Pod Fodder (Volume Thirty Nine)

Download Here

1. Butane - This Is Your Brain On Music (Crosstown Rebels)
Taken from the album "Endless Forms". 

2. Quest For Fire - Bison Eyes (Tee Pee)
Taken from the Toronto bands self titled debut album which will be released through Tee Pee records on 9th June.

3. Diverted - Big Baby Fear (Thursday Club Recordings)
Taken from the London band's self titles debut album. 

4. Yppah - The Son Saves The Rest (Ninja Tune)
I'm really into this record at the moment. Taken from the album "They Know What The Ghost Know" which will be available all over the place from next week. 

5. Bounty Killer & Lieutenant - Not Another World (MP3)

6. Hatcham Social - Sidewalk (Fierce Panda)
By the time you read this I will hopefully have seen these guys at The Duchess in York. This is another track from the brilliant debut album "You Dig The Tunnel, I'll Hide The Soil". 

6th May - York, The Duchess
7th May - Liverpool, Barfly
8th May - Glasgow, ABC 2
9th May - Wakefield, Escobar
15th May - Brighton, The Great Escape @ The Hope
1st June - Cardiff, Barfly
2nd June - Derby, The Royal

7. The Legends - Always The Same (Labrador)
I've been looking forward to this album for ages and disappoint it does not. It will be released through Labrador on 6th May and also contains the excellent "Seconds Away" which if you've been paying attention you will recall from previous Fodders. They don't seem to have any live dates in the pipeline but then they never do... Lazy gits!

8. Dirty Summer - Camp Carnival (Winning Sperm Party)
Another band which featured on last years "Hit The North" compilation of new Scottish bands is Dunfermline's Dirty Summer who have popped up again with a full albums worth of stuff and damn fine it is too. "The Purity Ball" is the bands debut album and can be downloaded for free from the Winning Sperm Party website. 

21st June - Edinburgh, The Electric Circus

9. Moose - Suzanne (Hut)

10. The Answering Machine - Obviously Cold (Heist Or Hit)
Taken from the Manchester band's debut album "Another City, Another Sorry". They are currently out and about supporting Twisted Wheel who I must confess to truly disliking in quite a big way. This is a great record though. 

11. Japandroids - Wet Hair (Unfamiliar)
Another top tune from the new album "Post Nothing" which was released last week. 

12. The Sleepover Disaster - Friend (Devil In The Woods)
This is a record which has been part of my staple diet for the last week or so. High in fibre and very nutritious it reminds me of an early Catherine Wheel.  This track comes from their debut album "Hover" which has been around a couple of months but has only just found it's way to North Yorkshire. Now if only it's creators could do the same...

13. Sky Larkin - Matador (Wichita)
Taken from the Leeds bands debut album "The Golden Spike" which is finally released this week. Seems to have been in the pipeline for ages. 

3rd May - Birmingham, The Victoria
5th May - Dublin, Academy 2
6th May - Belfast, Auntie Annie's
8th May - Canterbury, The Farmhouse
16th May - Brighton, Great Escape
23rd May - Liverpool, Sound City

14. The Vaselines - Think You're A Man (Sub Pop)
I had forgotten just how good The Vaselines were and now there is a brand new compilation to remind us. It's called "Enter The Vaselines" and contains just about everything the Glasgow band produced. It comes as a two disc set. The first disc is basically the same as the 1992 compilation "The Way Of The Vaselines" while disc two contains lots of live tracks and demos. If your new to The Vaselines this is a pretty essential purchase. 

15. Butane - Mutation (Crosstown Rebels)
