On today's podcast... my ears seem to be returning to normal! Helped no doubt by the fact I've been wearing earplugs at gigs recently, including a brilliant gig with Zoey Van Goey and Withered Hand - a fundraiser for Withered Hand's trip to SXSW in Austin next week. Hopefully by the time the podcast goes live, this will all have been sorted, but at the time of recording Dan from Withered Hand's visa is held up as those with the power aren't convinced that he is an artist of extraordinary ability! Of course he is, and to prove it I play a track from his brilliant debut album "Good News" which sees a US release this month on Absolute Kosher records.
Elsewhere, there's a track from the new EP by The Dum Dum Girls, a track from another new EP by Edinburgh's Trapped Mice, and a great bit of lo-fi goodness from the new album by German Error Message.
