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!

Listen as we hear from Bruce Soord at Waterloo station on his way to Paris to begin the promotion of The Pineapple Thief’s new LP ‘Dissolution’, which is OUT NOW! It is an album which looks at all sides of the communication revolution, a close-up of distance, a record which is the equal of many classics of English melancholy. Bruce and Billy discuss the dichotomy of social media, the art of band discipline, and cheese.

 

PLUS we hear a brand new White Moth Black Butterfly remix, a teaser from Gazpacho, and forthcoming music from Nosound.

AND a reminder of how to get your ticket for our 10th anniversary party - ALSO listen out for details of an Anathema album slated for later this year…

Kscope Podcast Ninety-Two – Anathema's Daniel Cavanagh Solo Album

Monochrome is the beautiful solo album from Daniel Cavanagh, a songwriter and frontman in the multi award-winning avant-garde band Anathema. We hear from Daniel during Anathema’s world tour, talking about the advantages and disadvantages of making an LP outside the warm comforts of the traditional group dynamic.

Plus breathtaking music from Nordic Giants – who have made a film about the simple things we can all do to save humanity and (in the spirit of the project) provided themselves with their own soundtrack PLUS a return (of sorts) of chart-topping Liverpudlians Mansun.

Paul Draper, once of top-of-the-chart guitar-monsters Mansun (now producer and co-writer of The Anchoress album), has released his second single, entitled EP TWO. Hear Paul in his kitchen on his return to making records, how both his album and the Anchoress’ second are coming along, and how to get Eb to C working in a 5-bar sequence!

We also catch up with Sam Healy from North Atlantic Oscillation and Sand; NAO have released a newly curated album of their best tracks, so Sam, being a self-contained sound-designer, interviewed himself.

Plus, Bruce Soord from The Pineapple Thief took his acoustic guitar on the road across the USA opening for Steven Wilson recently. We celebrate this tour with a TPT acoustic track and a small announcement.

And, talking of Steven, this podcast is your first chance to hear music from Blackfield V, his collaboration with Aviv Geffen and Alan Parsons of Abbey Road/Dark Side of the Moon/ Pilot fame.

Lastly, we have some music from The Anchoress and Iamthemorning (both award-winners this year) from the 'rare' part of their canon.

Hello and welcome to the first Kscope Podcast of 2016.

 

PLENTY going on at the label this year!

 

We start with an introduction to Catherine Anne Davies PhD, Simple Minds’ keyboardist, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, PKA as The Anchoress for her debut album out now on Kscope,‘Confessions of a Romance Novelist’ – which is “sneaking big ideas past the listeners of daytime radio” (Q Magazine).

 

Some of the LP was co-produced and written with Mansun’s creative force Paul Draper (Catherine is currently helping Paul with his first solo album) so we’ll hear how the two met - as well as Catherine’s forthright opinions on gender in rock.

 

PLUS a track from the current album from Steven Wilson AND an update on the current Kscope artists on tour.
