This week you can hear Nou Enle ~ Seasons, Nick Tann ~ Can’t Stop Missing You, Richard Lomax ~ Set Me Free, Kinetics~ Empty Lanes, Talking Colour, The O’s Outlaw, Chuter ~ Not a Body, Anyone’s Guess ~ Apathy.
I gave a hint on the big xmas and new year show. If you want me to play a particular track then fill out the contact form below or make a comment.
Ho ho and ho!
Based in Huntington WV, Qiet is the artistic passion of Christopher Vincent, with co-conspirators James Maddox, Alasha Al-Qudwah, Lacey Hazel, Russell Snyder, Max Venoy and Raphael Godfrey, and they just released their new long player, Pet Driftwood. As Christopher Vincent plainly states: “The meaning of the album as a whole, is that often times we try to capture something and make it our property when that is far from its’ nature.” The Indie Song for all its catchiness is a parody of the current state of the indie genre where the “two chord songs with a lazy strum” are “tried and true marketing for the numb”.
Don’t you just love This American Life? But don’t you just hate it when it turns out to be a repeat from 18 months ago? Guess what – this week the Edinburgh Man Podcast is a repeat from 18 months ago.
Edinburgh Man Junior has been really ill for the last couple of days, hence no podcast has been prepared, and he’ll more than likely wake up during the normal recording time. So instead here’s one a made earlier. Really earlier.
I remember enjoying this show loads. I mean, I enjoyed making it. I never really listen back to them, so it could be awful. One thing I do remember is that I embarrassingly mispronounced the By Toutatis track. Sigh.

Manhattan-based artist PT Walkley has a new album on the way early in 2014, but outside of this new project he is also an accomplished composer for film and television, having picked up the love for certain sounds early via the medium.
“It may sound strange, but I fell in love with the blues the moment I saw ‘Better Off Dead’ as a kid.” says Walkley. “Thanks to that movie, I heard Muddy Waters’ “Mannish Boy” for the first time, and there was no turning back – I had to pick up a guitar.”
Like many modern composers, his early days were spent in bands traversing the congested NYC rock club circuit. A chance encounter with actor/director Ed Burns at a Lower East Side guitar shop led to the two becoming fast friends and Walkley becoming Burns’ go-to composer for a decade and counting, including work for Burns’ upcoming ’60s cop drama Public Morals (TNT). An adventurous composer, Walkley also writes all the music and voices several characters for hit Nickelodeon series Team Umizoomi and has crafted original music for Sesame Street.
If you like today’s excellent new feature make sure to drop a line at any of the links below and stay tuned for PT’s new album ‘Shoulders’ coming this upcoming February the 18th on Bathing Suit Music.

A Suffolk ‘n’ Cool special this week featuring the sublime Paper Beat Scissors who I first came across at a Canadian music industry showcase event in London last year. From the very start, his set was obviously going to be something very different.
His vocal and dynamic range is impressive and gives each song a special poignancy, not is a maudlin way but rather in a way that almost makes you stop breathing.
We met up before the show at the The Bicycle Shop in Norwich (relatively “just up the road” here in the UK) for a chat, a pot of tea and an excellent mince pie, only the first of which I have preserved for you. I promise you would have enjoyed the others but frankly, until we have the technology – I’ll have to eat and drink them for you
The tracks are taken from his albums Live at St Matthew’s Church and the more recent Paper Beat Scissors. both of which are available from his site.

Day as #1 is the 2nd single from CHRISTIAN & THE 2120′s new album “Different Strokes/Different Folks”. Christian Smedström is always on the lookout for new songs, constantly with a notebook around and with new riffs up his sleeve. He has over the course of 25 years moved between genres from rock, to punk, stoner, blues and indie rock, continously moving in his ongoing search and development as an artist.

Back again, in dire need of a PC that works properly when I need it to (and which won’t decide it’s having a go-slow protest any time I sit down to podcast!). Yes, it’s my usual litany of excuses for lengthy gaps between podcasts, but this week I ameliorate them with a helping of fab new music from Airbag, and a cracking little instrumental from Indoven
Airbag – The Greatest Show On Earth
Airbag – Call Me Back
Thank you for continuing to support the independent artists in 2013 by listening, feeding back and buying their music.
‘Foreign Television’ is a one-man-band from Wales (UK), currently based in Moscow, Russia. All songs are written and recorded by Francis Allen. The project was born in 2011 when Allen, who had previously recorded instrumental music under the name ‘Snowmobile’, decided to take his music in a new direction, with the addition of vocals. The first ‘Foreign Television’ full-length album was released in October 2013. [Bio]
The album is available via BandCamp on a ‘name your price’ basis.
Hosted this week by Peter Clitheroe of Suffolk 'n' Cool

Welcome to the top 10 of 2013! Justin and I started this feature back in April and we are really pleased with the reaction it’s got from you the listener. Along with this we’ve enjoyed seeing which bands/artists put in the extra work to get their track to the top.
If you are new to The JW top 10s I’ll fill you in, each month Justin and I pick 5 tracks that we are really into at the time and then let you, the listener vote for your favourite! For our December feature we thought it’d be a great idea to take all the tracks with the highest votes from the year and pin those against each other to find out who’s number one of 2013!Note: There is a poll embedded within this post, please visit the site to participate in this post's poll.

Nashville, TN based artist (via Baraboo, WI) John Paul Roney has recently released one of the best albums this year, a nine track self-titled debut that came out Nov. 22nd. We recently caught wind of one of his messages via Twitter and decided to download the free album from BandCamp.
Hard picked favorites include ‘Baby Teeth’, ‘Freshly Laundered Linen’ and of course ‘Clean Coal’, but it took several listens to even pick favorites as the album is solid to the core.
After downloading his album, make sure to give his video for ‘Baby Teeth’ a listen below, very creatively put together with some extra background audio FX thrown in to compliment the powerful visuals.Download Clean Coal
