Sheggi of the Fat Tulips

Yet another assortment of pop tunes from all over the world, this time featuring The Raveonettes (who just played a show in Indonesia recently), Fat Tulips, Bunny Grunt, The Legends, 800 Cherries, Rocketship, Clover and Felt Tips. Our friends from Ansaphone have been very nice to send us an exclusive single off their upcoming album, which will be released early next year.

We also played Smiths’ “The Boy with the Thorn in His Side” as a birthday surprise for our friend and mentor at Outerbeat, Dimas Widiarto. As our very own DJ Japra was still away at his hometown, stand-in DJ Ellie took over in the most amateurish and substandard way possible. Hope that won’t spoil your listening pleasure, though – so here’s the podcast for you guys to listen!

Weekly POPcast #24, Party Hard: A Pulp Special

Posted in Podcast with tags , , on 11/11/2010 by Outerbeat

I want you (it doesn’t hurt to say I want you)
I need you (I never thought I’d say I need you)
I’ll keep you, oh yes I’ll keep you
And I’ll throw myself away, away, away
And I’ll break you because I lose myself inside you
I’ll make you fit in the space that I provide you
I’ll take you
Oh yes, I’ll take you just to push you far away, away, away
Yes you’re all, yes you’re all that I ever desire
Still I’ll kill you in the end
When it seems that it’s getting too soft
When you lapse into a friend



As a nod (a huge, enthusiastic one at that) to the band’s recent announcement to break out of their “indefinite hiatus,” this week’s Outerbeat was dedicated to the flamboyant Sheffield group Pulp.

In this show you could hear eight songs off a number of their albums, from Freaks to We Love Life, bits of Pulp-related trivia and the inevitable discussion on voyeurism and sex, which was fortunately cut short when some of our mates texted in to request songs!

In addition, we also played two songs by two Indonesian bands, respectively Jakarta’s Molenvliet and Yogyakarta’s Gelas Plastik, both of whom have cited Pulp as one of their greatest influence.

Hence – the podcast. Enjoy.

Weekly POPcast #23, last glimpses of Trembling Blue Stars and more

Posted in Podcast with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on 04/11/2010 by Outerbeat

In the first week’s episode of the month, we played another batch of recent releases from local and international bands. Having just played the Lucksmiths’ posthumous farewell single a few episodes back, this time we started the show with “My Face To The World to See”, the single from Trembling Blue Stars’ latest — and said to be their last — album, Fast Trains and Telegraph Wires.

More cheerful tunes were to ensue, however, with The Divine Comedy’s comical little ditty “At the Indie Disco” and Milky Wimpshake’s “Eyeball to Eyeball” featuring none other than Amelia Fletcher on the vocal duty. We also had the inaptly-named A Sunny Day In Glasgow (who come from the US), capricious Indonesian pop duo Belkastrelka, Finnish acts Le Futur Pomptiste and Burning Hearts (both manned by singer Jessika Rapo), as well as Ride, Tesco Chainstore Mascara, Sweater Girl, Comet Gain, and a new Indonesian band called Tamankota, whose name is an amalgamation of Indonesian indie icons Bangkutaman and Lampukota (and share similar jangly vein and inclination towards Indonesian lyrics with aforesaid predecessors).

Share and enjoy!
