Plentycast #3

The first draft of the playlist had a distinct lack of newer tunes this time around and I guess the second draft does as well but hell, it's all good... However, two tracks from the just released, and frankly magnificent, Superchunk LP will go a little way to ensuring that it's not just a whole load of old skool beats. Not that there's anything wrong with that... I also hummed and hawed about putting that particular Newsom track in, what with it being 8 and a half minutes long. But what an 8 and a half minutes it is so in it goes.

Anyway, you can get on with listening to it here -

1. Buffalo Tom - Summer
2. Superchunk - Crossed Wires
3. Braid - A Dozen Roses

Plentycast #2

The second podcast then, featuring a couple of newer songs and a fair smattering of older ones too. It's funny listening back to yourself after the fact - at the moment, I'm recording the links on my MP3 player and cutting and pasting it all into Audacity, a little nod to my fanzine past I guess. I'm not that fussed about how professional it sounds (when clearly it doesn't!) but maybe one of these days I'll make it sound at least half-decent!

I'll try and do one of these every fortnight from now on, once a week from me is probably overkill and once a month a wee bit too little so somewhere in between in is that happy medium. They'll usually appear every second Sunday, the only reason this is appearing on a Saturday is because I'm not at the football today as there's no league fixtures because of the international weekend so I've got more time today than usual. So yeah, every second Sunday from now on.

One thing that was remiss of me was not thanking Iain H in the podcast for sending me the Sawyer MP3 so thanks to Iain for doing so as it was a great help. Here it is then -


1. Bob Tilton - September
2. Sawyer - Frankie & Madelaine
3. Babes In Toyland - He's My Thing
4. American Football - Never Meant
5. Love.Stop.Repeat - Storm Song
6. The Corin Tucker Band - Doubt
7. Sleater-Kinney - I'm Not Waiting
8. Withered Hand - Love In The Time Of Ecstasy
9. The Wee Rogue - I Cross My Heart
10. Julie Doiron - Consolation Prize*
11. Alasdair Roberts - The Burning Of Auchindoun
12. Nalle - Wilder Shores Of Love

*as you'll hear, I forgot the title of the LP this is from. Oops. It's from "I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day." Obviously...
