Radio Show: July 26th 2009 // Post Latitude, pre Secret Garden Festival prerecord, plus Competition Corner!

July 26, 2009


In the second prerecorded show in as many weeks (although not quite as blearily early as last time’s), Matt and Dionne look forward to Secret Garden, look back at Latitude, and generally bicker like bratty siblings, all for your aural amusement.

Not only that, but somewhere in the show is the chance to win one of five copies of Fever Ray’s outstanding debut album… once you’ve heard the question and googled the answer, drop us an email at and we’ll pick the winner out of a big tombola barrel that we liberated from a church fete in Aspley Guise.

Music wise, you can hear Tiga, Miami Horror, Mercury nominees The Invisible (congratulations fellows!), a Phoenix remix (oohhhh, aliteration) by Alex Metric, Golden Silvers and a vintage 60s pop track from French sauce-pot Annie Philippe.

Here’s the show then, and below that, the playlist. Have a great week!

Radio Show: 19th July 2009 – LOOP Festival Highlights!!!

July 19, 2009


Relive LOOP with us as we remenisce the best bits of the weekend. Dionne and resident guest presenter Andrea Fox hunted down some fresh meat to talk to and report back with interviews from Heels Catch Fire, Plugs, The XX, Datarock, Half Sisters, Mirrors and the ever etherial Fever Ray for your bones.  Tuck into music from artists who played as well as some prime cuts of beef from Chromeo (surely the best children’s TV song, ever!), Peter, Bjorn and John and one of our favourites, Tanlines.  Matt also gives us the lowdown on the TV On The Radio gig at Brixton. Some nerve!

Radio Show: July 5th 2009 // Independents Day plus Festival Goolies!!!

July 5, 2009


With Matt back in the coup after his Glastonbury jolly (he doesn’t like outdoor living) we’re reunited like two peas. Little did Matthew know a little gift in the form of song was awaiting him for our opening track. Flashback to a little known place called 1981 – that’s his birth year. He won’t thank me for that. Anyway, on the show this week, we salute Independent’s Day (not the Federal holiday but instead the international celebration of independent music across the globe!), salivated at the artists scheduled to appear at LOOP and Latitude 09 which are the next festivals for the diary (Note to Matt: get a waterproof tent), and rubbed our thighs with glee at the new Discovery release (album of the week). Of course it wouldn’t be right without some rare cuts from the king himself, Mr Michael Jackson.

Independent’s Day ICA gigs!

July 4, 2009

St Vincent

    With Independent’s Day upon us we’re feeling particularly excited about the week-long celebrations at the ICA. The idea is that a selection of indie labels curate a night for us to enjoy. Nice to see local label Fat Cat are representing as well as ex totallywired presenter, Marcus O’Dair in there with Grasscut (who i urge you to check out if you haven’t already). Just noticed he has a gig with Acoustic Ladyland and The Invisible 9th July at Cargo which sounds meaty in itself. But they’ll be down in Brighton for LOOP this weekend. Back to the point of this post- Independent’s Day gigs – we’re sure they’re going to be adequately brilliant. tickets via Live Nation. See you there! (See listings below)
