Happy - Jimmy Bratcher
The travel this week is quite excessive. After last week's show I
drove over to an amazing hotel called Billesley Manor, near
Stratford-on-Avon where a two day meeting was held before driving
back to Suffolk to collect a fresh bag of clothes then off to
Stansted Airport for a flight to Palma de Mallorca. And here I am
this week enjoying a week wandering in the mountains and villages
(right) of the Sierra Tramuntana - and no car!
However, we can't let a little thing like that stop the show and
there are some cracking tracks for you to enjoy this week. The
Canadians make a strong showing with contributions also from New
York, Philadelphia, The Netherlands and Texas.
Machines - Kiss Kiss
What distinguishes Kiss Kiss, a 5-piece orchestral rock ensemble,
from its contemporaries is a unique synthesis of influences,
resulting in moody music that hangs and dissolves on shrewd, artful
song-writing. Blending analog synths, violin, distorted guitar and
ambient sounds with tight arrangements.

Forever for now - Cat Jahnke
I know I only played Cat a couple of weeks ago and I was itching to
play this track last week but I managed to get a grip and delay it
With her album None Of Those
in her back pocket, awards from a Hollywood film
festival tucked beneath her cap and nothing less than a finalist
ranking in two international song-writing competitions up her
sleeve, Cat is a versatile musician who is as comfortable on stage
as behind the scenes.
It's never an easy road for the leader of the pack. I had to
struggle with the pronunciation of Cat"s name, since then she's
given a phonetic version on the Podsafe Music Network. Ah, but then
the leader of the pack is the only one for whom the view
Cat's music is available through the PMN, just go to http://music.podshow.com

When indie rocks his car - After
After Son is the story of a late born son with major brother and
The music tells the story from the perception of the eyes, fixed in
a experimental sound.
The sound that was created is better know as a movie for your
Tayna (The secret tango) -
(New York, USA)
This NY-based band was born in the fall of 2003. Roaming from cafes
and all-night jams, to apartment parties and subway stops, the band
quickly catapulted to pulsating clubs and underground parties,
drawing a loyal following from downtown party revellers to
outer-borough-dwelling ethnic communities.
Blade - Panacea
Panacea is a cutting edge electro-fusion band from Montreal. They
are known for their ridiculously high energy live performances.
They have just recently released their self titled debut album and
will be touring western Canada as well as parts of the states this
Numbers - Pompeii
Pompeii's music is a thing of elegance and eloquence, splendor and
daring. In just over a two-year lifespan, the five members of
Pompeii have managed to construct a monument of evocative emotion,
ambitious sound, and infinite vision. The foundation is a solid
work of desire and commitment.
I'll definitely speak to you next week. If I decide to stay here in
Soller, I'll have to get a laptop organised and do the show from
here! Now there's a tempting thought...
