Episide 357

Songs To Learn And Sing - Episode 357

This week's show featured a couple of new tunes from John Stammers, Motion Sickness of Time Travel, The Advisory Circle, The Horrors, Washed Out and Umpire. We also played three tracks from Battle of the Band's the 1968 concept album from The Turtles. X Marks the Spot by Michael Head and the Strands from one of my all time favourite albums, The Magical World of the Strands also featured.

We finished this episode with the brilliant Pour by Astrid Williamson from her forthcoming album Pulse.

 Astrid Williamson - Pour (One Little Indian, 2011)

Astrid, the Shetland born, former singer with Goya Dress, collaborates with guitarist/ambient man Leo Abrahams on Pulse. The press blurb explains: "Astrid witnessed Abrahams perform as part of Brian Eno's Pure Scenius project at 2010 Brighton Festival. Inspired, Williamson sent him a dozen demos she had been working on.  Lyrically Pour deals with affairs of the heart; musically a watery, spine-tingling piano motif weaves elegantly amongst techno beats and electronica."
