PMB237: Left Right Left Right (Jacqueline Taieb, Clark Terry, Kaj og Andrea, Stockholms Barnkör, Grand Kalle & L’African Team, Ivor Cutler, Henk Van Montfoort, Míša Ružicková, France Gall, Manuele Cid, Count Basie)

PMB237: Left Right Left RightIt’s time to explore the ambivalent world of the left and the right on the show this week, dear listener. We were considering doing a show of left tracks -vs- right tracks but, strangely enough, most song-writers out there seem to want to cover both hands at once.

However, we have still managed to a cajole a few nursery rhymes to do battle with each other. We also have not one but two yé-yé takes on the left and the right and there’s even an academic discussion about Indo-European linguistics to look forward to.

Shazam for birds: new app Warblr can identify songs of 220 British birds
A new app has been launched which can identify the songs of 220 British birds. Warblr, has been developed by two scientists, Florence Wilkinson and Dan Stowell, using a grant from Queen Mary University of London’s Innovation Fund. The app costs £3.99 and works in a similar way to Shazam, the music app which identifies songs playing from a huge database of tracks.

Radiophonic Workshop Cuddlesome Minimoog Synth pillows on etsy

moog-pillow

In a recent discussion/heated-debate on the tweeters, we talked over how to make Radiophonic music and analogue synthesizers more cuddlesome and enticing to young and old. And hit upon a brilliant idea, which someone has already done. So after a short period of sulking, we decided to relax and give credit where it is due.

If you like our show, you may wish to hug a Minimoog Pillow, rest your head on a pair of Big Muffs or snuggle up to a Snorce.

Ideal for snoozing on whilst dream-composing your 70s style, psychedelic moog-driven prog-opera.

PMB236: Galactic VendettaTime to catalog and file away some of the new releases which have arrived via the inter-space vacuum tubes over the last few weeks, dear listener.

We hear from some mysterious Austrians, there are a couple of tracks resulting from Alan Gubby’s deep dive into the John Baker archives, a track from Bob Stanley’s latest collection of lost film soundtracks as well as brand new music from Concretism and Hong Kong in the 60s. We also have a brief excerpt from Hull-based visionary Alan Jefferson and a Stereolab which has been lying dormant on a mini-disc recorder for nearly 20 years.

We close with an almighty new tune from fake 80s specialist Occam’s Laser.
