RatholeRadio 72 – 19th Feb 2012
Posted on February 22, 2012
Time for another Rathole Radio already. No guests this time just an eclectic selection of independent music, a live performance and a ton of incoherent waffling as usual. So put your slippers on, relax and enjoy the show.
- 00:00 – Houdini Roadshow – Gimme Gimme – CC BY-NC-SA Licensed – German rockers who I’ve played a couple of times before. The last song I played was called Gimme Blood, they like the word Gimme it seems.
- 07:05 – Songs Of Trees – Can I Say – License Unknown – This is taken from the Sounds Unique website. Sounds Unique is primarily the alter-ego of Kevin Osborne. He sent this via Soundcloud and I contacted him for permission to play it. There’s a videoforitonYouTube. You can get his music on iTunes and a variety of other places.
- 08:53 – MKMN99 – Dwell In Darkness (VIP) – CC BY-NC-SA Licensed – A slice of Dubstep courtesy of Pete Cogle from PC Podcast and his nose for fine music. I heard this on AMPed via him. The track comes from an EP In Dub We Trust released on netlabel EPHEDRINA. It’s free to download, though you do have to enter your email address. A small price to pay. Go and get it!
- 17:10 – Hannah Hart – Oh Internet – All Rights Reserved - A track I was tipped off to by my Linux Outlaws co-host Fabian Scherschel. Lovely tune and funny lyrics. There’s also an amazing video for this on YouTube. Hannah intended this to be an anti-SOPA song but it morphed into something more.
- 20:18 – Mutate Now – A Is For Atom (Einstein’s Theory Mix) – CC BY-NC-SA Licensed – This was an artist submission through Soundcloud. Mutate Now are from Blehlow in Germany. The Geiger counter made me think of Kraftwerk and there’s an obvious German connection but the beat is definitely not Kraftwerk, far more industrial.
- 28:26 – Hazernomical – Love Me Notts – CC BY-SA Licensed – A rapper from Queens, New York I found via Jamendo. He’s riding high in the Jamendo rap section right now and I liked this song a lot. Nice groove. Even if I’m not sure about the lyrics. You can download the album free from Jamendo and it’s all CC goodness.
- 31:18 – Shambles Miller – For The Would-Be Woody Guthrie – CC BY Licensed – Can’t remember how I stumbled across this Scottish singer-songwriter but I suspect @Kevie may be involved again. Love this song. He has a great voice and an interesting sense of humour.
- 45:06 – Mad Mav – Psycologic Warfare – CC BY-NC-ND Licensed – This is a bit of German instrumental metal with almost classical piano at times. I wasn’t sure what to make of it at first but it really grew on me. The band are from Munich and this is off the EP Catch The Bullet, which you can find on Jamendo.
- 57:55 – Abscent Feet – Poor Joe – CC BY-NC-SA Licensed – Another suggestion from @kevie, he’s on form this week. Abscent Feet are an Italian indie band from Rome and this track stood out from their EP for me. You can find them on MySpace. Their EP was released on Jamendo just last week.
