Show tracks for Sat. Apr. 28/12

That's the word for the night, I think. Firstly, the new Richard Hawley looks to be an album of the year contender. We feature the second track from it tonight, a free download of the title track "Standing at the Sky's Edge".

Secondly, the long awaited debut from Clock Opera was in the LP Session. Been a while in the making and it hasn't disappointed. Stay for the whole show and we'll get into the new Gaz Coombes as well, the station got a advance, so we take advantage.
Also featured some 2012 Record Store Day layovers and some new singles like Public Service Broadcasting. It's so easy for this type of project to go horribly wrong. But this EP hits it out of the park.

Show tracks for Sat. Apr. 21/12 Record Store Day

Being a British music fan, Record Store Days are always a bit of an anti-climax being in North America. For the most part, releases just don't make it over here. The fact that some are so limited makes it even harder to track them down online. This year it was a pleasant surprise to be able to pick up 5 releases today.
Due to friends sharing some of their purchases we celebrate today by playing a large selection of them (or at least versions or other tracks by the same artists).
Maybe one year I'll be able to enjoy a Record Store Day in the UK and go nuts shopping.

There were some regular new releases as well like the new Primitives single. Been waiting a while for this one and it didn't disappoint.

Show tracks for Sat. Apr. 14/12

Featured a set of tracks from the Strummerville site. They are all free downloads, you should check this site every once and a while. There are some truly great songs to be heard from bands that don't get a lot of attention. Which is the whole point of Strummerville, to give up and coming bands access to resources they wouldn't otherwise have. I stuck with the more indie bands tonight. Next week we'll delve into the reggae/punk side a little more.

Also, a new track from Yuck and 2 great new debut albums in the LP Session.
