Kscope The monthly Kscope Podcast is presented by Billy Reeves. A new edition of the podcast will be available each month.

In this month’s podcast, ‘In Absentia’ by Porcupine Tree gets the deluxe edition treatment, giving Billy Reeves the perfect excuse to probe Richard Barbieri, Gavin Harrison and Colin Edwin on the odds of a reunion and who is the only member of YES who was nice to them. 

Plus solo work from Jonathan Hultén, Iamthemorning’s Mariana Semkina and some Grand Theft Auto V courtesy of Tangerine Dream.

Bruce Soord’s new solo album All This Will Be Yours, inspired by the birth of his baby daughter and the deprivation in his home town, is OUT NOW. It’s beautiful (as you’ll hear) and so is the child. Bruce spoke to Billy Reeves about his methods, songwriting, and plays the recorder.

PLUS, there’s a brand new concert album coming out shortly from Bruce’s band The Pineapple Thief so we get an exclusive spin of a track from that, Catherine Anne Davies (professionally known as The Anchoress) tells us about her new Podcast series, and there’s news of some more iamthemorning dates and a track from their latest album The Bell.

Presented by Mr Jerry Ewing, the editor and founder of PROG magazine and the host of the annual Progressive Music Awards.

The magazine just reached 100 editions, so we thought it’s high time we asked Jerry to give us a golden hour of his top Kscope tracks, his memories of hearing them for the first time, their post-rock and psychedelic qualities, how they fit into the Universe that he’s created at Prog - and that time we were dancing to Danny Cavanagh’s twelve inchers…

Podcast 108 – Mansun 'Six' interview with Paul Draper

The “stupidest album ever released by a pop group” according to chart-topping singer-songwriter Paul Draper, is his own sophomore effort ‘Six’ from his band Mansun.

Does he like it, 21 years on? “It’s too early to say”, apparently…

You'll hear music from 'Six', (4-disc book-set OUT NOW) plus forthcoming BRAND NEW releases spun herein from Gong, Daniel Tompkins (from TesseracT) and a track from the new album from Porcupine Tree’s Colin Edwin – i.e. O.R.k.

Podcast 104 – Kscope's Favourite Tracks

 

Before we get in to our favourite music on the label, we listen to White Moth Black Butterfly, who have a new video and single taken from the ‘Atone’ LP, (the video was Directed by Mr Richard Oakes).

 

THEN:

Ten years of the Kscope label means ten years of the Kscope podcast; there are many folks without whom it would not be possible and they’ve all become really good friends over the years, so I’ve let them loose on the microphone and the record player, choosing their favourite music from the label.

 

Finally, the best of Blackfield (entitled ‘Open Mind’) has been released, curated by Steven Wilson and Aviv Geffen and we listen to the title track.

 

OF COURSE the podcast wouldn’t exist without you dear listener, so THANKS HEAPS and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!
