Edinburgh Man #229

April 1st, 2016

I like to try and do podcasts on Thursday nights, but yesterday was a crazy busy day so I wasn’t able to put together a playlist in time. Instead I collated the playlist this morning in Brew Lab while enjoying a (free) coffee. Actually, I suspect I drank too many free coffees this morning because within a couple a minutes of starting this show I had a blazing headache. I struggled to the end like a trouper though. Made easier by all the great music, including tracks from OhBree, King Post Kitch, Buddy Holliday Pegasissy, and more.

Ahh… It was a lovely sunny Good Friday morning as I recorded this week’s podcast. Slightly confused chat including me embarrassingly saying that the band “Leggy” were from LA rather than Cincinnati. So many apologies to them. I’ve just realised that because it’s the morning I haven’t had my coffee yet – so that’s the defence I’m going with.

Other music includes the new single “Kickstart” from Edinburgh’s Book Group, which is released today. There’s also a new track from that brilliant Adam Stafford album, and a track from the Second Hand Marching Band / Benni Hemm Hemm collaboration.

Well this is confusing. I thought I was being clever on tonight’s show – clever and lazy. One of the tracks I intended to play I was just going to stream from the artist’s Bandcamp page, but when I went to the page during the show they’d taken the track down! Not only that, they’d taken down all their tracks! From then on I went a bit off-piste and played some random stuff instead.

This week’s show includes a cassette release from Georgia’s Sea Ghost, a track from the upcoming Adam Stafford album, and a track from the first album by The Last Battle, on account of the fact it was their farewell gig at the weekend and I’m already having withdrawals.

2. Adam Stafford – “Atheist Money” (Played courtesy of Adam Stafford / Song by Toad)
3. EGO – “Crowd” (Played courtesy of EGO, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
4. The Last Battle – “Ruins” (Played courtesy of The Last Battle)
5. Pine + Palm – “Explain (Demo)” (Played courtesy of Pine + Palm, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
6. The Mountain Goats – “No Children (Live)” (Played courtesy of Mountain Goats / Archive.org)

Remember last week when I said I’d played the last single by The Last Battle? Well, I didn’t. It was the second last. Here’s the last one on tonight’s show, and it’s a belter. The single that is, not the show. The show is… well… you know… mildly acceptable. Also featured are new tracks from The Second Hand Marching Band & Benni Hemm Hemm, Little Big Bangs, and more. In fact, one of the tracks on the show has mysteriously vanished from the Internets, but since I plan these things so far in advance I’ve still got a copy… If only I’d taken down some information about the artist when I downloaded the track.
