Taking a quick break from my neverending second birthday guest blogging celebrations ('The Two Year Itch'), I decided to rustle up a quick podcast. Although I really hesitate to use the word podcast here. There is no speakyspeaky here. Which a lot of bloggers still consider as perfectly acceptable as a podcast but I think it's probably more accurately, a mixtape. But with the popularity of [Muxtape], this may be a turn for the better? It's meant to be about the music and not me, anyway.
Keep Hope Inside Podcast#8 (30mb, 32.49mins)
Intro (created with samples by Michael Oster)
1) Super Tennis - Super Tennis Theme Song
A bizzarely thrilling concotion of screamo, math and indie pop.

Hypnotic Beck-like pop.
Buy his debut album 'The Golden Beatle' from his [MySpace]
3) Skyhorse - Don't Open Up
Joining fellow London teenagers White Lies in reflecting a dynamically moody eighties sound but with a more pleasing, anthemic vibe.
4) The Winchell Riots - Histories
An intense track signalling their triumphant rise from the ashes of Fell City Girl.

Epic, sweeping soundscapes a la Muse.
