Hi all, this week’s podcast is brought to you direct from sunny (?) Manchester, where we’ve got a new wave of indiepop emerging from the depths of Britain’s underground clubs and pretentious indie cafes. And I (Archelon) am here to introduce you to some of them. Here’s the lineup:

  • The Candle Thieves – The Sunshine Song
  • The Hot Melts – Edith
  • Raygun – Just Because
  • The XX – Crystalised
  • Let’s Tea Party – Reptiles
  • And my classic rewind of the week: Blur – Entertain Me

It’s my first podcast for Music Emissions, I hope you all enjoy it and if not I promise to keep my mouth shut from now on.

    Hey Emmy, just wanted to say fantastic job on your first podcast. I loved every track on here and it’s introduced me to a bunch of bands I’d never heard of before. Keep exposing us to these great British bands we’d probably never hear of otherwise. I think Raygun was my favorite.

    finally got caught up on podcasts, and I’m glad I heard this one. Its truly awesome when I can open my mind, and not stay assumptively jaded about generic rock. In other words, I enjoyed the upbeat melody of The Candle Thieves. The Hot Melts picked up on the upbeat in a stronger genre. I particularly enjoyed the unison vocals at the end.

    Raygun, I had heard the name in passing, but not actually heard them yet. Certainly a band worth keeping an ear out for. Funny how most Englishmen and women enjoy American vocal accents and Americans vice versa! Killer constant energy on Love Lost by King Charles, and tributing a vocal atmosphere that only BritPop can manage. Phenomenally layered bridges. I was relieved when The XX finally got down after that build up. I very much enjoyed the union and contrast of the vocal duet.

    As for the classic rewind, anytime Blur is in the airwaves I’m happy. Never have listened to either King Charles, The XX, I’m appreciative. But I’d have to say, Let’s Tea Party has the most potential for great things. Great podcast, I’m very much looking forward to your next.
