I’m not going to apologise for the lateness of the podcast as it should just be a given that it comes out late, I wish I had a way to remember what day/week/month/year it was but alas there doesn’t seem to be anything in existence that can help me.
Anyway, here are six new tracks and a few warblings by me that I hope you like. Please leave comments on here, facebook, or via twitter if you you like as it is always nice to hear from listeners.
See you again in a couple of weeks (well, in roughly two weeks anyway).
I can still never think of anything to write in this here piece, it’s like why do you want to read my ramblings when you’re going to have to listen to them for half an hour anyway? In fact does anyone even read this or do you all just jump straight to the play/download button? Wait, if you do jump past this you won’t be reading it and therefore won’t answer, argh it’s like the question of does a falling tree make a sound if nobody is around in the forest. Brain explodes thinking about this.
Ok that’s a long ramble about nothing, certainly not music anyway so I am going to love you and leave you and just say you can leave comments on twitter, facebook, or right below the track listings. I hope you enjoy and see you again soon.
1. Magnolia Electric Co. – Leave the City
2. Edwyn Collins – Too Bad (That’s Sad)
3. Vladimir – Untitled
4. The Knife – A Tooth for an Eye
5. Immortal Technique – The 4th Branch
6. Kate Nash – Rap for Rejection
Greetings one and all to another episode of the slideintomyhand podcast, I hope you are all well. It’s been a good month for live music, with trips to see Raime and Female Band who are both featured in this months pod at the DCA, and then through to Glasgow to see Shambles Miller, Dave Hughes and the Renegade Folk Punk Band, and Jim Lockey and the Solemn Suns. A great gig it was as well.
As ever the pod is all over the place with it’s genre’s but that’s what is great with music, you don’t have to love just one type and grow bored and insular within a single scene. So I hope the jumps aren’t too jarring and you get some enjoyment from it. Feel free to leave some comments either here, over on facebook or on twitter. See you all again soon.
I really should start thinking about more interesting things to write in these introductions to the podcast, I mean surely they set the scene and can entice new people into the podcast? It’s a shame then that I’m not much of a writer, which is why I try and do short and sweet podcasts and let the music do the talking. Wait, does that sound corny as fuck?
Ach well, it’s now written and I’m not going to change it. Anyway, here is the latest episode of this here podcast which includes 6 more amazing tracks and some babble by me. I hope you enjoy it, feel free to leave comments here, on facebook, or on twitter.
1. The Thermals – Born to Kill
2. Low Litas – New Kills
3. Sooner the Sunset – Long After I’m Gone
4. Mogwai – What Are They Doing in Heaven Today?
5. Solvent – Themogene
6. Edward Scissortongue – Rosegarden
Hello and welcome to 2013, we kick off the year with Episode 31 of slideintomyhand. It is full of quality tracks for your enjoyment, fingers crossed that you agree with me.
For the next few months I am going to do two podcasts a month, but they are only going to be around 30 minutes each so don’t worry I won’t be boring you to death. This was a suggestion from one of my listeners as they felt it would be easier to digest, let me know if this is the case. There’s a comments section below these words here, or you can find me on twitter @slideintomyhand, or Facebook. Again search for Slideintomyhand.
1. Boy – This Is The Beginning
2. Haim – Forever
3. Chvrches – The Mother We Share
4. Stealing Sheep – Your Saddest Song
5. Mark McCabe – Just Ask Nicely
6. Jim Lockey & The Solemn Suns – Morning Wake Up
So to end 2012 I have prepared a Kristin Hersh special, with music from her whole back catalogue including offerings from Throwing Muses and 50 Foot Wave.
This is an artist I have so much respect for, and listening back to all her albums in preparation for this podcast I don’t remember hearing a single bad song. Is that too much praise? Well hopefully after listening to this podcast you will be in a position to answer as I am hoping it leads you to purchasing everything she has ever done. I’m like an acolyte here aren’t I? Oooops.
Anyway, I do hope you love listening to her music as much as I do, let me know in the comments here or find me on facebook, or follow me on twitter @slideintomyhand.
Thank you again for listening to my podcast, I hope 2012 has treated you well. I will see you again in 2013 with more fantastic music offerings.
Another apology for there being a two month gap between podcasts, this time I really mean it when I say it won’t happen again. Now I better start listening to lots of new music and preparing for next month.
There’s not much more to say, so have a good month and enjoy the music. Apologies for the utter nonsense spoken between the tunes.

Welcome back to slideintomyhand, apologies for there not being an episode last month. A mixture of being busy and little internet access got in the way, hopefully that won’t happen again. It does of course mean you are more excited about the latest episode and will be downloading it in your thousands right?
This is being recorded in-between life on the road, if only it was as exciting as that sounds. I do enjoy my work, but living in hotels is dull after I while. I miss proper food, ie my own cooking. Only a month left of that life though, so no complaints.
Not been listening to much new music, need to get back into that habit especially as I have a hard drive of stuff waiting to be listened to.
Anyway enough of my waffle. Some quality tunes this month, I hope that you agree. Leave comments or tweet me @slideintomyhand.
1. Public Service Broadcasting – London Can Take It
2. Eternal Summers – Kill You
3. Human Don’t Be Angry – HDBA Theme
4. Exitmusic – The Sea
5. Purity Ring – obedear
6. Of Monsters and Men – Little Talks
7. Shellshag – Kiss Me Harder
8. Nelson Can – Do You Really Wanna Get Rid Of Me?
9. The Tuts – I Call You Up
10. The Spook School – History
11. Fever Fever – Teeth
Welcome to episode 27 of the slideintomyhand where I have tried something new and decided to interview someone and allow them to choose all the music, I hope you get as much enjoyment listening to it as we did recording it. The special guest is my friend Jay Stringer and he talks about his ace new book that is coming out on 24th July, Old Gold, along with music that is important to him and that has links to his writing. It’s a bit like Desert Island Discs but without the production values.
There’s quite a lot of information and links mentioned in the podcast so here they are for easy reference.
Jay can be found on twitter @JayStringer, whilst Eion Aaron Miller, the main character from the book, can be found @OldGoldNovel
The soundtrack that we mention is on spotify and can be listened to by clicking here (you will need to download Spotify for it to play), but please listen to my podcast first as there is a lot worth listening to.
For a taster of Jay’s writing you can get Faithless Street for the Kindle. It’s a collection of short stories based in the world of Old Gold and is available for free till 2nd July, or a measly 99c or 77p after then.
Old Gold is released on 24th July and can be pre-ordered from Amazon in paperback and for the Kindle, and in paperback at The Book Depository.
Finally, sign up to Jay’s newsletter by visiting his website where you will get lovely messages and joyful news straight into your inbox.
Thanks for listening and reading, please let me know how you thought it went as it was an interesting experiment and I would like to know what you thought of it.
