Pod Fodder (Volume Forty)

01. Seven Inches - To Boldly Go (Indie-Mp3 Records)
The Indie -Mp3 label gets of to a flying start with it's first release, a seven inch single by The Seven Inches who come from just down the road in Leeds. This is one if three tracks on their "Open-Ness & Honesty E.P." which will be released on 1st June. The title track is a bit of a belter as well. 

02. Ear Pwr - Beam Of Light (Carpark)
Taken from their excellently titled "Super Animal Brothers III" album which will be released through Carpark Records on 19th May.

03. The Appleseed Cast - A Bright Light (Militia)
Taken from the new album "Sagarmatha" which is definitely one of this years must have albums.

04. Scott Tuma & Mike Weis - On Cox (Digitalis)
Well I think the best way to describe this record is... interesting. This track is taken from a vinyl only album called "Taradiddle". I'm not sure how widely available this is but it's well worth tracking down.  

05. Pocketbooks - Cross The Line (How Does It Feel To Be Loved)
Taken from the London bands debut album "Flight Paths" which will be released through How Does It Feel To Be Loved in July. 

30th May - London, Goonite Club @ The Wilmington Arms
9th June - London, White Heat @ Madame Jo Jo's (with The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart)
25th June - Derbyshire, Indietracks Festival
26th June - Derbyshire, Indietracks Festival

06. Pterodactyl - Share The Shade (Jagjaguwar)
Taken from the album "Worldwild". 

07. The Delgadoes - Pull The Wires From The Wall (Chemikal Underground)
I still miss The Delgadoes. For me their early stuff was superior but I think it's true to say they never made a bad record. This is one of their singles from 1998.

08. Kap Bambino - Dead Lazers (Maton Remix Bin Mix) (Because)
At last. A new record from the wonderful Kap Bambino. The new album "Blacklist" will be released on 1st June and is preceded by a new single "Dead Lazers" which comes in about a thousand different mixes all of which are top top top. If the new album is half as good as last years "Zero Life Night Vision" then a treat is what we are in for. 

14th May - Brighton, The Hope (Great Escape Festival)

09. 5 Turns 25 - Desert Ants (Scattered Disc)
By the looks of it 5 Turns 25 are intending to release about a hundred records this year. They sent me a very nice sampler last week with tracks from most of them and I think this is probably the pick of the bunch. It comes from a CD called "Combined Efforts" which doesn't appear to be available from the bands Myspace as yet, but I'm sure it won't be long.

10. Nokeys - Eyes Of Riot (Mp3)
I don't have any info on this at all. It's just a great track.

11. Go Faster - Good Times (Alcopop)
Go Faster are the hottest thing in Liverpool right now, and you can take that to the bank. This track is from their debut E.P. "A Modern Education" without which your summer cannot be complete.

20th May - Liverpool, Sound City @ Liverpool University (with The Rascals & Sound Of Guns)

12. City Centre - Gladest (Self Released)
This is another band I have very little information about. All I know is that they come from New York and they have created a brilliant debut album. You'll be hearing a lot more from these boys on this site in the near future. Apparently the record will be released in the UK on 25th May. 

13. A Place To Bury Strangers - Missing You (Rocket Girl)
I really would like to see these guys live. They sound like they should be really really loud. This track is taken from their latest E.P. on Rocket Girl. There are a couple of decent remixes of "To Fix The Gash In Your Head" on here as well. I'll include one in a future Fodder if I remember.

14. Art Brut - DC Comics & Chocolate Milkshake (Cooking Vinyl)
Taken from Art Brut's third album "Art Brut Vs Satan" which is available now through Cooking Vinyl. I missed them when they played in York a couple of weeks ago. I was next door with Mr Vincent watching Sky Larkin instead. Oh well, maybe next time.

15. Dreamdate - Tables (Skywriting)
Taken from the excellent album "Patience".
