Since I’m leaving the Model Citizen moniker behind and the new stuff is quite a big change from the old, I figured I may as well make all the old releases available for free download on the Model Citizen bandcamp page.
There’s been some really great releases so far in the series, from artists like Szymon Kaliski, Damian Valles, Listening Mirror, Ithaca Trio and more, so I’m excited to be a part of it.
Another Day The Same will be released on July 22nd.
My latest review for Fluid Radio covers Puzzle Muteson’s latest release En Garde.
Folk music derives its origins from venerable working class traditions and its name reflects this. Notoriously difficult to define, the genre’s porous borders have helped to keep it fresh and ever relevant, with such a wide range of artists as Bob Dylan, Joanna Newsom, Nick Drake and Bonnie Prince Billy all falling somewhere within Folk’s purview.

The Jesus Lizard have been on heavy rotation this week…
I was recently approached by Byron Felt, the man behind the Felt Collective, and asked to write a press release for his upcoming album. I agreed of course and below is a small extract…
Following an introduction to music connoisseurs via the four track EP Hiatus, released on Audio Gourmet, Byron now sets himself yet more firmly into the consciousness of the international experimental music scene with his first physical full-length release, No Minute Gone Comes Ever Back Again Take The Heed And See Ye Nothing Do In Vain.

Finley had his final operation today, to fix a hernia contracted while undergoing emergency treatment for gangrene.
Compared to what he’s been through, this was only a minor thing, but it was still hard to leave him at the vets for a few hours, so we’re really glad he’s home tonight and can focus on getting 100% fit again.
Christoph Berg is the very talented musician responsible for Field Rotation. Having recently brought out the superb full-length Acoustic Tales on Fluid Audio, Christoph has now released an album on Hibernate Recordings, And Tomorrow I Will Sleep.
Whereas Acoustic Tales was of a neo-classical nature, this work is marked by experimentation, drones and ambience. As you would expect from Christoph, it’s yet another immersive and unique listening experience.
Available in a limited run of just 100 CD (not CDr), the album naturally sold out very quickly but digital downloads are available from the Field Rotation bandcamp site.
I’m going to be on BBC Radio Wales tonight, on Adam Walton’s 10pm-midnight slot. I believe he’ll be playing one of my tracks and perhaps a brief mention of who I am and what I do too. I can’t share the exact playlist and time I’ll be on until the show has been broadcast, but I will be in there somewhere.
If you can’t pick up BBC Radio Wales where you live, it can also be streamed via the iPlayer.
