Howth


Vodpod videos no longer available.

Part two of round-up day on MFAGW comes in the form of my Christmas Day show for DIY Radio, a (mercifully for some, I’m sure) mostly presenter-free episode where I played a stream of my favourite Folk Bloke tracks of the year. If nothing else, it’s a bloody good line-up of music – Bill Callahan, Alessi’s Ark, Saintseneca, Rob St. John and, obviously Josh T. Pearson all make appearances. If you want an hour of delightful music to reminisce on, stick it on and lay back.


Josh T. Pearson – Thou Art Loosed!

This is a week late, but technically it doesn’t matter because my computer exploded violently this week and so I didn’t do a show. There are a fair few new bands’ tracks on last week’s show and, whilst I urge you to listen to me talk about them, I thought I’d give them some extra airing as the appendix to this post. As such, I will only be offering blanket criticism to all of them, and in order to learn more about my thoughts, you have to listen to this week’s show. Clever, eh?

All of these tracks are “well good”.
