David Turpin by Mark Duggan / White Noise Visuals
The rather lovely David Turpin joined us a few weeks back on the 19th of June to talk about his album The Sweet Used To Be. The soft-spoken Dubliner told us about supporting Cathy Davey the following night in The Olympia, about recording his debut album in a way that he was finally content with after four or five years of trial and error, and about his July residency of Whelan’s. David Turpin is upstairs in Whelan’s every Wednesday for this month, and check out his myspace to find out more details on that.
As well as listening to a few tracks from David’s album, we started the show with Christopher & Andy from Jape’s Ritual. We also listened to Ann Scott’s Mountain from her album We’re Smiling, we heard Little Messy from Grand Pocket Orchestra, and nialler9 recommended Pivot’s In The Blood from the Aussie’s Oh Soundtrack My Heart album. We finished up the show from Something Global, a taster from the anticipated debut album from our old friends Fight Like Apes. Fight Like Apes will be returning to the indie hour this Thursday 17th of July, so do tune in for that. In the meantime, you can have a listen to the Apes on the show last year, and you can download our interview with David Turpin below. Enjoy!
