Pod Fodder (Volume Fifty Two)

Download Here

1. Times New Viking - No Time No Hope (Matador)
Taken from the brilliant new album which will be released on 22nd September, the day after they play in my neck of the woods at a lovely small venue in York called The Basement.

2. Katastrophe - Get Info (Promo)
Taken from the album "Worst Amazing".

3. Ducktails - Seagull's Flight (Olde English Spelling Bee)
Another track from the excellent new album "Landscapes".

4. Synthesizer Shaikh - The Ride (MP3)
This track comes from an album which you can download free from the Synthesizer Shaikh website HERE

5. Maps - I Dream Of Crystal (Mute)
This is the first single to be taken from the new album "Turning The Mind" which will be released through Mute on 28th September. Out next week.

6. High Places - Late Bloomer (Post Present Medium)
If you were paying attention last week you will remember a rather good track by Soft Circle. Well this is on the other side. It 's a split 12" single and this track, at around twelve minutes long takes up (as you would expect) one side.

7. The Delfields - Honest (Self-Released)
Taken from the Brunswick bands debut album "Ogres".

8. Disconcerts - Tongues (Self-Released)
It's been a long time since we last heard from Chichester's Disconcerts who have, since we last spoke undergone a bit of a line-up change. This track is taken from their forthcoming "A Medic" EP which will be released later this month.

9. Slaraffenland - Too Late To Think (Hometapes)
Taken from the new album "We're On Your Side" which will be released through Hometapes on 15th September. A single from the album "Meet And Greet" is available now on 7" also through Hometapes.

10. Boris - Akirame Flower (Catune) Another track from the superb "Golden Dance Classics" 12" EP, two tracks from which were in last weeks Fodder. Out 21st September.

11. Castanets - Rose (Asthmatic Kitty) Taken from the album "Texas Rose, The Thaw And The Beasts".

12. A Sunny Day In Glasgow - Close Chorus (Mis Ojos Discos)
This could well be the album of the year. It has certainly taken up residence on my i-pod and really needs to be heard by every living soul. It's the second album by A Sunny Day In Glasgow and if you thought their debut "Scribble Mural Comic Journal" was good then you're in for a bit of a treat. "Ashes Grammar" is available now through i-tunes but I suggest you hang on for one more week and that will enable you to get your hands on the vinyl version which consists of two slabs of coloured plastic, one is navy blue and the other is a very nice creamy colour. There are only 250 vinyl copies pressed so you might want to nip over to Mis Ojos Discos and order yours without delay.

13. The Fauns - Cool Stuff (Lazer Ghost Recordings) I was saying to Vincent just yesterday that I really can't remember any crap bands from Bristol. I mean, you think about Manchester, Liverpool and almost anywhere else and the places are littered with dodgy bands who sound like Shed Seven, but not Bristol. The Fauns are the latest Bristolians to come my way and this track is taken from the bands self-titled debut album which will be released on 12th October.
