Adam Walton playlist and show info: Sunday 25 September 2011
This week's show is now available via the iPlayer. Please visit the link at any time between now and the start of the next programme.
Hello music hounds. Well, I'm rather proud (but not smug) about this week's collection of sonics. There's great stuff in more abundance than the quadrillions of leaves just waiting to parachute into my back garden, thus ensuring I have a bad back and a worse mien for the whole autumn.
There are début plays for Zen Zen Egui, Sex Hands (and wow! are they great), S T D, Cue Fanfare, Nia Roberts (just phenomenal, I think - real vision and a unique voice), Osian Howells and Evanjack.
Lara Catrin translates some Euros Childs for us. He loves a woman in a cave, by all accounts - good ol' Euros.
Ben Hayes plays us the finest Motown recording that wasn't on Motown and we have a rare, vintage session track from Throwing Muses to highlight their forthcoming gig in Cardiff (at the Gate on the 8 November). Tickets are available at the usual outlets. See you there!
Please send demos/new releases/gig info etcetera to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I highly recommend checking these articles out before you send your tracks. They go into exhaustive, long-winded detail about what I'm looking for, and highlight some of the things you can do to improve your chances of radio play: submitting music to the show - dos and don'ts: #1, #2, #3, #4.
Hmm - 'Dos and Don'ts' sounds a little didactic. It's more like half decent advice dressed up in flouncy verbosity.
Next week's show will feature Land Of Bingo's set from this year's Gwyl Gardd Goll.
My gig of the week is Gruff Rhys and Y Niwl's appearance at Venue Cymru in Llandudno on Sunday 2 October.
Have an excellent, music-filled week!
