Aural Delights Podcast 43

It has been a busy old last couple of weeks music wise with new albums from Moff Skellington,  Boxhead and Gloves (members of Da Mutts are in this band and I’ll be playing the album in the next podcast), Fall Fan Dave and The Laptop Dancers, and Kill Pretty (sadly on the latter I am not authorised to share it with you as yet). Add to that the Beggars Banquet release of the latter run of the albums they released by The Fall – ie. The Frenz Experiment, I am Kurious Oranj and Seminal Live – coupled with all the singles and EPs of that period –  and you have a busy period of contemplation, listening and eventually reviewing.

September is upon us and brings with it the Salford Music Festival so this weeks podcast begins with a tentative dip into some of the 200+ artists that are playing over the four days at the end of the month. The next three podcasts after this one will build up to the event by featuring many of the acts that are playing. For the start of my day to day guide of the Festival see here.

The featured record lable is Italian independent imprint  “Bloody Sound Fucktory” which offers a wealth of excellent free downloads. All the albums featured are some five years old but the material is exceptional and I shall be checking out the current output of these bands.

There was also a significant amount of music hanging around from the last few shows that needed to be aired so this podcast is a bit of an end of summer round up.

I have tried to keep the shows below 90 minutes but sometimes this is not possible given the vast amount of music that comes in – this one runs at just around 2 hours.

There is no chat from me this time due to other commitments – it’s an all music mix.
