Episode 41

Welcome back, it’s been a while but hopefully this is me back. We will see how it goes. I had started putting together a podcast for the World Cup, with different bands for each of the countries. I’d done most of the groups but I just never got round to putting it all together. It would have been great as well, oops.

As I write this I just noticed that I have the same Mogwai track in consecutive podcasts, I am so professional. Fuck it, it’s been that long that nobody will notice right?

So yeah, no more blabbing from me. Here’s the podcast, enjoy.

Episode 38

Work has been busy the last few weeks and it’s catching up with me, but at least I have managed to cobble together a podcast roughly on time. It’s not just music this time either, there is a poem included as well but it’s possibly only relevant to us living in Scotland. I hope it’s thought provoking anyway.

Episode 35

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.

Episode 33

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.

See you again in two weeks.

Episode 30

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.

Episode 27 – The Old Gold Special

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.

You can play the podcast by pressing play here:

Or by downloading from this link.

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.

Summer Mix

I am doing a special podcast next month where someone else will be picking all the songs (help!), so to make sure you kids don’t miss out on a bunch of tunes picked by me I thought I would knock together a summer mix that you can listen to in this lovely sunny weather (ahem). Somehow it got completely out of control and I ended up with 80+ tracks to pick from, this is not unusual for me but I thought that was way too many to shove up here. So instead I decided to do a two-sided tape/vinyl mix. Side One is called Summer Days and is a little bouncier and dancey, and then Side Two is a little more chilled and for listening to as the sun sets and you are winding down from a fun day.

I hope you enjoy them, let me know.
