2 Sep 2009, 14:02 by HealeyIslandDeath doth stalk the land and all is gloom and misery. Even the shops are closing early today.
Well, I'm not sure what kind of mood I was in when I compiled the playlist for AI19, but I must've been affected by the terrible summer; summer: is that really an appropriate word for what Cornwall has just experienced? Whatever the cause, be it climatic or otherwise, this week's show features music that is, on whole, preoccupied with despondency of some kind or another. Naturally, this being Analogue Island, the mood is modulated enough to allow for one or two tunes that might perk you up. But these apparent upbeat moments are only relative.
Having said all that, you can be assured that AI 19 is no damp squib: all the music is superb, whether it be wistful or darkly sinister. I hope you can listen.

20 Jul 2009, 13:46 by HealeyIslandOh yes it is. Back with a new show this Friday.
From South American Electro Punk to Robotic Nordic Amazonians, this week's analogue island is a show of contradictions. Oh no it's not.
We give first plays to the new single from Watch and a track from Barbagallo's new album Floppy Disk, dip our toes into the creative cauldron that is Sonic Weekend (would take a taste from the cauldron be a better analogy? Though the word Cauldron does come from the Latin caldarium meaning hot bath.....). Anyway - dip or taste - take your pick.
New one-hour show each Friday 7.30pm UTC/GMT. (that's 8.30pm BST)
Repeats are played out on Fridays @ 6.30pm UTC/GMT and Thursdays @ 7pm UTC/GMT..

17 Jun 2009, 16:00 by HealeyIslandDon't forget to tune into this weeks Analogue Island (9). This is broadcast on Friday 19th of June @ 8pm British Summer Time (7pm Greenwich Mean tIme) for an hour.
Some wonderfully mellow, slightly melancholic, but essentially uplifting music in the show this week. Plus one or two tracks that draw influences from Jazz and mix them with electronic and trip hop.
Definitely worth tuning in for the music and my feeble attempts to figure out how to pronounce one or two of the band names.

3 Mar 2009, 16:29 by daintyrecordsWith the release of Good King Of Cats this week on Dainty Records by instrumental outfit The Pleasure Cruisers, Dainty's been rummaging around last.fm to bring you a selection of other proponents of new instrumental and experimental music currently available for free download. Here are nine bright lights startling this particular bunny…
French Teen Idol (Italy)
Already garnering a huge response from last.fm and the wider world, FTI trade in atmospheric, ethereal surging compositions drenched in layered guitars, pianos and strings all bound together with glitchy soundscapes. The result is somewhere between cathartic and relaxing and very difficult not to like. Fans of Helios, Max Richter and even Yann Tiersen are unlikely to be disappointed, although notably in FTI’s music the beauty and sentimentality is married with a depth and sadness which this listener finds genuinely moving.
High point: Lamb
More sad than woolly

17 Dec 2006, 18:10 by SuperfunkanovaIt's been on the go since June, but last night my EP was finally officially finished and is now available for purchase and/or free download from 12rec:
It's called 'Sky Diaries' and is under the artist name of 'Crepusculum'. Although that is definitely me in the Last.fm picture for Crepusculum, half of the tracks (and thereby half of the listeners) are not mine at all, haha. There would appear to be some kind of metal band operating under the same name. Ach well.
And now for a few artists it has been compared to for linking potential:
The Album Leaf
And of course many thanks to Herzog for contributing the remix.
