  • Show 297 – Out of Suspended Animation

    Show 297 – Out of Suspended Animation

    08/01/2019

    Rising from a state of suspended animation entered in 2017, and now waking up, blinking, into the futuristic light of 2019, it's the return of the podcast that you all thought had died! Yes, here I am again to play some rather fine music and babble on a little between tracks – the same as I did in the good old days, but now just a few years further on. Forgive the rather rusty nature of the show – it has been quite some time and I'm just a little bit out of practice (evidenced by forgetting to mention what the last track played was or who it was by). In fact, the show runs to 50 minutes – which I only discovered as I was editing it last night – so it's almost twice the usual length. There are more tracks played in this episode, and I did ramble on a little longer than I'd thought I had between them; then again, there's a lot to catch up on! Hopefully you're still out there listening, despite the gap. If you are, leave a comment on the shownotes / email me / mention me on Twitter – it may just encourage me to

    Show 294 – Am I Seeing Things?

    12/07/2016

    Listen here, though I'd love you to subscribe ! Pick your jaw back up off the floor - you're not hallucinating, it IS another TFL podcast at long last. I have excuses, but who wants to hear all about them when there's lots of great music to listen yo instead? OK, I do blether a bit about what's been happening, but who can blame me?!

    Show 293 – A Quarter Of The Way In

    18/03/2016

    Listen here, though I'd love you to subscribe ! Here we go with the first show of 2016, as we reach the end of the 1st quarter. Where did the first part of the year go? Life's been busy and dealt the family a fairly awful knock, so things have all been in a bit of a tizzy. But I finally found the time to get some more great music down, interspersed with the usual waffle, to see you through until the next episode. Enjoy - and do let me know if you find any great new music yourself which you think the other TFL listeners would enjoy.

  • Show 292 – The 2015 Christmas Show

    Show 292 – The 2015 Christmas Show

    22/12/2015

    Listen here, though I'd love you to subscribe ! Welcome to the first Christmas show in many years - with the key difference this year being that there are no festive tunes featured (other than the festive intro and outros). Sit back with a hot mug of mulled wine and a mince pie or two and fire up the hifi or the mp3 player to enjoy an end-of-year selection of some of the best music sent to me over 2015. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year - see you all in 2016!

  • Show 291 – The Almost Lost Edition

    Show 291 – The Almost Lost Edition

    08/12/2015

    Listen here, though I'd love you to subscribe ! This is the show that nearly never was; it was started months back as an intended 10th Anniversary Special, but it quickly became clear to me that it just wasn't coming together as I'd intended. The more I tried, the harder it got to record - until I reached a complete and utter standstill. Struck down with podcaster's block, I couldn't make myself record any more than the first third that I'd managed to piece together. I tried many times, and got to the point where I was on the verge of deleting the file and starting over, just to get past the psychological barrier. However, with the passage of time I was able to listen through eventually to what was there and I decided it was actually a decent podcast and could be finished off as a normal show, with none of the anniversary razzmatazz that was making me avoid going near it! So, the show has finally been completed, and features a fabulous trio of Scottish artists for your listening pleasure. Watch this lot - th

  • Show 290 – The Tablet Edition

    Show 290 – The Tablet Edition

    01/09/2015

    Listen here, though I'd love you to subscribe ! Well, this was a first - a show recorded on the iPad, live, and flying by the seat of my pants! Other than a slightly fluffed vocal and soudbed coming in a little too soon at the end of one song, it went pretty well (although hearing what I said coming back through the headphones a fraction of a second after I said it was really off-putting). Still, it's good to try something different every now and again to keep you on your toes. Enjoy the tunes - there's a real feel of energy behind this week's selection. [tag]Peur[/tag] - Explosions [tag]My Cruel Goro[/tag] - Crapford [tag]Zurich[/tag] - Chemical / Menace The soundbed was 'In The Sky (Original Mix)' by [tag]Karan & Shivil[/tag] Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

  • Show 289 – Holiday Rush

    Show 289 – Holiday Rush

    10/07/2015

    Listen here, though I'd love you to subscribe ! I realised that I'm about to go off on holiday and hadn't done a podcast since May, so thought I'd better put a quick one together before you think I've abandoned you all! Apologies for the rushed feel to the show, but it was done between shopping, packing & cleaning. Enjoy the three great tracks until I get back, and do let the artists know if you like what you hear. [tag]The Kut[/tag] - I Want You Maniac [tag]Skyline Advantage[/tag] - Perfect [tag]Emerald Park[/tag] - Liberteens The soundbed was 'In The Sky (Headpockets Pegasus Remix)' by [tag]Karan & Shivil[/tag] Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

  • Show 288 – What Did I Do Again?

    Show 288 – What Did I Do Again?

    12/05/2015

    Listen here, though I'd love you to subscribe ! This week's podcast is one of those shows which really benefits from being played through a really good pair of headphones. A great selection, which I'm now encoding at a higher than normal bitrate, for you to crank up and jump around to - whether it be in the privacy of your own home or in full public view on the street or in the bus. Immerse yourself in the sheer joy of the music. [tag]Faerground Accidents[/tag] - She Makes Me Want To Die [tag]The Shy Lips[/tag] - Bahia Part II [tag]The Slow Readers Club[/tag] - I Saw A Ghost / Cavalcade The soundbed was 'He Said She Said (Offaudio Remix)' by [tag]Karan & Shivil[/tag] Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

  • Show 287 – It’s That 80s Show!

    Show 287 – It’s That 80s Show!

    03/03/2015

    Listen here, though I'd love you to subscribe ! Flu defeated, it's time for a trip back to the 80s with some eighties-influenced synth-pop from the current day. Hard to conceive that the 80s were 30 years ago, and even stranger to think back to what you were doing back then! So, put on those rose-tinted specs and come with me back to those carefree days of my teens... [tag]Filter Distortion[/tag] - Black and White [tag]Smoking Ghosts[/tag] - Dance The Disillusionment Away [tag]I, Us & We[/tag] - Lanterns [tag]Filter Distortion[/tag] - Frequency Modulation The soundbed was 'Ephemeral Living' by [tag]Zero Project[/tag] Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

    Listen here, though I'd love you to subscribe ! New year? Check. New kit for recording on? Check. New tunes? Check. Same old blethering? Hell, yeah! It's true - I'm finally back with a laptop (thanks, Glen!) and a new external soundcard to create the new TFL recording studio. As I found during the recording though, I need to rearrange my studio workspace to avoid having to lean in to reach the mic & knackering my back... I also have to apologise to The Persian Leaps, as my rustiness meant that during the recording I failed to tell you what their songs were called. All that aside, it's bloody good to be back! [tag]Peur[/tag] - Hollow Skies [tag]Seawitches[/tag] - Stars [tag]The Persian Leaps[/tag] - Fire Starter / Permission The soundbed was 'In The Sky (Original Mix)' by [tag]Karan & Shivil[/tag] Three From Leith theme-tune by Alex Aitken

    Listen here, though I'd love you to subscribe ! Well, lack of time, holidays and major computer issues have kept me away again for quite some time, but here I am resurfacing as summer ends with another wee selection of great independent tuneage to satisfying your cravings.

    Show 284 – Will It Get There?

    20/05/2014

    I’m fated to never get a podcast out when I want to. Tonight I’ve spend almost three hours trying to tag the podcast file in iTunes and upload it to the server. It’s there now, but I don’t have the time left tonight to write up the shownotes & publish it. That will hopefully come […]
