Owen on holiday.
This is our first appearance on a Radio Alchemy show, but we have listened to previous editions - they're usually right up my street being a fan of classic indie / alternative music. This latest one gets off to a great start with Joy Division, The Smiths then Tingle In The Netherlands. I still get a bit of a buzz when DJs play our music alongside some of my favourites. You'll also find some classic Buzzcocks in this mix but for the most part I'd say it's quite a sultry shoegazey selection, perfect for the hot weather we're having in the UK. That said, there's a bit of Salt-N-Pepa in there too; I'll fess up to owning their album on a cassette from way back when... Listen out too for a new track from Mazzy Star. Apparently this is the first new recording from Mazzy Star in 17 years. I've also got an album of theirs on cassette that was the soundtrack to a summer trip to Ireland in a combi van many years ago....but that's another story. Like I said - this is a great collection of summery sounds to enjoy in the heat. We'd like to say a big thanks to Kayla for playing our song and also for mentioning our website, Bandcamp and facebook pages. Thanks Kayla!
The mixcloud is at the bottom of the page, but before you click 'play' here's a request from the Kayla, the show's host :
Alchemists! Please help Radio Alchemy out! I entered the show in a contest where I could win the chance to go to Zurich, Switzerland and talk to radio folks. How can you help? Please go to my Mixcloud profile and listen to, favorite, and comment on my shows. To listen you don't need a profile though you may need one to favorite & comment but it won't take long. This is a big opportunity. I would be forever grateful if you can help. This MUST be done BEFORE tomorrow, Tuesday, July 23rd. So please do it now if you can! And thank you, so so much ♥.
