The Show: Slowly catching up

Like I was saying on the show last week, I’m so far behind on music releases it’s just not funny anymore. I’ve missed some really good stuff over the last year.

However, thanks to Dave Imlay at Galaxy Records I got to have a listen to The Golden Awesome‘s album “Autumn” which was released November 2011 by M’Lady’s Records and must have got an NZ release earlier this year. One for all shoegaze freaks.

And here’s the playlist in full…

The show: Crazy diamonds

In lieu of having to write anything of substance, here are two lovely new videos to distract you from our writing impotence…

First up, the new Fistful of Gems‘ video “Diamond” by ex-Tiger Tones member Mark Wundercastle.

Second up, Flat Eric & William Fichtner play chess while promoting the new Mr Oizo free EP “Stade 3”.

The show: Double Retro. We get sent a CD and, apparently, it’s from 1982. Or maybe Minneapolis.

Thank you Claps and Guilt Ridden Pop – no idea how you came across us but we’re glad you did and we hope you don’t mind our loosely calling you an updated Minimal Wave band.

Whilst we’re on the subject of Minimal Wave, still no news on when or if any material from our favourite band of that period, Lufthansa Terminal, will be released but lots of information on the record label itself over at Dangerous Minds.

And that’s not the only correspondence we got this week.

Adam Macaulay of the Brighton, England duo Curxes emailed us about the painstakingly hand-crafted video that Roberta Fidora made for their new single “Haunted Gold”. Love the stonking beat and belting vocals. Modern cabaret disco at its very best! See the video below…

Anthonie Tonnon of Tono and the Finance Company got in touch to tell us that they’ll be playing a free show at Dux Live Friday 4 May with T54, Miniatures and Brown.

Which reminds me, the new EP by Miniatures is amazing. Fuzzy shoegaze never sounded so good. Unbelievably, the EP is a free download on their Bandcamp page. Fill your boots, as they say.
