Show 71 – Work Off The Excesses

Tuesday, December 26th, 2006

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

I hope you all had a peaceful and happy Christmas and are currently settling back and trying to digest the overindulgences of the big day. Why not use this week’s Three From Leith as your aid to recovery and get up, shake of the sleepiness and work off those calories by having a god jump around to this week’s great tunes ?

Cedar Falls – Car Crash
Formed in late 2005, Cedar Falls are Robert Hough, Joey Lowtown, Keiron Coyne and Alex Williams, they hail from the outskirts of Liverpool and play some stomping indie rock. Get down with them and work off those sprouts !!

Metropol – My Own Gravity
With a great Keane / Coldplay influenced-sound slathered in lashings of sparkling electric piano, this is a real post-Christmas cracker from Spain’s Metropol who hail from Valencia. Watch you don’t dance into Granny and knock her flying as you get right into this !

The Stirring – So This Is How It Feels
A band I found on the Podsafe Music Network, this happy bunch of ex-pat Aussies now resident in Brighton in the UK are the perfect end to your TFL exercise routine for this festive season. They definitely know how it feels to be alive – which is how you should be feeling after shaking yer bahookies aff !

Digg Three From Leith !

Wednesday, December 20th, 2006

Tech site Digg.com is now listing Podcasts.

Warm the jaded cockles of an old man’s heart this Christmas and go and Digg Three From Leith. I’d be chuffed to bits if you did !

Thank you all and a very Merry Christmas !

Show 70 – A Christmas Cracker !

Tuesday, December 19th, 2006

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

Relief all round ! I’d just spent the best part of two hours putting the show together and the application hung when I came to save the finished file. It then managed to hang the PC and a hard reboot was the only solution. I thought I’d lost the whole thing and I was about to throw in the towel – fortunately, by some Christmas miracle the auto-save had been working away and I was able to recover the whole show. Phew ! Sit back and enjoy this year’s Christmas special with your mince pies, sherry and slippers. There’s some punk, some rock, some alt-country, some pop and lashings of cheese ! See you next week after the big day’s been and gone. Seasons Greetings one and all.

Bubble – Christmas Here On Mars

Dropkick – Writing To Santa (2006 version)

thehipcola – Sleigh Ride

3 Blind Mice – Watchstar

Pushstart Wagon – Christmas Tree Farm

The Kazoo Funk Orchestra – Santa’s Dead

mydols – Merry Freakin’ Christmas

Escape Goat – Christmas In Pizzaville

RaykoKRB – 12 Strippers Of Christmas

The soundbed was ‘Bluegrass Jingle Bells’ by Carl Vasta.

Big props given out to:Gabor, Richard & Jess for the comments. Marilyn who wanted to send one but was too full of the cold (get well soon, Marilyn !). Everyone who’s been a part of the show in 2006. Without you all I’d be talking to myself and playing silent tunes to dead air. Thank you.

Show 69 – No Sniggering Up The Back !

Tuesday, December 12th, 2006

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

I’m afraid that family commitments once again mean that this week’s show is slightly lighter on the chat, and consequently a little shorter than usual. Think of this situation as a pre-Christmas treat before I hit my stride on the Christmas show, fuelled by mulled wine and an overwhelming sense of demob-happiness. Come that time you’ll probably be wishing that I was a bit less waffly and a bit quieter ! In the meantime, enjoy the return of a recent favourite and two newcomers to Three From Leith !

Stereomovers – Love Is
The return of the Stereomovers, buoyed by the reaction of the podcasting community to their excellent music. Another excellent track from their debut EP, Stereomovers, which you can treat yourself to for the princely sum of roughly £3.70 on iTunes (depending on the exchange rate).
Stereomovers’ MySpace
Email the Stereomovers via MySpace

Au4 – Hit and Miss
Another track which was brought to my attention on the wonderful Well Made Music podcast, hosted by Neil and created about a mile and a half along the road from the TFL studios. Bands which can create these soaring, haunting, layered choral vocals are a rare treat – when I find them (like gold at the end of a rainbow), it’s real treasure. Grab some more gold from them here on CDBaby or Tower Records, or download via their site.

Seagull Strange – Sullas Return
A band who emailed me out of the blue with the request that anyone could forward on this free track to friends, family and acquaintances to help spread the word, Seagull Strange ride the sea breezes with a great hook and an instantly memorable melody. Posing in a smart bar for their publicity pic just adds to their classiness.

The soundbed was ‘Creamy Kittens’ by Ultra Deep Field.

Show 68 – Ioda Getta Move On !

Tuesday, December 5th, 2006

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

Much less talk this week due to family commitments, and very different shownotes as I’m playing tracks from the Ioda Promonet (hence the terrible pun in the show title). Very helpfully of them, they generate shownote data for podcasters – fantastic for me this week being very pushed for time.

It’s a very rock-filled show this week in contrast to the milder shows of the last few weeks – enjoy it and do let me know what you though of it via the shownotes or email.
