The JanglePopHub Mix (ep: #0002) – Fine Young Spanish Labels…and much more!

BTD0057jOINEDGeneral (2)

For episode #0002 of our JanglePopHub mix, the primary focus is on two young Spanish labels, Meritorio Records and Pretty Olivia Records.

The reason for this is twofold:

a)  I have purchased more music from these two labels than any others in the last 3-4 years. They are brilliant labels and if you do not love them already…you really should.

b)  The title ‘Fine Young Spanish labels’ is a play on words relating to the 80’s band Fine Young Cannibals. This has absolutely no relevance whatsoever but somehow tickled my need for wordsmith wizardry.

As such we showcase their rosters, featuring acts such as The Rainyard, Young Scum, Holy Tunics, Go Get Mum, Girlatones, Seablite, Sprinters, The Reds, Pinks and Purples, The Boys With The Perpetual Nervousness, Dropkick, Monnone Alone, The Golden Rail, Capitol, Violet Hours, Stephen’s Shore, The Roves, El Palacio De Linares and The Primary 5.

Beyond this we feature new releases that we love from Trying, Fred Fredburguer, Sachet, Nah, Monteagle, Night Heron, Van Houten, The Harriets, The Sunchymes, The Crystal Furs, The Britany’s and The Woolen Men.

We also revisit old(er) favourites from Chubz Lord, The Basement Club, Monnone Alone, Tallies, Alvvays, Lost Ships, La Vida Padre and Beeef. These are included for no other reasons than they have caressed my aural pathways of late.

We hope you enjoy this two hours of jangly goodness. Remember to support labels and acts in any way you can at present. Music has the ability to both soften hard times and make sense of them, so lets try and keep its finest purveyors alive and well !!!
