Edinburgh Man #243

October 4th, 2016

Last week I got an email from Steve Palmer – he’s just released a great podcast called “Down’s With The Kids” which you should check. Steve pointed me at an article in the online version if the I newspaper which listed this show. Yes this show. Edinburgh Man. As one of “the podcasts you should be listening to”.

I mean, what?

In their defence, they did refer to it as “shambolic”. And just to prove them correct, this show is the most shambolic in a while. Marvel as I fail to be able to read the most basic text from bands websites or press releases. I have had very little sleep mind you… I’m basically running on empty tonight. But then, I do have a shambolic reputation to keep.

Blurg. I’m so sleep deprived today. Dr Nic and I thought we were being sensible by going to bed super early last night. Like 9.30pm or something. But after Thing 2’s first nighttime waking at 1.30am I didn’t get back to sleep. I tried my trusty Murakami audio book but it didn’t do anything. Eventually, I fell asleep at 6.25am. Only to be woken up 5 minutes later by Edinburgh Man Junior jumping into bed. Argh. So basically, zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

The fourth show in our exciting week of nonstop podcasts!

Tonight’s show was originally scheduled for early August, just before the final release from one of my favourite record labels – Soft Power Records. We start with a track from that release by Edinburgh’s Dora Maar. There are two other tracks from recent Soft Power releases, and a load of other great music too.

One more show to go! See you tomorrow.

ANOTHER podcast! Also, good news everyone – much more sleep was had last night, especially by myself. In fact, partly because I went to bed early, I had a normal (ish) amount of sleep. This, coupled with the fact that (at last) I’ve figured out how to make the office coffee machine produce a decent espresso, I’m feeling pretty good.

The tracks for today’s show were chosen back in July, and to be honest I’ve been rather preoccupied since then, so this is a journey of musical discovery for me as well as you. Let’s get started.

1. Kellen Bearden – “Zeitgeist” (Played courtesy of Flowerpot Records, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
2. Canopy Hands – “Seldom” (Played courtesy of Canopy Hands, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
3. soft opening – “Icon” (Played courtesy of soft opening, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
4. Trust Fund – “Together” (Played courtesy of Trust Fund, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
5. earth of foxes – “what // is // danger // anyways” (Played courtesy of earth of foxes, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
6. 50FOOTWAVE – “Ratted Out” (Played courtesy of 50footwave, Released under a Creative Commons licence)
