Show 171 – North X North East

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

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

The South By South-West Festival always sounds like such a fantastic event, and it’s something I’d like to get to one day if it’s still going by the time I can afford the trip ! Of course, given this week’s news I hope that we’re all still alive given the media hysteria over Swine Flu… So, since I didn’t get there I thought that this week I’d do the next best thing and play a few tracks from the 2009 opening night sampler along with the usual weekly tracks. So enjoy a little flavour of the Texas festival from the comfort of your own mp3 player.

Show 170 – When Birds Touch The Moon

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

It’s always really exciting when a band you really like bring out a new album after a long gap, especially when they’re an indie band and you have to buy the album from them in Canada. There’s that delicious thrill of anticipation as you wait for it to arrive, followed by the nervousness as you put it in the CD player for its first spin and hope it’s going to live up to expectations. Of course, there’s a HUGE blast of excitement when it proves to be an absolute stunner – which the new Papermoon album is. But there’s the same buzz when you hear ANY new music for the first time and it hits the spot – and that’s why I love podcasting and the many gems it brings to my ears every week.

Turning it around again, here’s an eclectic selection after last week’s rockier dose of fun. Yes, it’s more of ths music I received when I was on my podcasting break – all great stuff and probably only a few months behind other shows who may have played it by now. Even if you’ve heard it before, remember that great music always rewards with repeated listening. This one’s for John – fellow cyclist / forumite / Twitterer & listener !
