The rest of this podcast took 8 hours to prepare and then we let it marinate overnight. Presented by Aoife, it includes an exclusive tune from Jape’s new album Ritual, Scandanavian popster Lykke Li, Electronic wizard Daedelus, cinematic soundtrack music from Quiet Village, soul from Erykah Badu, an Animal Collective doppelganger from Born Ruffians, Irish electronic singer/songwriter David Turpin (whose song sounds like another famous tune, if you know what it is holler in the comments), the half-Swedish, half-Irish Kill Krinkle Club, Anticon’s Dosh, Dublin electro Merlin The Vinny Club and the far-from extinct The Dodos from San Francisco.
By the skin of our teeth, we finally got the March Podcast done. A couple remixes here from Boards of Canada and XXXChange, a MGMT/Lil Kim mashup, new tunes from Outkast, Chemical Brothers featuring Spank Rock, El Guincho, Crystal Castles and Envelopes. We dedicate this podcast to Paul Watson (Write code, Get money). Aoife presents as always.
Holler in the comments about your favourite/least favourite tracks.
Incidentally, this is post number 700 since nialler9 began!
