Madness. I've left recording the podcast to the last possible minute. So it's about as "live" as you can get with this sort of thing. It was also a bit of a nightmare to record. I ended up recording it under a little fort, which was quite uncomfortable, so apologies if this comes across on the show.
Back when I started doing the podcast I always recorded it on the Thursday night. But back then I wasn't so fussed with doing a proper blog post, and getting the sound levels all right. So, for the last while I've been recording the show on a Wednesday or even a Tuesday night. But, for what ever reason I've been a bit slack this week and it's all come down to the wire... anyway... let's go!
On today's show there's a track by Edinburgh band Sebastian Dangerfield. It's from their new EP which has a launch party at Edinburgh College of Art on the 22nd of this month. There's also a great fun track from the Thao and Mirah album that comes out towards the end of the month on Kill Rock Stars, and a brilliant track from Conquering Animal Sound's Kammerspiel album. Lots more music besides, and a bit of the old chat.
Oh, and this weeks Hipstamatic is The Spook School. Who played a blinding debut gig on Sunday night at Henry's Cellar Bar. If you haven't already, check out the previous two episodes of the podcast - they each have a track from The Spook School. Your new favourite band.
