As played on Phantom 105.2, Saturday October 13, 10pm-midnight

The return to the airwaves after a three week break meant a chance to spin a ton of new music. Naturally enough, there was plenty from the recent Canadian adventures – Les Breastfeeders, New Buffalo (Sally Seltmann may be from Oz but she’s signed to Arts & Crafts and she wrote Feist’s “1 2 3 4″ so there’s a lot of Canuck links), Young Galaxy, Holy Fuck, Plants & Animals and, of course, Kevin Drew – but there was also a lot of quality new Irish stuff in there too. The Cathy Davey love-in continues, but you should also check out Cork’s Hooray For Humans (cool album), Waterford’s John Haggis (beguiling album from Haggis Towers) and Thomastown’s Wax Botanical. That new Operator Please tune is hot, the single from These New Puritans is savage and Grizzly Bear’s fantastic new “Friend” EP, has a wonderfully spage-age choral version of “Alligator” on it. I forgot to bring “Magic” with me to the studio so The National’s live version of “Mansion On the Hill” provided a Bruce fix.
