Todays spotlight is a follow-up to their last single, ‘Passing Ships in the Night’, and reportedly combines a socially aware and cynical lyric with an upbeat pop sensibility.
We’ve also embedded their excellent video for the track ‘About Love’ further below, definitely another fantastic feature worth taking in after you check out ‘Poor Folks Live’.Download Poor Folks Live HypeMachine

We’ve gone a bit dubby this week with a couple of artists from the excellent A Quiet Bump net label in Sicily. Boo Boo Davis brings us back to our blues roots and then gives it all a bit of a twist and to start a great sound from Bath, here in the UK.
Allergy – Tonight We Fly (Bath, UK)
Highs – Tonight We Fly
Tonight We Fly formed early in 2014 in Bath, Somerset, and are made up of members Jack Godby, Tom Summers, Ned French and Craig Spensely. The band seem perennially in love with the notion of true ‘indie’ music, referencing a time when the best place to hear British independent music was when it was being introduced (and occasionally played at the wrong speed) by John Peel, back in the days when BBC Radio 1 still saw a value in occasional risk-taking.
Whilst their style may hark back to the ‘shambling’ bands of British indie music’s true heyday, Tonight We Fly’s attention to detail in both lyrics and music is formidable, and cheerfully rewards repeated listens.
Their music is a welcome reminder in these heady times that the ones convictions are oft best expressed with a sad-sack demeanour and an unwavering appreciation of persistently cloudy skies.
The Bath and Bahamas connection?
A belated thanks to Jalal who left a kind comment on the show notes for show 246 a couple of weeks ago to say “Another nice one Clithers” and that he regarded Dálava as a particularly good find and that he’s looking forward to their album coming out next month. I also see that he appears to have a Bahamian connection through WildQuest who run venture swimming with dolphins in Bimini – well, there’s a happy co-incidence. The I’ve been is swimming with a remarkably inquisitive barracuda on a small reef off Long Island, way down at the other end of the Bahamas. It was pretty amazing though.
Diggin In Ya Boongie – D Mac
We See – Voodoo Tapes (Napoli, Italia)
Colonial Blend Extra Bold – Voodoo Tapes
Voodoo Tapes is the pseudonym of Giovanni Roma (aka Blob). It began in 2011 for an irresistible impulse to perform digital dub vibrations. There is no other reason why this project was born over the trance of bass, hi-hat and spring reverb.
This comes from the latest release on the excellent A Quiet Bump label in Sicily.
Thirsty Version – Hotdrop (Madrid, Spain)
Sexo Duro Chapter1 – Hotdrop
Hotdrop was born in the winter of 2004, in dark rehearsal rooms of Madrid”s suburbs, where the irresistible attraction for Jamaican rhythms made these reggae lovers take the same direction. The band grew gradually, thanks to underground jam sessions, summer recordings and amazing coincidences…Long inspired rehearsal nights did the rest. But the road is long and Hotdrop’s story suffered many encounters and farewells, until it reached the stable musical line up that currently creates its mystic reggae-dub sound.
Hotdrop have been busy lately, touring in the main cities of Spain opening for important artists such as Toots Hibbert, Slackers, Baba Toure, Heptones and heating the waves of many reggae radios across the world. Hotdrop is preparing now the tracks of their next album, so stay tuned. They are now presenting their latest record “No barriers”, a vinyl EP full of hypnotic rhythms and special vocal collaborations.

Blues On My Mind – Boo Boo Davis (St Louis, Missouri)
Bring Back My Baby – Boo Boo Davis
Boo Boo Davis is a survivor and belongs to the last generations of musicians that write and play the blues based on first hand experience of a hard life in the Mississippi Delta.
He was born and raised in Drew, Mississippi in the heart of Delta. It was the richest cotton land in the South and the large amounts of field workers attracted the best musicians from the surrounding areas. The entire Delta region was rich with blues, but the town of Drew was a particularly fertile one. Charley Patton stayed near Drew for many years and several legendary performers spent time there. Sharecroppers sang loudly to help pass the greuling hours of work and without a doubt Boo Boo developed his loud, bellowing voice based on the singing he heard in the fields as a young boy.
Boo Boo Davis used to play the renowned blues club Tubby’s Red Room in East St Louis with his brothers, as the Davis Brothers. His raw uncompromising blues sound, reminiscent at times of Howling Wolf, has been given a really interesting twist by Jan Mittendorp at Black & Tan and the Blue Acid Team near Amsterdam who explain that:
“We started with recording his vocals and harp parts and afterwards BLu ACiD created a musical background for these vocal tracks. What you hear is a voice from ‘the delta’ running into 21st century technology. Like moonshine, this music was slow brewed in seclusion during all-night-and-day marathons attended only by the two BLu ACiD members and the ghosts of the past, who were eager to have their voices echo into the modern world.”
It certainly works for me.
“Perpetual Calendar EP is the first output for Daddy Lion since morphing from a solo home-recording project to a four-piece band. Recorded one afternoon in a friend’s living room studio in Columbia, South Carolina, the EP’s three songs are a distinct and cohesive meditation on mortality set to music that deftly combines edgy post-punk and dreamy indie rock with classic pop melodies. This EP sets the stage for a new phase in the band’s evolution with bigger changes on the horizon.” [bio]
The EP is released via 24 Hour Service Station. Check out the strange (in a nice way) video below, too.
The bigger changes alluded to above apparently include a new full length album by the band.
- 1 Arthur Lee Land - Cracked Open
- 2 I Plead Irony - Timewaster
- 3 Beijing - Acrobat
- 4 Perma F - Burning Angel
- 5 Courtney Rau - New pair of shoes
- 6 Ken Kurland - Drip drop
- 7 Freds house - Fine life
- 8 Andy Palmer - The Monk
- 9 Arlon Bennett - World of Possibility
- 10 John Torres - Hallelujah
- 11 Shearer - Let Go
- 12 Bonecage - Happiest Song Ever Made
- 13 Joshua Worden - Midnight
- 14 Chad Scott - Good Times Here Today
Just a short month ago in mid-August, former LA based indie electro-pop band Letting Up Despite Great Faults (now based in Austin, TX) released their newest exceptional thirteen track release, Neon. They’ve also put up about four tracks on their Soundcloud page from the album which are currently free to download and send to all your friends.
In addition to all this they have put up a limited run of white vinyl for sale at their Bandcamp page and only have just a couple of Japan tour t-shirts left, so get them while they last. Links follow…Download Wrapped HypeMachine

Anabot is Analise Nelson. Resulting from a combination of “analog” and “robot”, Anabot is the product of a dualism, of sorts. Crafted by Nelson, she calls her experiment a “pop time machine with a rock engine”. This is from her Kiss Like A Knife EP.

JAMES M CARSON
Bolton/Manchester based James M Carson has been carefully crafting his music; showcasing a unique guitar and vocal style to a growing audience over the past four years. Carson’s music draws heavily from folk, rock, alt-country and grunge influences, primarily Elliot Smith, Neil Young, Jeff Buckley, George Harrison, and Roy Harper.
James M Carson’s impressive live shows have seen him open for Nick Harper, Mark Morriss, Evening Hymns, The Wooden Sky, and anti-folk hero Lach.
James M Carson’s long-awaited debut EP Sold As Scene is awash with echoes of 1970s Laurel Canyon. In this folk-rock setting Carson’s songs are filled with stories of dead-end towns, vagrants and personal tales of escapism.

ODi are a music making duo hailing from Ireland who combine stunning vocals and harmonies with incredibly engaging songs.
Found mostly on the road, ODi have toured all over the UK, Europe and the USA, attracting an ever growing fan base along the way. They have taken their captivating live show to an array of venues ranging from intimate house concerts, to the live stage at the London Olympics 2012.
2014 sees songs from ODi’s debut European album release ‘Maslow’s Songbook’ including ‘One In A Million’ & ‘Something Beautiful’ featured across a series of EPs for release in the USA. 2 new EP releases of brand new material follow in the second part of 2014 with an album due in Summer 2015. And of course the touring continues, the very heartbeat at the centre of what ODi do.

Joe Rhead is a musician and songwriter based in Liverpool. For the past 3 years, he has built up a steady reputation as a talented engineer and producer. Having worked with a number of talented songwriters from all over the UK, Joe has been busy in the studio helping craft some of the finest and well received records for a wealth of emerging acoustic artists.
Although writing and recording has never ceased, Rhead has been away from the live stage for the past year, choosing to work from his studio in central Liverpool. He is expected to release the follow-up to his much acclaimed debut EP ‘Growing Signs’ in early 2015.
