And I'm back! First of all, thanks to Boab from Campfires In Winter for taking over notcast duties last weekend. I hope you've all downloaded their new album demos over here. Geez they're a beardy bunch aren't they?! Just four ill-fitting suits and broad-brimmed felt hats away from being sued by the Amish Andy Warhol Society for copyright infringement. There goes my Ohio readers... oh wait... no computers. Anyway, when it comes, the Campfires In Winter album is gonna be amazing.
Right, on to this weekend's tracks. First up, a blatant plug for the latest free Kowalskiy EP which came out last Saturday. Six great tracks from six brilliant bands, including the übertalented M A D I S O N who even went to the trouble of recording an alternative version of their single Armbands especially for it. You can get said EP#24 here for FREE. And here's the original version of Armbands to kick us off.
That is fairly amazing! As is this. It only dawned on me on Friday that I hadn't listened to, let alone bought, the French Wives album yet. Suppose it has only been 2 months since it came out...
I've since at least had a listen and it's even better than I thought it would be. And I did think it would be one of the best of the year. So I guess, logically, that must mean that it is. If you liked the sound of Younger, then you can hear the rest over here where you can also buy the album Dream Of The Inbetween. Less of this inane babble now. Let's move onto one of the best song names on SoundCloud courtesy of Edinburgh's DanDanDan, great song too.
Kowalskiy Fact #65: The third most read interview on Kowalskiy is the one what I done with Futuristic Retro Champions. Well, they're no more. Carla and Sita though have swapped roles and formed Teen Canteen. 'Tis early days, but they're sounding every bit as good as FRC! You can read all about them over here on Everything Flows.
It's about now that I receive an email from Stars with their latest single. I love Stars. I'm hoping this new single is a grower. It's no Take Me To The Riot is all I'll say. This is though, on account of it actually being Take Me To The Riot.
Last up, time to "get in the Buff"... The Pictish Trail's words, not mine. Read all about the upcoming trio of Fence Records 7" EPs over here, first of which is by Mr. Trail himself. Given that Fence don't seem to release anything short of brilliant, you'll be in for a treat. Besides, if you subscribe, you get to pocket this great Meursault remix. That's all for this week.
