I’ve discovered a problem with recording these shows in advance. Yes, by and large it means that the it’s easier to produce a regular show, but I really should write the blog post at the same time as I record it. Because I’ve no idea what rambling nonsense I talked about this week. Judging by the photo it must have been something about shoes. Or walking. Or odours? I dunno. I tell you what, I’m not going to listen to it to find out. I’ll leave that up to you.

Legs, legs and legs… IKEA legs as far as the eye can see. I’ve been building desks today. Loads of them. Did you know there are 20 screws per IKEA desk? That seems rather excessive. And why does my phone keep capitalising IKEA?

On today’s show – mostly new music with a couple of notable exceptions. You remember I made that “audiophile” podcast a few weeks ago? And you remember that I planned to make some more? Well, I never did. I only got as far as making a playlist with two tracks. One by the Throwing Muses, and one by Meursault. Anyway, I did so want to play them so here they are, sandwiched between some great new music.

3. Throwing Muses – “Devil’s Roof” (Played courtesy of Throwing Muses, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
4. Meursault – “A Small Stretch of Land” (Played courtesy of Song by Toad Records)

The podcast returns! Apologies for the absence. First of all, we went away for a long weekend in the middle of June. I probably should have mentioned this because we intentionally hid from the Internet and tried to chill out for 5 days. And then we came back amid all this brexit referendum nonsense. On the day of the referendum I couldn’t face making a podcast, and the week after I still wasn’t in the mood. All this was combined with the fact work was pretty busy up until the end of the month.

Anyway, all that’s behind us. The country may be spiralling out of control but at least the podcast is back.

Today’s show is a mixture of old-ish stuff (this will be explained on the show) and new tracks, including Kristin Hersh’s 50FOOTWAVE and Edinburgh’s Miracle Glass Company.

1. Toby Goodshank – “Paul Reiser (DJ Cleric Balls Out Remix)” (Played courtesy ofToby Goodshank)
2. Miracle Glass Company – “The Hidden Light (Radio Edit)” (Played courtesy of Vox Box Records)
3. Mark Wynn – “Polaroid stupid” (Played courtesy of Mark Wynn)
4. Great Thunder & Radiator Hospital – “Singer’s No Star” (Played courtesy of Radiator Hospital, Released under a Creative Commons Licence)

A special (ish) audiophile (ish) episode of the podcast! Basically for some anal reason I’ve recently been re-ripping all my CDs at the best quality bitrate I can (while still maintaining an acceptable size). I’ve also been going through backup disks attempting to find the original versions of many many music downloads to go back to the versions before iTunes Match crummyfied them.

As I was doing this I pondered the rubbish bitrate and multiple transcoding steps the music I play on the show goes through, and felt pretty bad. I’m not really showcasing all this great music at its best, so I thought I’d make a special audiophile episode of the show. Presented in 320kbps glory. Nothing has been transcoded here, no audio filtering or compression has been applied. Apologies for the download size!

1. Jonnie Common – “Faster Stronger Washer Dryer” (Played courtesy of Song by Toad Records)
2. Alligator Indian – “Telepathic Boys” (Played courtesy of Alligator Indian / Bleeding Gold Records, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
3. The Give It Ups – “God Only Knows Where The Time Goes” (Played courtesy of The Give It Ups)
4. Lowpines – “Give Me A Horse (Bonus Track)” (Played courtesy of EardrumsPop, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
5. Lizard Kisses – “Slow Bones” (Played courtesy of Lizard Kisses / Beko DSL, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
6. The Second Hand Marching Band & Benni Hemm Hemm – “Grandstanding” (Played courtesy of The Second Hand Marching Band)
