Edinburgh Man #163

April 18th, 2014

I’m totally utterly jet-lagged. I’ve just got back from a two day work trip to the US. Basically I had almost enough time to adjust to the heat and the timezone before getting back home. And since then I’ve been largely cold, broken and passing out rather than falling asleep.

Anyway, as a result last night’s podcast didn’t happen at the normally scheduled time. So instead we have a daytime special podcast. I figured I’d be more likely to stay awake if I recorded it at a time where there was sun streaming through the windows.

On today’s show I talk about Record Store Day, play some tracks from bands who are playing at RSD events in Edinburgh, and generally ramble. Always with the ramble.

Another podcast, another series of technical cock-ups. This week on the podcast I thought I’d attempt to do a live show, however the new Internet at Edinburgh Man towers is of a lower quality than it used to be, so it was a non-advertised live show. I’m not even sure if it worked for the full 45 minutes, or if anyone listened this week. I really should figure out how I can find out that information. Anyway, no-one talked to me on the old twitter, which is probably just as well.

Music-wise it’s a great eclectic mix this time. Garage-Rock from Barcelona in the form of a new single from The Saurs on Mama Vynila Records, there’s the welcome return of chiptune to the podcast with the title track from Oregon’s astroskeleton’s fantastic “you are not alone”, and a wonderful new track from the new EP by Aberfeldy’s Star Wheel Press. Super.

That moody photo there is tonight’s atmospheric podcasting station. It feels strange to be starting the podcast when it’s (almost) still light outside. Hooray for daylight saving time.

I must apologies yet again for 1) a croaky throat and coughing which resulted in more music and less chat, and 2) it not being a live podcast again. This week the lack of liveliness has nothing to do with Edinburgh Man Junior’s sleeping patterns, rather the actions of my new evil broadband provider. The bastards.

Another pre-recorded podcast tonight on account of Edinburgh Man Junior current avant-garde approach to sleeping. In fact it’s the second of two attempts at recording today’s show. First of all I thought it would be a great idea to record the podcast walking down the canal tow-path. This was without checking the weather, which would have shown me that there were twenty mile an hour winds at the time. Unsurprisingly the resulting recording didn’t sound too good and I aborted the whole thing after 20 minutes.

The second take fared a little better. Recorded late in the afternoon before Edinburgh Man Junior was collected from nursery, all we had to contend with was the noise of next door neighbours having a bathroom fitted, the other next door neighbours small child “cleaning the stair” and vacuum cleaning going on in our flat. So nothing much then.

1. King Post Kitsch – “The Days Keep Coming” (Played courtesy of New Pleasure Recordings)
2. Sparrow & the Workshop – “One Brush” (Played courtesy of Song by Toad Records)
3. Joel Alas – “Stamps” (Played courtesy of Joel Alas, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
