Pod Fodder (Volume Two Hundred And Forty Seven)

1. Cheatahs - The Swan (Wichita)
New single from Cheatah's taken from their impressive self-titled debut album which was released on Wichita Records a couple of months ago and should feature in most peoples end of year lists. The Swan will be released as a single on 21st July and will feature an exclusive b-side, the previously unreleased Big Wave which was recorded in the same sessions as the album. The London band have a fair few festival dates coming up through the summer.

2. Sebring - Blue Youth (FMT)
This track is taken from a compilation called Curated Vol 1 which is designed to showcase the talents of people who are to release stuff on new label FMT Records. All of the ten tracks on here are pretty damn fine and I look forward to hearing a lot more from this label over the coming months. You can get yourself a copy of Curated Vol. 1 here.

09. Stanley Brinks And Freschard - If You Have Time (Fika)
This is the opening track on the new lp by Stanley Brinks And Freschard which will be released at the end of August. It's an album of duets and celebrates under the title Pizza Expresso which fit's it just about perfectly.
It will arrive on grey vinyl in a hand made sleeve.

"Pizza Espresso is an album of love songs about drinking and drinking songs about love. Picture Emmylou and Gram relocated to Berlin with a guitar, a pennywhistle and a washboard and writing ten gorgeous duets to be sung on lazy summer evenings."
