Pod Fodder (Volume One Hundred And Thirty Five)


1. Asobi Seksu - Never Understand (Polyvinyl)
This is one of two tracks on the new Asobi Seksu single. As you will notice it's a cover version of The Jesus And Mary Chain classic and done very well in my opinion. The other track is a version of "Little House Of Savages" which was originally done by The Walkmen on their 2004 album "Bows and Arrows" oddly enough I prefer either of these two tracks to anything that was on the recent Asobi Seksu album "Fluorescence".

2. Jiony - Waiting For The Sun (Bad Panda)
This is the title track from a new three track EP by Jiony which can be downloaded for free from the Bad Panda Records website

Boombox Supernova Cover Art

3. Astrobrite - Your Radio Body (Self Released)
Taken from the new album Boombox Supernova.

90 Bisodol (Crimond)

4. Half Man Half Biscuit - Descent Of The Stiperstones (Probe Plus)
I can't get enough of this record at the moment. It's the new album by the legendary Half Man Half Biscuit "90 Bisodol (Crimond)" which is available now on Probe Plus.

Ersatz G.B.

5. The Fall - Greenway (Cherry Red)
This is the one we've all been waiting for. An annual event which never fails to send shivers down my spine. I am of course referring to the release of a new Fall album. This years work is entitled " Ersatz GB" and takes a bit more listening to than last years excellent "Our Future Your Clutter" which still turns up regularly in my house. I particularly care for this track which see's Mark do hi impression of a Darlek on the intro. Ersatz GB will be released on Cherry Red on 14th November.

6. Metamonto - H2NS (Ho Hum)
I'd love to tell you all about this four track EP but in time honored fashion I've lost the e-mail and have can't remember a thing about it. Sounds great though.

Shadow EP [10" VINYL]

7. Ringo Deathstarr - Prisms (Club AC30)
This is a track from the new Ringo Deathstarr EP "Shadow" which is released on Club AC30 this week and is  set to whet the appetite for the new album which will be released in February.

You Always Loved Violence

8. The Blanche Hudson Weekend - Different Again (Squirrel)
Probably the most played album in my house at the moment is that of The Blanche Hudson Weekend who have had singles featured on this site over the last couple of years. Only now though do we get the pleasure of their debut album and what a pleasure it is. I must have heard it twenty times now and still strange things happen in my trousers. The record is called "You Always Loved Violence" and is available now on Squirrel Records of Leeds.

The Big More

9. The Joy Formidable - Cradle (Fang Island Remix) (Atlantic)
Taken from "The Big More EP" which will hopefully be the last release before the band return to the studio to work on some new stuff.

House Music Cover Art

10. Wounded Knee - Whither Wither (Jerry Loves Records)
This is a track from a yellow cassette entitled "House Music" which is clearly the last thing it actually is. To celebrate the release of the yellow cassette Wounded Knee will be playing a show upstairs at Isobar in Edinburgh on 18th November. Tickets can be obtained from their Bandcamp Page where if you should buy one you will receive a download of a Wounded Knee show recorded in Glasgow back in February. Probably worth the ticket price just for that if you ask me!

Tiger Trap - Supercrush

11. Tiger Trap - Supercrush (K)
I just happened upon this record again earlier in the week. It's the a-side of a seven inch single released in 1993 and still sounds good.

Housing Cover Art

12. Japanese Ash - Conny (Self Released)
Some moments of loveliness to end this weeks Fodder. This is a track from a four track EP which you can download from Bandcamp for whatever you deem it worth to pay.
