NME Radio New Noise – Beach House, The National, Yacht

Thanks partly (mainly) to an LCD Soundsystem exclusive last week there was a distinct rise in the amount of listens to the show, so thanks to anyone who checked it out, commented and passed on links or recommendations to others*.

Extra special thanks are reserved for those who have returned this week, for a show that opens with a fresh stompy blast from The Fall – their first for Domino – alongside new Good Shoes, Harlem, Yacht, Die! Die! Die! and Stricken City, something from ‘Swim’, the delicious new Caribou album, plus first plays for The Soft Moon, Villagers, Cults, Planet Earth and Liverpudlians Bagheera.


And there was no way I’d let another week pass without playing the amazing Fresh & Onlys, Sunderbans and Weed Diamond. I’m not stupid.

Cheers for your lovely ears.

*To anyone who skipped straight to the LCD interview, listened, then buggered off sharpish: I’m sticking two fingers up at your narrow-minded magpie behinds, and you can’t see me.
