Pod Fodder (Volume One Hundred And Forty Four)

1. Long Pigs - Worms (SMRT)
This should wake you up after the Christmas holidays. It's one of six brief tracks on a seven inch single which forms the debut outing for the Brooklyn band. What a great way to start the year.

This is the first blast from the London bands second album which will be released sometime in 2012. You would think I'd have more information really wouldn't you. Well they do have some UK dates coming up if you want to a and ask them themselves.

5. Year Of The Tiger - Broken Marrow 

6. Milieu - Holographic Atmo Burn (Milieu Music)
Taken from the new album "Enjoy Your Stay At The Holograph Lounge". There is a limited edition of 50 copies which come in colored paper sleeves with patterned cardstock inserts.

7. Leatherface - Not Superstitious (Imaginary)
This is one of Leatherface's contributions to the "Seconds Out Round One" compilation which was released by Imaginary Records back in 1992. It featured session tracks recorded for the Mark Radcliffe show on BBC Radio one from the likes of Leatherface, Scorpio Rising, Dr Phibes and Boo Radleys. As far as I'm aware there was never a round two which is a bit of a shame. It's also a shame that the BBC don't release records like this any more despite still recording plenty of session especially for BBC 6 Music.

8. RM Hubbert - Car Song (With Aidan Moffat and Alex Capranos) (Chemikal Underground)
This is a track from RM Hubberts second album "Thirteen Lost And Found" which features quite a few more collaborations including a particularly welcome appearance by former Delgado Emma Pollock.
"Thirteen Lost And Found" will be released on Chemikal Underground on 30th January. I love the sleeve of this record.

Gargoyle Days

9. Apteka - Where Days Go (Smart Like Virus Records)
I know this record has been around a few months now and really should have been featured earlier but better late than never as they say. It's a track from the new Apteka album "Gargoyle Days" and you really should try staring at that sleeve after a night on the town.

10. The Twilight Sad - Another Bed (Fat Cat)
Taken from the new Twilight Sad album "No One Can Ever Know" which will be released on Fat Cat on 6th February.

11. Hysterical Injury - Maths (Crystal Fuzz)
This is a track from what is already destined to be one of the best albums of 2012. It's the debut album from Bath based due Hysterical Injury and will be unleashed on 6th February. They will be touring to support this but alas don't come anywhere near the north of England. Well worth checking out if you get chance.

Feb 11th - Bath - Green Park Tavern
Feb 14th - London  - The Windmill Brixton
Feb 16th - Cardiff - 10 Feet Tall
Feb 17th - Bristol - The Cube

12. Ous Mal - Deep Magic's Fatal Wound (Preservation)
Some moments of magic to end this weeks Fodder. It comes from Finnish artist Ous Mal or to be more precise his new album "Ous Mal Is Dead, Long Live Ous Mal" which has just been released on Preservation Records of Australia. The CD-R can be obtained from the Preservation Records website but you had better be quick on you toes because there are only 100 copies on the planet.
