SnC 111 – Wed 02 Apr 2008


A rather more upbeat and largely USA-based selection this week
after a fair few very late nights and early mornings the energy will
come in handy. Stick with me through to the end to hear teh astounding voice of Alice Smith (right).10 Cities Beyond – Snake and Jet’s Amazing Bullit Band (Copenhagen, Denmark)Picture the Danish mutant child of Booker T and The Arcade Fire. That is from their album "Someone Will Dig This!"On
their newest release, X-Ray Spirit, released March 25th, Snake and Jet
concoct a most funky cocktail that brings back the gritty low-fi
feeling of 70’s psychedelia. Don’t Worry – Sydney Wayser (Los Angeles, USA)Intimate
and playful, placid and serene. Melancholy and dark, with occasional
hints of passing sadness. This is the sound of Sydney Wayser, a twenty
year-old singer-songwriter who with her French father and American
mother has lived her life between Paris and Los Angeles. Sydney’s music
is rife with tales and adventure; it quite simply draws you into her
world, delicately.From her album "Silent Parade" on trains. www.lankybird.comWarrior Poet – Tomorrows Bad Seeds (California, USA)After
touring the West Coast for 3 years and Hawaii 4 times in ’07, Tomorrows
Bad Seeds debut album is climbing the iTunes Reggae charts and are
featured as one of the "Leaders of the New School". Track from the word of thanks from Michael Salisbury (on behalf of The Excitals) and Oregon Chad who says:"It’s
great to be back on the show again. Keep up the great promo work you’re
doing. More eclectic sounds will be posted on the PMN from DJOC in the
next few months." I’m looking forward to them.Broken Hearts Sounds Like Breakbeats – Los Campesinos (Cardiff, Wales)There’s

music elements. We bring samples of Taiwanese folk songs and
traditional music elements and mix them in HipHop to create a very
unique sound. Through our music, you can hear the voices of Taiwan.4 Apr 2008    Spring Scream Club Stage     Ken Ding11 Apr 2008    The Wall Live House         Taipei19 Apr 2008     Day Of Earth Concert
night I had the rather interesting experience of being interviewed (at
a distanced and by email) by a musician who I really admire. I’ll let
you know more about that when there’s more to tell. It did mean though
that I got to bed at around 2 this morning then I was in London for a
few hours in the middle of the day and now it isn’t even Wednesday here
in the UK but it’s OK because the Libsyn server is in Pittsburgh so
although it is almost 2 AM here, it’s only 9PM there! [update: slow
server in Pittsburgh tonight so it’s now 4.15am UK / 11.15pm EST –
going to be close!]Tonight, Tonight – The Anabolics (Brooklyn, USA)Describe themselves as sounding like The bastard child of The Shangri-Las and The Clash.What’s more:"Fresh

Blame
It On Society is J. Dodson’s solo project which was originally nothing
more than wanting to write "cheesy video game music". The project is
helped along by derelict collaborators Evan Lee Arps (midi), Ellis Dee
(guitar), Ivan Yakinov (special effects), and Dan Druff (drums). J.D.
likes to hang out, write music, and rub shoulders with strange
music-types in Phoenix, AZ and NashvilleJ.D. travels between Nashville, TN and Phoenix, AZ creating strange music with and without Religion – Alice Smith (Brooklyn, USA)Recently turned 29, Alice Smith is, on the evidence of her solo debut, For Lovers, Dreamers & Me
(BBE Records), the most promising female singer-songwriter to go her
own enrapturing way in a very long time. Her voice, with its
four-octave range, is luscious and powerful and nuanced and finely
sensitive to rhythm.Alice Smith is in Los Angeles, staying high
above Sunset Boulevard at that most iconic hotel of ripened Hollywood
sensuality, the Chateau Marmont. Someone asks Smith if she likes it there. "Oh yeah," Smith answers with zero hesitation, "I do."
