Yeesh, this blog’s been a long time coming. What with the fun of the weekend (i.e. Dan Deacon) and Iggy Pop on Monday night, I’m only getting around to posting this mp3 from last week’s show tonight. Apologies – particularly to Mully who’s been waiting!
We were joined last Thursday on the indie hour by the pretty deadly Ann Scott, who told us about the process of making her 2006 album We’re Smiling, what it was like to be nominated for a Meteor Award twice, and where she’s at with the recording of her next album. She’s doing just fine with that, thank you!
We played through three tracks from We’re Smiling, and one from her highly acclaimed debut Poor Horse.
Ann Scott is playing with a few musical mates this Thursday 19th of June in Dublin’s Cobblestone, so head down for that if you like what you hear on the podcast.
We started the show with Dance Dance Dance by Lykke Li – who was truly fabulous in The Sugar Club last week. We heard White Winter Hymnal from Fleet Foxes and nialler9 recommended White Denim’s Let’s Talk About It. We finished up the show with Red And Purple from The Dodos, who were also blinkin’ great on Friday night in Crawdaddy.
I hope you enjoy the mp3 – and apologies for the delay!
