Weekly POPcast #21

Posted in Podcast with tags , , , , , , , , , , on 26/10/2010 by Outerbeat

Hello !

First, we would like to say thank you very much to everybody who came to Outerbeat On Stage #1 last week. It was fantastic to meet you all! And also to the organizer, the sponsors, the venue and of course the bands: Lazy Room, Angina, Nervous, Paraparanoid and our special guest who made it all the way from Semarang, Lipstik Lipsing. You guys are great! Hope there will be a sequel!

This podcast was recorded during our show on October 20, a day after the gig. Both our DJs, Japra and Velista shared lots of stories from the night before. But little did we know, that night was Velista’s last show for Outerbeat. It was so sad for us all that on the following day she told us if she’s no longer working for Eltira FM. Who shall accompany Japra for the next Wednesday? Let’s wait and see.

So this is the podcast. We played a new single from The Hardy Boys, who just came back with an EP called Under The Picadilly Clock with Bubblegum Records. Some new and old songs then are following such from The Vaselines, The June Brides, Sportique, The Shining Hour and others (just proceed the link!).

Weekly POPcast #20, this love is as good as any other, isn’t it?

Posted in Podcast with tags , , , , , , , , on 18/10/2010 by Outerbeat

Why is it that this love we have upsets them?
Why is it that they find this love upsetting?
This love is as good as any other
Says one woman to another
This love is not wrong
Not wrong

The Field Mice – This Love Is Not Wrong

This time we played pop songs that are bringing the issue of same-sex love, as implied in its lyrics or its music video. The idea of this show started when we heard a story of how our friend was treated unfairly because she’s ‘different’ from the others. Emphasize that we just want to show our solidarity as human being with the right to live, instead of saying what is right and what is wrong. We think there are many ways to defend our beliefs, not necessarily using violence and anarchism, right?

Among those with the theme, we played Acid House Kings‘ Say Yes If You Love Me (see the video), The Field Mice‘s This Love Is Not Wrong (“says one woman to another“), The Pains of Being Pure at Heart‘s This Love is F*cking Right (obvious from the video), Jens Lekman‘s A Postcard to Nina (“Nina, I can be your boyfriend so you can stay with your girlfriend“),  The Hidden Cameras‘ Ban Marriage (“…met my angel in a suit with a smile, and as I looked him in the eye…”), The Magnetic Fields‘ Long-Forgotten Fairytale (“there’s an old enchanted castle and the princess there is me“) till The Stone Roses‘ Sally Cinnamon (“you’re her world”). And we also played two local acts that will play on Outerbeat on Stage next Tuesday, Lazy Room and Angina.

Weekly POPcast #19, The Lucksmiths’ farewell single and other new releases

Posted in Podcast with tags , , , , , , , , on 11/10/2010 by Outerbeat

“After 16 years The Lucksmiths called it a day last year and this 7″ single is their posthumous farewell.

Get-To-Bed Birds is the last song Marty Donald wrote for the band and for those with their eye on the ball they would have noted this track was previously released on The Matinée Grand Prix earlier this year.  However it’s worthy of a release on glorious vinyl such is it’s jangling charms and that oh so classic Lucksmiths sound which will be undoubtedly missed.” indie-mp3

This is our 19th transmission from Eltira 102.1 FM, transmitted on October 6th 2010. As our usual first week playlist, we played new release singles around the globe. This time we played The Lucksmiths‘ Get-to-Bed Birds, The Radio Dept‘s New Improved Hypocrisy, Bubblegum Lemonade‘s I Read in Heat She’s Wearing Meat and also a number of new singles from The Raveonettes, Amnesiac Syndrome, Twisterella, The Hope Slide, For Ex-Lovers Only and Belle and Sebastian respectively.

Popcast #19, Indiepop New Singles by Outerbeat on Mixcloud

Weekly POPcast #18, Ian Broudie-related songs

Posted in Podcast with tags , , , , , , , on 10/10/2010 by Outerbeat

Hello everyone! Sorry for the long delay in posting this podcast. Last 2 weekends we went to Jakarta to attend The Lightning Seeds‘ gig at Senayan. It was great to finally watched them live! Ian Broudie of The Lightning Seeds is also best known as a producer of many indie bands since the 80’s, besides as a performer in Care, Big in Japan and of course the famous Lightning Seeds.

That’s where the idea came up. We played songs that are produced by him like Popinjays, The Pale Fountains, The Wedding Present, The Bodines and songs that are performed by him like Care and The Lightning Seeds. And we also put two local songs that pretty much influenced by Broudie’s works.

The podcast was recorded during our show on September 29th, prior to the Lightning Seeds gig.

Weekly POPcast #17: Lipstik Lipsing live session

Posted in Live Band Session, Podcast with tags , , , , on 26/09/2010 by Outerbeat

Just like a four leave clover, it’s hard to find but lucky to have, they say. Fourth Wednesday is also a lucky day for both us and our listeners everywhere, ’cause we give you a live performance from local decent (we think) new emerging bands.

This time we had Lipstik Lipsing, 5 pieces dreamy pop act hailing from Semarang, the capitol of Central Java. Formed in early 2008, they have released a debut 6 tracks EP called ‘Room For Outside‘ a year later on July 2009 in DIY ethic. The highly acclaimed debut EP has received many positive responses around the country so far.

They played two special acoustic version of Suburban Love and Puertorico. And we also played some bands which the band consider as big influences like The Radio Dept and M83.

We also played an upcoming single from the debut album of The Hi-Life Companion, a powerpop-ish act hailing from Bristol. They will release a debut album with respectable Peruvian DIY label, Plastilina Records, late of this year.

Weekly POPcast #16 and a new album by Stellarium

Posted in Podcast with tags , , , , , , on 18/09/2010 by Outerbeat

Hello there, and back again! (no no this is not our last post, if you know what we mean)

After we did some experiments to make our podcast streamable (without necessarily downloading it), we found this Mixcloud that provides their users with no time and size limits! Woo!

So back to the topic. Around last week our friend from Singapore, Stellarium, has just released their debut self-titled full length . If you haven’t heard about them yet, then you should. They play decent fuzzy shoegazing music and currently the best in South East Asia so far. They will also release a split LP with US based shoegazer Ceremony. According to their Last.fm page, Stellarium’s album was also released under US label Custom Made Music, home of great shoegazing acts like Ringo Deathstarr, Screen Vinyl Image and also Ceremony. We will post a review about the album soon so we don’t have to tell you everything right now. Just keep updated!

And another great info about them is that you can taste the album first before you decide to buy it. Just go directly to their bandcamp site.

This podcast was recorded during our transmission from Eltira 102.1 FM on September 15. We deeply apologize that we had a power cut in the whole district that night. Unfortunately we shared the generator set with other building that was temporarily closed at that time. So this show was not finished yet actually.  But thanks God we still could play most of our playlist like Stellarium, Pipas, the Sarah’s 036 Sweetest Ache, Fat Tulips, the old amazing local twee act Blossom Diary, Cats On Fire and our next guest Lipstik Lipsing from Semarang. Hope it won’t hinder you enjoying the podcast. We promise this embarrassing accident won’t happen again!

Hurrah! We’ve just escaped from our previous host because it said it’s closing, how poor! After we did a little survey we thought this new home suits us best, so… voila!
