Edinburgh Man #196

March 3rd, 2015

Hopefully the torrential rain outside the window at Edinburgh Man towers doesn’t get picked up by the microphone on this week’s Tuesday night podcast. It’s been snowy, cold, sunny (for a short while at least), sleety and rainy today. I was supposed to pick up the scooter today from a garage out in the wilds of East Lothian. I decided not to bother. Last time that sort of thing happened it wouldn’t start by the time I did go and pick it up. Hopefully this won’t happen again.

Enough rambling. Tonight’s show includes music from Colour Me Wednesday, a new single on Odd Box Records from T-Shirt Weather, and a track from the LP that’s on the Voyager space crafts. Yep.

The second podcast of the week! I’m not totally convinced I’ve got this thirty minute podcast thing sorted out – it feels so weird. It’s also a bit strange because it’s the second podcast using my DIY standing podcasting station – which is basically a collection of boxes stacked randomly. At any point the show may abruptly end because I’ve knocked something over in some sort of podcast jenga.

Anyway, music-wise we kick off with a remix of Wozniak’s Five Star, a new track from Brooklyn’s Arm Candy, and a whole loads more besides.

Ahahahah. I’m already regretting this two podcasts a week lark and I haven’t even started the first one. Hopefully you didn’t listen live, and instead went to see Deerhoof in Glasgow. In a spectacular babysitting fail I’m unable to go and see one of my favourite ever bands. Organisational disaster.

Never mind, there’s a packed musically eclectic podcast for you today including multiple tracks from Olympia’s G.L.O.S.S from the release of the week!

Back when I started this podcast I made it 30 minutes long. Partially because I had no idea what I was doing, but mostly because I thought that 30 minutes was a good length of time for a new music podcast. Over the years it hass grown in size to 45-60 minutes in length for a variety of reasons. However, recently I’ve been listening to lots more podcast during my commute, and I still think there is a sweet spot round about half an hour. So, as an experiment, we’re reverting to 30 minute long podcasts for a few weeks. I don’t want you to feel like you’re being short changed though, so there’ll be two a week! Starting next week. 8pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

In other news I shaved my beard off. My chin is cold and my son laughs hysterically at me.
