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 #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!
