November Podcast

Well, myself and Aoife are heading off to Poland for the week so we are going to leave you with this nugget of a podcast. It’s longer than usual but all these tunes come highly recommended.

There are two songs from the recent Well Deep: Ten Years of Big Dada compilation, a song from a compilation of rock instrumentals from the 50’s and 60’s called Loose Ends which can be found for download at the excellent Yank Sizzler, songs from the new releases by Saul Williams, Akala, Muscles, Neon Neon (that’s Gruff and Boom Bip in the Delorean above) and Free Blood, as well as a soon to be released Super Extra Bonus Party remix by Nouveaunoise, an excellent Burial remix and oldies from The Pharcyde and Paul Simon.

Mike will take care of the blog while I’m gone.

Let’s get down to Biznizz..

We finally recorded number eight last night, despite being overcome with random giddiness all day yesterday. Do you ever get like that? When you can’t help but do something silly by default. Anyway, I made it very difficult for Aoife when she was recording it cos I was like that. Poor girl. I did learn about Musical Youth though so it’s all good.

Likin’ this one. I have been holding back on posting some of these songs on their own as I wanted to put them into the Podcast. We start with a song from Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof soundtrack, take in a tune from Flylo’s excellent Reset EP, a beautiful new José Gonzalez tune, Jeffrey Lewis covering Crass, a Thom Yorke remix, a song from yet another shelved Q-Tip album, Wicklow boys Hybrasil, a band with a stupid name and a Frenchman with an ear for soundtracks.

Rory tenpastseven
Rory from Tenpastseven

Rory from Ten Past Seven on stage at Mantua – July 2007

Everytime we do our monthly podcast, I’m convinced each one is better than the previous but I think this may be the month where this rings true! Twelve mighty tunes – some old and rare, some new and apparently rare.

Included are two b-sides from recent 7″ releases, one a Diplo remix of that “Notorious” Jamaica tune from Turbulence (which Boomkat says is rare but I bought it in Tower Records ferchrissakes!) and the Yo Majesty remix of The Go! Team’s “Doin it Right”. Also featured is New York Latin Hustle flavour from Seguida, cheesy Disney Ska, a surprisingly good Princess Superstar song from 2001, a new Prefuse 73 single, new Beirut, Hard Working Class Heroes Irish bands and an old blog favourite revisited.

Thanks as always to the mouthpiece of the ‘cast: Aoife Mc, presenter of The Indie Hour on 103.2 Dublin City Anna Livia FM. Check out her blog.

Electric Picnic August
Electric Picnic August

I think this is the upbeat podcast I’ve been promising all summer. As the sun finally shone this weekend, it puts us in good stead for the next when we descend on Stradbally once again for the festival of the year. So to get you all pumped about the Electric Picnic which starts Friday, this month’s podcast is all Electric Picnic artists.

It can be the soundtrack to your preparations: frantically searching for timetables online, buying another tent because you weren’t arsed taking down that huge 12 man tent last year, deciding whether to brave it without wellies or the last minute dash for toilet roll.

I’m looking forward to seeing two sets from the Beastie Boys so much so we started this podcast with a favourite of mine from the NY men. Enjoy and see you down the front! The voice of the podcast as always is Aoife Mc, presenter of The Indie Hour on 103.2 Dublin City Anna Livia FM. Check out the excellent blog.

I was going to make this an upbeat, summer podcast but 50-odd days of consecutive rain can obviously get a brotha down so it’s a bit more of a chilled out affair than usual with more guitar music than usual. I still had a chance to squeeze in a track from my favourite MC MF Doom as he has a re-released deluxe packaged version of “Mmm.. Food” out and we have a couple of bass stompers to round off July from Boxcutter and Prince Kong. We’re also highlighting the Remix Artist Collective with two remixes of theirs of The Shins & Tokyo Police Club back to back. Thanks once again to Aoife Mc for presenting. Represent!
