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!

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.
