1. Clinic - Magic Boots (Domino) This comes from an album called "Funf" which is a collection of some of Clinic's finest works, their b sides.
2. My Favorite Jeans - Honey (CDR) This is a bit of a curiosity which fell on my doormat just the other day. I have very little information about the band other than the rather obvious fact that they are Swedish.
3. Rothko - Be Invisible (Bip Hop) From the new album "Eleven Stages Of Intervention"
4. A Genuine Freakshow - I Left My Blood On Your Bathroom Floor (Self Released) Well for a start it's a great name for a band and secondly, it's a great band. A Genuine Freakshow come from Reading and this is one of three tracks on the bands latest EP which can be purchased at their My Space site HERE. Go to it!!
5. Old Time Relijun - Tightest Cage (K) This is the new 7" single from what I'm tempted to say is Portland, Oregon's finest export.
6. The Harrisons - Monday's Arms (Remix) (White Label) I'm not sure if or when this 12" is going to get a proper release. I hope it's soon because I'm sure you'll agree this is a great remix.
7. Peace In Our Time - That Some Old Phrase (Cloudberry) Two band from Sweden in the same program? They must be paying me I hear you thinking but of course you would be wrong. This is from one of those very cute 3" CD things. It's the last track on an EP called "Tiger". Check out www.peaceinourtime.tk for more details.
8. The Dead Science - On Your Shore (Silencio) This comes from a 7" single which features The Dead Science on one side doing this version of Enya's "On Your Shore" better than the original for sure, and on the other side it's Parenthetical Girls covering Tori Amos. There are only 300 copies of this avaliable and apparently they are only going to be sold at gigs.
9. The Noisettes - Sister Rosetta (Mercury) CDS
10. Welcome - All Set (Fat Cat) I'm a bit late on this one. The album's called "Sirs" and was released at the back end of last year.
11. The Jakpot - Turning Point (Little Teddy) I think it's fair to say this band could be the best thing to come out of Manchester this year although every time I make such claims someone always comes along and makes me look like a twat, anyway The Jakpot are indeed from Manchester and this track comes from their debut release which can be purchased on CD or 10" Vinyl from the bands website HERE
12. Racoo oo oon - Behold Secret Kingdom (Gilgongo) New 7"
13. Marc With a C - Nerdy Girl (Neighborhood Nuclear Superiority) From the album "What The Hell Is Wrong With Marc With a C?". Out sometime in June.
14. Dogs - Dirty Little Shop (Weekender) Title track from the new Dogs EP which will be released in the UK on June 18th, a bit earlier in the US if memory serves (rarely).
15. Jesu - Sundown (Aurora Borelis) Now normally I wouldn't dream of including a seventeen and a half minute track in a playlist but I just could not leave this out. It's from the bands "Sundown/Sunrise" 12" and is totally world class. I think these records are going to be quite hard to come by, according to their site the second pressing is already selling well so you would be well advised to get onto this one pretty sharpish and save yourself a lifetime of regret and emptyness.
