i haven't got a regular radio gig at the moment, so i've started uploading weekly mixes with Mixcloud.
Because Mixcloud has a useless 1,000-character description limit, i can't provide the proper notes that i want to, so i'm going to post them here. Here's the first, for Hosking's Consisto. Download it here.
"Hosking's Consisto" was an amazing phrase thrown up by Captcha.
Track 1 from Fire EP.
Track 2 from Humansuit.
Track 3 from Flame Griller.
Track 4 from BRICKHOUSE.
Track 6 from ...Invade Poland
Track 7 from the pretty creepy, given how the story played out, but musically pretty good LP He's Able.
Tracks 10, 11, 16, 17 from Bill Mac's 2012 WFMU premium A Cappella Is Not An Ice Cream Flavor
Tracks 12, 13, 23 from Irwin's 2012 WFMU premium I Want to Be a Singer.
Track 13 is astonishing for a song written by a 10- and an 11-year-old. The full album is well worth checking out. i dare say both of those WFMU premiums are probably still available for a donation to the station.
Track 14 from Riots Not Diets Why Diet When You Can Riot? riot grrrl/queercore/etc. compilation
Track 18 is part of a longer track recorded live at The Old Hairdresser's in Glasgow in May 2012.
Track 20 from Chrome Lips.
Track 21 from Beagle Powered mixtape.
Track 22 is a Velvelettes cover from 555 Recordings' You Gotta Get More Alive compilation.
You can Google anything else for yrself. Thanks to all the artists for being gr8
