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!
