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!
