Pod Fodder (Volume One Hundred And Two)

Download Zip File


1. Lubec - Your Magic Wand (The Acme Thunderer)
This is a track from the debut EP by Lubec. According to the press release this was recorded on a tobacco farm in Virginia and is available on The Acme Thunderer label. 

2. Misio - Love In A Snowing Elevator (Self Released)
Only a couple of weeks after the release of "The Cathedral EP" Misio is back with another four tracks. The new, or newer record is called "ZimoĊ›wiat" and you can check out the rest of the tracks along with the previous "Cathedral EP" at Misio's Soundcloud thingy.

3. Moon Wiring Club - House Of Tricks (Gecophonic)
As soon as I saw the title of this album I was desperate for it to be a good record. I mean if your going to call something "A Spare Tabby At The Cats Wedding" you have to be able to put some substance behind it right? Fortunately the equally well monikered Moon Wiring Club have put together a record of enviable madness. You can order the album on Vinyl or CD from the Gecophonic website who indicate that the music on the vinyl version is different to that on the CD which is something I'll have to investigate. You can buy both formats from them as a "Tabby Bundle" for a mere twenty five quid.

Dagger Paths
4. Forest Swords - If Your Girl (No Pain In Pop)
Taken from the album "Dagger Paths"

Calamity Jane - Say It
5. Calamity Jane - Say It (Imp)
This week see's the start of a major re-filing operation of seven inch singles mainly because the old system has broken down to such an extent that things are all over the place and I can't find anything so the likelihood is that over the coming weeks and months I will be posting tracks from records I haven't seen for years, and here is one such example.  This is a record I bought back in 1990 on the Imp label featuring a band I considered at the time to be a second rate Babes In Toyland. Listening to it now however I think I may have done them a disservice. This should be played as loud as possible.

Imaginary Truth
6. Aureole - Helping Hand 
Taken from the album "Imaginary Truth" which I suspect may be a Japan only release.


7. New Generation Dudes - Stevie Sunshine's Super Solar Smoke-Out (Self Released)
This is a track from an E.P. by new Chicago band New Generation Dudes who certainly know how to apply a bit of charm in their e-mails "IF YOU WANT YOUR MIND BLOWN OUT OF YOUR ASSHOLE, YOU WILL REVIEW THIS ALBUM/EP/TIRADE OF PURE MUSICAL DOMINATION. IF THIS DOES NOT APPEAL TO YOU, DO NOT DARE CLICK ON THIS LINK, BECAUSE YOUR HEAD WILL LITERALLY FUCKING EXPLODE. THAT SHIT AT THE BEGINNING WAS ONLY AN ANALOGY, BUT IF YOU ARE NOT READY FOR THIS, YOUR HEAD WILL LITERALLY FUCKING EXPLODE. DO NOT FUCK AROUND. "

Bardo Pond
8. Bardo Pond - Just Once (Fire)
I must admit I thought Bardo Pond had stopped making music some time ago so I was quite surprised to receive a new album by the Pennsylvania band. The album is simply called "Bardo Pond" and is released this week on Fire records. I particularly like the guitar sound in this track. It puts me in mind of some of J. Mascis's finest work.


9. The Girls At Dawn - When She Goes Away (Norton)
Taken from the Brooklyn bands debut album "Call The Doctor".


10. The Wind Up Birds - In A Yorkshire Call Centre I Lay Down And Wept (Sturdy)
Another new track from the Leeds outfit courtesy of the lovely people at Sturdy Records who have recently put out the Leeds band's new E.P. "Courage, For Tomorrow Will Be Worse" which apparently has been picking up some airplay on 6 music. You can get hold of a vinyl copy from the Sturdy website.

11. Mogwai - How To Be A Werewolf (Rock Action)
I must confess I haven't been that impressed by Mogwai over the last few years. They certainly made some great records in their younger days, I'm thinking of a seven inch single called "Summer" was particularly tremendous but the last few years have, to my ears... erm... well got a bit boring really. So I was very pleased to receive a new track which really exited me. It's the first taste of the new album "Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will" and is produced by Paul Savage who is the guy who produced Mogwai's debut album "Mogwai Young Team" back in 1997. "Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will" will be released on the band's own Rock Action label on 14th February.

Trials
12. Shady Bard - Trials (Forest Industries)
This is the title track from the Birmingham bands new album which was released on Forest Industries last month.

  1. The Forest Swords track is magnificent, and the Shady Bard and Wind-Up Birds songs sound good too. Many thanks!
