Another week has passed, the highpoint of which was a wonderful meetup with my friend / Three From Leith listener / Podcast User Magazine editor Linda who kindly flew up from London after PodcastConUK on the 19th to spend the day with me. We had a great day, I was filled in with the goings-on at PCCUK, we blethered, we ate and Alastair from Dropkick and I made Linda try Irn Bru. It must have been a hit â€“ the can’s now back in Philadelphia !
This week’s show came about through my observation that Blind Divine had a Kate Bush-ness about Paula’s vocals; after that I went through my collection and the web to find Kate-ness to bring you. Enjoy the results.
Blind Divine – Something Magical
Impressed by last week’s track, I just had to play another from the 3-CD box-set, ‘Melancholia’, which the band very kindly sent me over. This is the opening track from their 2005 release, ‘Devouring The Beautiful’, and beautiful is the word I’d use to describe it. Snap a CD up for Christmas here.

Lindsay Sugden – In This Life
Intelligent, talented multi-instrumentalist and singer with a hauntingly sensual voice, it’s Lindsay from Chocyamo and Flowers for Algernon. The e-bowed guitar lines in here make me just want to melt; I don’t know why, but they just do. Magical ! Buy the ‘When Lightening Strikes’ EP by clicking the PayPal logo here.
Alice Marie – Lipstick Diaries
Life-coach and sensual songstress Alice Marie’s song was hauntingly familiar, especially when I remembered it as ‘the dodgy stomach song’. You’ll hear why in the show; needless to say it’s a bit light-hearted and possibly slightly disrespectful to such an amazing song. Listen out for the vocal and guitar solo interplay at the end. It sends shivers up my spine; I love the emotional and physiological effects that great music can have on me. Buy the music here.
