Every Sunday night/Monday morning on BBC Radio 6 Music from 2-3am you can hear a selection of my favourite new tunes from the BBC Introducing Uploader in an hour-long music mixtape. Some of the tunes are recommended by BBC friends and colleagues, others are handpicked by me from our inbox here at Fresh On The Net.
Each of these mixtapes is available free when the radio show ends at 3am via the 6 Music Downloads Page. You’ll also find archived episodes there from the previous 4 weeks. As of this week, the full tracklists and start times are now published here at Fresh On The Net with a link to each artist’s website. These are the listings for Monday, 20th May 2013 – an exceptionally strong week – where a great many of my favourite acts all seem to have brought out new music within a few days of each other.
Previous mixtape tracklistings can be found on the BBC website.
GUNNING FOR TAMAR – Dark Sky Tourism [START 0:13]
This stunning Oxford four-piece go to strength. Since releasing this extraordinary single last August, they’ve released a fine new five track EP for Alcopop records called Camera Lucida, which we also highly recommend. Their next UK gig is at Nice N’ Sleazy in Glasgow on May 24th. Miss it at your peril.
TANAOU – A Nursing Home In Full Swing [START 02:58]
The welcome sound of Northants 5-piece The All New Adventures Of Us (now abbreaviated into the unpronounceable acronym TANAOU) back on top form on their latest single “A Nursing Home In Full Swing”. It’s the first new track from their as yet untitled 2nd album due later this year, and there’s a great promo clip for this on that we recently our featured as video of the day on our YouTube playlist.
