    Writing as it strolls along here…that Phideaux song sounds incredible. Them opening notes have a very familiar feel to it..in fact the whole song does…reminds me a lot of coldplay and porcupine tree, and of course their own unique style…those panning back and forth guitars is a pretty wicked effect…a shame they don’t like bands adding them on myspace..ah, and ‘Wearing Lies on Your Lips’ is just the right amount of everything I seem to crave in songs…etheral texture, interesting piano work, and a captivating core of the band with the guitar, bass, and vocals…I see more tracks from them on the upcoming tracklist, so this looks like it is going to be a very interesting show!

    ah then divided sky..I’ve found you have played their music over the span of your 11 shows, but haven’t made it that far in your back catalogue haha…their sound seems very defined, and sometimes almost conventional and unconventional at times switching it up with southern percussion, to almost alternative, to kind of a spacey sound..it is very unique and ambitious..never once does anything seem out of place though..the way it is all structured is quite well..

    I really don’t have an opinion on my own song..some insight to it though, it is one of the main improv pieces on the album that just have a very unique sound to it, and when I made it, it reminded me of an open field with fresh snow on it, untouched by man..just sparkling in the twilight

    okay, enough of that..haha

    the Ian Neil track is quite bright to me..it almost sounds as if it were composed for a video game at times..definitelly have to look more into him and maybe you’ll play some more of his tunes on the show too!

    The next NoSound song is quite appealing. Very ambient in sound, and very laid back compared to the other track of theirs earlier. This is the exact reason I envy your show, because I still have no money for such fine music haha. But being a Porcupine Tree fan, I can hear some of that in there…the vocals are quite different than Steve Wilson, but nonetheless, this is a very interesting band.

    the Peter Kearns is as expected very lovely. I just wish I could get the album! But everything to do with this song is incredible..the keyboard parts, the vocal harmonies..this is a very talented person!

    RG Paddler seems to be pretty laid back, but that is only from hearing one of their songs. Some rather interesting things in there, like during the electric piano solo the hipitched vocal tracks going in and out of the song..

    very cool to see some Rebsie Fairholme on this show too! and what a track it is..definitelly highlighting her unique folk and traditional music style along with those surreal vocals of hers..

    ah, then the last track from NoSound…the title track from their album which I hope to purchase soon..sounds very very well..just those opening ambient drones and textures…it really is beautiful to hear and just let your mind go free to it..this one definitelly strikes a fancy for someone who loves Briano Eno..

    still being somewhat new to your shows, Lily Green definitelly seems to be worth checking out..such a beautiful voice and just that piano and the effects it runs through eventually is quite incredible..

    haha, then back to what seems to be a favourite of yours..I’ve got no complaints with anything by Asparagus Apocalypse..always is nice to hear a refresher from them every now and then..
