Melodic Randomiser Isolation Radio day forty eight.

Hello again, welcome to the whatever-the-hell-day-it-is edition of the Isolation Radio show and our final week of tunes selected by the Melodic Randomiser.

First on the air today is James Yuill and a track from his These Spirits album, this is “Space Race”

Closely followed by the very peculiar Animal Collective and their album Painting With, here’s a song called “FloriDada”

And bringing up the rear, we have something from the original soundtrack of True Blood, this is the theme song by Jace Everett, the low down and dirty “Bad Things”

What a great threesome to add some spring to your…Tuesday(?) step.

See you tomorrow for more.

Let’s be careful out there.



Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day forty.

They say that life begins at 40 but the Isolation Radio show has been full of life all along, today being no exception, thanks to the efforts of the Melodic Randomiser.

Bibio is our first act today, providing us with a taste of his unique blend of experimental folktronica, in the form of “Take Off Your Shirt”, from the Mind Bokeh album

Then we have something by Moby and the Void Pacific Choir; a track from their debut album, These Systems are Failing, this is the official video for “Are You Lost in the World Like Me?”

And we finish up with an old classic from Vangelis; here he is with the timeless “Spiral”, from the album of the same name.

More tomorrow, I hope you can join me. In the meantime, keep up the good fight and keep looking out for each other.



Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day thirty two.

Into the second full month of the Isolation Radio show now and the Melodic Randomiser has picked a real corker to start us off today.

The world lost a great rock and roll star when Malcolm Young died three years ago, but “If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)” is him and his brother Angus at their thundering best. Here’s AC/DC, from the classic 1979 album, Highway to Hell

Taking a hard left turn away from heavy riffing now, with some gentle string quartet accompaniment to David Byrne‘s “Finite=Alright” from 1997’s Feelings album.

And staying with a more chilled vibe to end today’s playlist, here’s a song from 2016 by Australian synth-pop duo, Empire of the Sun, this is “There’s No Need” and its rather nicely made unofficial video, from the Two Vines album.

That should leave you both invigorated and relaxed, enabling you to enjoy the rest of your Sunday and look forward to more tunes tomorrow.

Have a lovely day and be groovy to each other.



Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day twenty nine.

As we enter week five of the Isolation Radio show, the sun is still shining, the birds are still singing and the Melodic Randomiser is still churning out some banging tunes, the first of which is by The Smiths.

This track is from the essential Hatful of Hollow album, from a 1983 John Peel session, this is “Handsome Devil”

Next up, a song I originally discovered on a free NME cassette compilation, back in 1988, this is the fabulous Ghost Dance and “Grip of Love”, from the Gathering Dust album.

And we’re finishing off today with a stone cold, solid gold, broke the mould perfect pop classic from ex-Eagle, Don Henley, here’s 1984’s sublime “Boys of Summer”

And with that, I’m outta here, be good to each other and I’ll see y’all tomorrow.



Melodic Randomiser: Isolation Radio, day eighteen.

Sunday, day of rest, but not for the wicked and I have some wicked tunes coming up for you on the Isolation Radio show today, so let’s fire up the Melodic Randomiser and get to it.

A noisy bit of 1995 shoegaze for you first; from the Methodrone album, here’s The Brian Jonestown Massacre and “Evergreen”

Then a spot of UK electropop, courtesy of Fenech-Soler, a track from 2013’s Rituals, along with its cleverly edited video, here’s “Last Forever”

Bringing up the rear of this 18th outing for the Randomiser is a song from an album by Green on Red called Gas Food Lodging. Here is the hopeful and optimistic “We Shall Overcome”

So that’s another show done and dusted, I’ll have more for you tomorrow and I’ll bid you a fond farewell.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and I will see you for the Cosmic Photo Challenge in the morning.
