Sounds To Have Soup To brings you something strange, something left-handed, a collection of crunchy croutons for those rainy mornings or swampy afternoons....
Contemporary folk troubadour Alasdair Roberts returns to She Said to shine a light on his current project/release, the historical Scottish recordings of pioneering folklorist Alan Lomax. The show features many of Lomax's recordings, legendary Auchtermuchty accordionist Jimmy Shand SINGING, Gaelic bird song impersonations, a noise version of an eighties Howard Jones classic… as well as some performances from Alasdair himself.
This episode features an interview with funk-wizard Devonwho, 1/4 of the coast to coast, LA / Philadelphia based Klipmode crew. And a guestmix from Portland's very own experimental beat-centric: Citymouth. Expect oscillating flourishes of flashy synthesized funk melodies and rhythms. Desirably controlled hip-hop beats, to obscurely gentle, sci-fi electronic effects and ripples.
In this episode, Codeine Drums looks back on the year so far in American rap in terms of up-and-coming artists, slept-on mixtape joints, remixes and some of its biggest (and most controversial) hits. Rap is at the heart of the show, and the genres burgeoning diversity and ability to re-invent itself only seems to grow year after year. As well as letting the music speak for itself, Lauren and Jamie discuss the appearance of rappers at Occupy Wall Street, the disparity between their motivations to be seen as part of the movement and their creative output, the use of 'The N Word' by white rappers and the shock near-death of Rick Ross.
This episode serves as an introduction to 3 producers. Constrobuz, a beat maker from North Carolina who favours the orchestral and soulful; DJ AKEERA, a mysterious producer in Glasgow, who has chosen to remain anonymous and Melvin, who makes some very polished UK Juke and is the first UK dude to have a release on Ghettophiles.
It’s a juke heavy, ghettotech-tastic 160 bpm thriller of an episode sitting alongside a complexion of desirable beats and ethereal climates. Intimate lyrics, dazed and dizzying rhythms which all compellingly have a poignant and heat warming soulful touch to them.
Nothing but rare and pristine selections from Gilbert and Acky, the men behind The Pineapple Soul and Granite City Soul Club - premier soul music collectors. Acky Buchan promotes the Granite City soul Club along with two friends and was a regular guest at the legendary Shotts all nighters at the Allanton miners' welfare club. He's a fan of up tempo sixties soul and rare and underplayed oldies. Gilbert Denny is a friend of Soulful Allsorts and emails us when he's not at Cappielow. He along with several friends runs the Pineapple Soul Club flying the flag for soul in the West of Scotland. Listen up.
This sprawling, two hour special of Source Tags & Mixtapes has its focus dead-set on the Enemies List Home Recordings label. Based in Connecticut, USA, the label produces limited runs of CDs, vinyl and tapes by a talented bunch who make bedroom music touching on such genres as post-punk and shoegaze (Have a Nice Life), gloomy drone (Planning for Burial), echo-chamber Americana (Dweller on the Threshold) and, er, agricultural synth-pop (America Addio). Spliced between the music is an exclusive, in-depth interview with label founder Dan Barrett, who discusses the beginnings of Enemies List, its ideology, and the uncertain future of the music industry.
