Some of the more eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that with the exception of this week and last weeks programs every file on the site has been removed. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about it. The company which hosts my webspace decided to do an audit and as a result decided that the files for this site contravened the terms of service and promptly deleted them. I don’t keep back ups of the playlists so short of putting them all back together again from scratch they’ve gone. Not to worry though this weeks program is a bit of a blinder if I do say so myself. This weeks featured artist is Los Campesinos! who Im sure most people agree are probably destined for world domination in 2008.
1. Small Crew - Boxing Day (God Is In The TV) Released a couple of weeks ago (on Boxing Day oddly enough) this is the first offering from Small Crew. It’s avaliable as a dowload only single together with another track called “Getting Up” which is just as good. Buy Here
2. Disfear - Fiery Father (Relapse) Taken from the album “Live The Storm”. Out 28th January.
3. Soldatino - King
4. Los Campesinos! - Don’t Tell Me To Do The Math(s) (Wichita) First track from this weeks featured artist. Los Campesinos! Despite being the current music press darlings they have managed to produce an album which lives up to all expectations. “Hold On Now, Youngster” will be avaliable from 18th February. The band will be touring the country in February with Johnny Foreigner who I must confess I’m not familiar with. Check out their My Space page for more details. Buy Here.
5. Triola - In Lourdes (Kompact) Another track from the compilation “Pop Ambient 2008″. Buy Here
6. Blood On The Wall - Sorry Sorry Sarah (Social Registry) Taken from the new album “Liferz”. Out 22nd January. Buy Here.
7. The Wake - English Rain (Sarah) Taken from the 1990 album “Make It Loud”. I don’t know how easy it is to find this record these days but I think it might be time for a re-issue.
8. Tepr - En Direct De La Cote (Alavi Rerox Remix) (Wall Of Sound) 12″ vinyl. Buy Here
9. Okay - Only (Absolutely Kosher) This guy has the most extraordinary voice! Taken from the new album “Huggable Dust”.
10. Eats Tapes - No Part Name (Tigerbeat 6) This has been around for almost a year and I’ve only just got myself a copy!! This is the first track from the “Dos Mutantes” album and is by no means the best track on there. More to come me thinks. Buy Here
11. Bob Mould - Who Needs To Dream (Beggars Banquet) The former Husker Du and Sugar front man returns with a new album “District Line”. Out 11th February. Buy Here
12. Los Campesinos! - Sweet Dreams, Sweet Cheeks (Wichita) Second track from this weeks featured artist. From the forthcoming album “Hold On Now, Youngster”. Buy Here
13. Disconcerts - William S Burroughs (Self Released) What can you say? Pure brilliance.
14. Correcto - Do It Better (Domino) It seems to have taken the band ages to get this debut album done. It has been well worth the wait though and you’ll be able grab yourself one when it hit’s the shops on 25th February. Buy Here
15. Destroyer - My Favorite Year (Merge) Taken from the new album “Trouble In Dreams” which is apparently the eighth Destroyer album. Out 18th March. I’ll probably play more tracks from it closer to the release date.
16. Ecstatic Sunshine - Herrons (?) I’ve not got much information about this cd at all. It appears to be called “Way”, contains three tracks of which this is the shortest. It’s certainly very different to their “Freckle Wars” album from a couple of years ago.
17. Voicst - High As An Amsterdam Tourist (Play It Again Sam)Taken from the new album “A Tale Of Two Devils”.
18. Butthole Surfers - The Hurdy Gurdy Man (Rough Trade) I wasn’t entierly sure about including this track in the program but Vince managed to persuade me after a couple of beers. To be fair I can be quite plyable about most things after a couple of beers in fact there’s not much I won’t do for a couple of pints and……..Probably best to stop about now.
19. Los Campesinos! - Death To Los Campesinos! (Wichita) Final track from this weeks featured artist. The album “Hold On Now, Youngster” will be out 18th February. Buy Here
20. Birds Of Prey - Turning Big Rocks Into Little Rocks (Relapse) Another winner from the Relapse stable. This track comes from the new Birds Of Prey album “Sulfur & Semen”. Out 28th January. Buy Here
