Pod Fodder (Volume Forty Eight)

Some great tunes for you this week including tracks from the new records by the rather cute Cola Jet Set and the rather brilliant Jackie O Motherfucker who apparently have been around ages and managed to pass me by completely. Talking about bands who have been around since the dawn of time we also have a track from the new Yo La Tengo album which is a bit of a return to form and will be released through Matador on 8th September. One of the highlights this week is a new single by Randan Discotheque which will be released as a seven inch single on 31st August and limited to just 500 copies. The single also acts as some kind of raffle ticket which gives it's owner the chance to win stuff made by the band such as screenprints, t-shirts, flags and whatever else they decide to throw in.

2. Yo La Tengo - Nothing To Hide (Matador)

This was the third release on Creation back in 1984.

6. 93 Million Miles From The Sun - The Times We Have Are Now (Parallax Sounds)
From just down the road in Doncaster comes one of the best albums of the year. 93 Million Miles From The Sun released their self titled album a couple of months ago and you need a copy. Simple as...

IBold think it's fair to say the new Sonic Youth album is not the best thing they have ever done but it's still well worth a listen.

12. To The Bones - Sonic Mammoth (Medici)
No real reason for including this apart from stumbling across it during the week and playing it again. Great single from last year. There is an album called "Duke Type A" which I don't own and will try and find.

TBoldaken from the album "The Spoils"

14. Heat Ray - Come Closer (Pop Echo)
These guys remind me so much of early Swervedriver, and believe me that's no bad thing. Taken from the debut album "Loveallover" which is scheduled for release on 4th August
