Show 293 – A Quarter Of The Way In

Friday, March 18th, 2016

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

Here we go with the first show of 2016, as we reach the end of the 1st quarter. Where did the first part of the year go? Life’s been busy and dealt the family a fairly awful knock, so things have all been in a bit of a tizzy. But I finally found the time to get some more great music down, interspersed with the usual waffle, to see you through until the next episode. Enjoy – and do let me know if you find any great new music yourself which you think the other TFL listeners would enjoy.

Liberty Ship – Learning To Fly

Abel Raise the Cain – Million Dollar Night

Partisan – Two Lovers

The soundbed was ‘Immersion (Original Mix)’ by Jaques Le Noir
Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

Show 293 will be here soon!

Monday, March 14th, 2016

Show 293 is recorded and ready to go as soon as I receive a replacement copy of one of the tracks from the band’s PR. Unfortunately, the track cuts off prematurely and I somehow failed to notice it until I was mixing the show on Friday night after finishing the recording. As soon as the new version of the track arrives, I’ll replace the old one, mix the revised show down and have it up in a jiffy!

Show 292 – The 2015 Christmas Show

Welcome to the first Christmas show in many years – with the key difference this year being that there are no festive tunes featured (other than the festive intro and outros). Sit back with a hot mug of mulled wine and a mince pie or two and fire up the hifi or the mp3 player to enjoy an end-of-year selection of some of the best music sent to me over 2015. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year – see you all in 2016!

Zurich – Alone

The Easton Ellises – Falcon 69

Skellums – Monsters

Locals – Millions of Ghosts

Tiger Factory – King Of The World

Show 291 – The Almost Lost Edition

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

This is the show that nearly never was; it was started months back as an intended 10th Anniversary Special, but it quickly became clear to me that it just wasn’t coming together as I’d intended. The more I tried, the harder it got to record – until I reached a complete and utter standstill. Struck down with podcaster’s block, I couldn’t make myself record any more than the first third that I’d managed to piece together. I tried many times, and got to the point where I was on the verge of deleting the file and starting over, just to get past the psychological barrier. However, with the passage of time I was able to listen through eventually to what was there and I decided it was actually a decent podcast and could be finished off as a normal show, with none of the anniversary razzmatazz that was making me avoid going near it! So, the show has finally been completed, and features a fabulous trio of Scottish artists for your listening pleasure. Watch this lot – they’re going places (even if it’s just out for a bike ride in the case of the now-defunct Hotrod Cadets!) So enjoy – and do let me know how the new recording setup for this show (entirely iPad on a multitrack DAW) sounds.

Hotrod Cadets – My Heart Sinks

Retro Video Club – Inside Out / Make Up

Ramisco Maki Maki Rocking Horse – For A While At Least / The Four Five Six

The soundbed was ‘In The Sky (Original Mix)’ by Karan & Shivil
Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

Show 290 – The Tablet Edition

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

Well, this was a first – a show recorded on the iPad, live, and flying by the seat of my pants! Other than a slightly fluffed vocal and soudbed coming in a little too soon at the end of one song, it went pretty well (although hearing what I said coming back through the headphones a fraction of a second after I said it was really off-putting). Still, it’s good to try something different every now and again to keep you on your toes. Enjoy the tunes – there’s a real feel of energy behind this week’s selection.

Peur – Explosions

My Cruel Goro – Crapford

Zurich – Chemical / Menace

The soundbed was ‘In The Sky (Original Mix)’ by Karan & Shivil

Show 289 – Holiday Rush

Friday, July 10th, 2015

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

I realised that I’m about to go off on holiday and hadn’t done a podcast since May, so thought I’d better put a quick one together before you think I’ve abandoned you all! Apologies for the rushed feel to the show, but it was done between shopping, packing & cleaning. Enjoy the three great tracks until I get back, and do let the artists know if you like what you hear.

The Kut – I Want You Maniac

Skyline Advantage – Perfect

Emerald Park – Liberteens

The soundbed was ‘In The Sky (Headpockets Pegasus Remix)’ by Karan & Shivil

Show 288 – What Did I Do Again?

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

This week’s podcast is one of those shows which really benefits from being played through a really good pair of headphones. A great selection, which I’m now encoding at a higher than normal bitrate, for you to crank up and jump around to – whether it be in the privacy of your own home or in full public view on the street or in the bus. Immerse yourself in the sheer joy of the music.

Faerground Accidents – She Makes Me Want To Die

The Shy Lips – Bahia Part II

The Slow Readers Club – I Saw A Ghost / Cavalcade

The soundbed was ‘He Said She Said (Offaudio Remix)’ by Karan & Shivil

New podcast tomorrow!

Monday, May 11th, 2015

Since there’ll be a new podcast tomorrow, I thought I’d better make sure the auto-publishing is working on WordPress!

If this appears after being auto-published at 19:25, the show should follow in the early hours of tomorrow without any manual intervention.

Stay tuned…..

Apologies for the late posting

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

Apologies – I appear to have been hit by the dreaded WordPress ‘Missed Schedule’ bug where scheduled posts fail to publish at the specified time.

Unfortunately, I was so busy today I forgot to check on whether TFL had published at 5.30am this morning and only remembered tonight. And when I did, Show 287 was MIA…. I’ve rectified that now by manually publishing it so it’s now available to the world!

I’m trying a temporary solution via CRON job on my web hosting for now – and if this post gets published I’ll know that it has worked and will be ready for the next TFL show’s publication date.

Until then – cheerio!

Show 287 – It’s That 80s Show!

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

Listen here or use the player on the right, though I’d love you to subscribe !

Flu defeated, it’s time for a trip back to the 80s with some eighties-influenced synth-pop from the current day. Hard to conceive that the 80s were 30 years ago, and even stranger to think back to what you were doing back then! So, put on those rose-tinted specs and come with me back to those carefree days of my teens…

Filter Distortion – Black and White

Smoking Ghosts – Dance The Disillusionment Away

I, Us & We – Lanterns

Filter Distortion – Frequency Modulation

The soundbed was ‘Ephemeral Living’ by Zero Project
Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken
