Well it's finally here. Just yesterday I became the proud owner of the new album by The Fall. For the last two months I've been waiting impatiently for it to arrive and finally the day has come. On first listen it's well up to standard and already I prefer it over last years "Reformation" album. This playlist would probably have been online yesterday were it not for the fact that I had to re-jig it to include a track from the new Fall album "Imperial Wax Solvent". There are two tracks on it which I think will be in most people's lists at the end of the year. There's a great little number called "I've Been Duped" which I've been singing to myself for the last twelve hours or so and then there's "50 Year Old Man" which is kind of seperated into three sections and comes in at over ten minutes long and which will probably appear in the next playlist. Anyway apart from The Fall this week also includes some great stuff from Kyte, Sarandon, Tokyo Police Club and Ruby Suns to name just four. Don't forget if you have anything to say about anything then get over to the forum and goddam say it!
1. Aiden John Moffat - Nothing In Common (Chemikal Underground) Taken from the former Arab Strap frontman’s new album “I Can Hear Your Heart”. There's some really interesting stuff on here and I hope Aiden continues to make records. Buy Here
2. Sarandon - Joe’s Record (Slumberland) Taken from the album “Kill Twee Pop”. Out 22nd April. Buy Here
3. Ruby Suns - There Are Birds (Memphis Industries) First track from this weeks featured artist Ruby Suns. Their debut album “Sea Lion” is quite simply brilliant and to prove it there will be two more tracks before the end of the program. What's great about it is the amount of different styles all crammed into one record. It really shouldn't work but.... Buy Here
4. Tokyo Police Club - In A Cave (Memphis Industries) Taken from the bands debut album “Elephant Shell”. Out 5th May. Buy Here
5. The Fall - Wolf Kidult Man (Castle) Taken from the new album “Imperial Wax Solvent”. I've spent the last two months looking forward to this and in true Fall fashion it is no disappointment at all. The hardest thing was deciding which track to play in this program. I think next week I'll include "50 Year Old Man" which is much expanded to the live versions I've been listening to. The album will be released through Castle on 28th April. Buy Here
6. Benga - Go Tell Them (Tempa) Taken from the fine album “Diary Of An Afro Warrior”. Buy Here
7. The Skatalites - One Armed Bandit (Aim) Taken from the album “On The Right Track”. Buy Here
8. Natural Snow Buildings - Cockmotherfighting (Students Of Decay) Taken from the album “Laurie Bird”. This is actually the shortest track on here.
9. Ruby Suns - Kenya Dig It (Memphis Industries) Second track from this weeks featured artist. Taken from the album “Sea Lion”. Buy Here
10. Discosavedmygirl - Standing In Line Is For Cunts (Self Released) Taken from the album “Lovestruck & Scared”.
11. Melys - Chinese Whispers (Transformed Dreams) I think it's about time we had a new record from Melys. This track is a fair few years old now. Still sounds great though. Buy Here
12. Dartz - Fantastic Apparatus (Xtra Mile) Taken from the bands new 10″ e.p.
13. Kyte - Boundaries (Kids) Taken from the bands self titled debut album. Buy Here

17. Isosceles - Kitch Bitch (Art Goes Pop) Apparently this is the second single from Glasgow's Isosceles. I don't own the first one so if anyone knows where I can find one please get in touch. "Kitch Bitch" will be released through Art Goes Pop on 21st April.
18. Ruby Suns - Ole Rinka (Memphis Industries) Final track from this weeks featured artist. Takenm from the fine album “Sea Lion”. Buy Here
19. Team Genius - Sing Song () Taken from the album "Hooray".
20. Los Campesinos! - You! Me! Dancing! (Wichita) Taken from the brilliant album "Hold On Now, Youngster". It's a slightly different version to the one which appeared on last years e.p. Buy Here
