Fascinating Things : Issue 71

Still catching up on about three weeks worth of submissions so some of the below might be slightly out of date…..

Hot off the press is news of the  much anticipated third album from Harry Howard and the NDE, which  is teased with a pay what you want track “The Only One”. The album is called “Sleepless Girls”. Marvellous!

Politburo, from the place on the other side of the Irwell, kindly donated a track to our “Salford Streets” charity album a few years back,  i’ll return the favour by bringing to your attention their album “Barrington Way” which is rather fine indeed.

The somewhat musically schizophrenic Sky Between Leaves journey between Krautrock, Dream Pop, Post-Punk and Space Rock in this four track EP  called “Klein Blues”. They are a trio from Brazil who reside in East London.

The utterly wonderful Opposite Sex , described as post-post-punk,  released their new one in August, just got around to listening to it.  Chaotic but charming lo-fi majesty….

David Pajo last released something as Papa M back in 2004, indeed we have to back as far as 2001 for an original release. That will be remedied on November 11th with a new album.  Here’s the single from it….

I’m very pleased to share the song “Odal” from Wardruna´s upcoming album “Runaljod – Ragnarok” set to be released 21 October through By Norse Music.
This release is the third instalment in a trilogy of albums that began with Runaljod – gap var Ginnunga (2009) and continued with Runaljod – Yggdrasil (2013). The song itself features special appearances from main man Einar Selvik’s own children. Wonderful percussive epic music.

Music Diary #46

I dunno – you don’t see any new music for a couple of weeks and then a shed load appears all at once…….

  • Moongoose – Organic Technology: Reaction Music II – debut album from the Liverpool based pioneers of all things electronic. More details of how to get it here – as with their predecessor releases (Footprints, Sihouettes and Shadows) this all rather marvellous – capturing the heart of motorik kraut rock and taking it on electronic explorations of layered sound. Andy Diagram, Pete Wylie, Ian Templeton, Carl Hunter and Steve Grimes perform cameo roles. Have only got a five track sampler (of a ten track album) but if the rest of it is like this it’s a must buy for lovers of electronic. Out on April 7th on thier own “Imprint of Quality” lable.
  • Velocets – new band – a trio who used to be in other bands – dark manc pop rock balladeering in a post punk stylee – couple of tracks both of which are rather fine indeed – more info here
  • Kodakid – band from Waterford with a good blues feel….
  • So Shush – A Mirror Gaze – great new album from Carole and Ian….fourth album …..one of Salford’s great bands who seem to slip under the local radar but get international recognition….
  • Opposite Sex – from New Zealand (a place of some serendipity due to the location of the mighty Farley who suggests tunes for the show) interesting and quirky indie pop of some merit – the album is out on 23rd April and I would recommend you give it a spin on Bandcamp

More tomorrow – need to go and drink beer and listen to Steve Doyle on SCR now…..
