Male Pattern Band: Raining (Single, 2011)


Hubo un tiempo en que en Escocia se facturaba el mejor Pop que se realizaba prácticamente en el universo Indie. Teenage Fanclub, Eugenius, BMX Bandits, Primal Scream, The Pastels, The Delgados… eran tan sólo unos pocos de los muchísimos grupos que despuntaron en la década de los noventa. Male Pattern Band provienen también de Escocia. No digo que vayan a tomar el relevo de aquellas bandas, pero tienen algo que apunta a banda de futuro: producción sencilla, buenas melodías, canciones compactas… Raining es su tema estrella, una canción a medias entre el Lo-Fi de Pavement y esa mezcla tan peculiar de Folk-Rock que tienen muchas bandas de la tierra del whisky.

Male Pattern Band: Raining (Single, 2011)

“It seems like there are quality bands popping up in Scotland at an alarming rate at the moment, and what makes it so exciting is that they aren’t all tied to a single sound, or movement, they are spread across the musical landscape evenly. So for every 16-year old Dubstep producer like Hangman you get a band as simple, melodic and perfectly formed as Male Pattern Band. To date they have self-released two EPs of their self-proclaimed “Junkyard Pop”.  Their trademark song, “Raining”, encapsulates everything that’s great about the band: ramshackle production, big simple melodies and heartfelt and well-observed lyrics. They are young, and seem to have that ability to be able to toss off great little ditties at will. Have a listen below to a band that surely have a good future ahead of them. Unfortunately, there isn’t much in the way of info online about these guys so I can’t tell you much more, but we’ll keep an eye out and keep you updated with any future releases” (

Turntable Kitchen March 2011 Mix


El portal Turntable Kitchen ha cocinado otra nueva Mixtape para este mes de Marzo (en TJB preparamos una para el final de mes). En esta ocasión, la mezcla es de lo más variopinta y diversa, alguna que otra Remix, algún clásico (Elvis Costello), algún que otro temazo (Motel Beds) y algo de electrónica (TuneYards, Radiohead). Aprovechable.

Turntable Kitchen March 2011 Mix (2011)

“Here it is, the Turntable Kitchen March 2011 mix.  It came together surprisingly quickly, and yet I feel like it is one of my favorite mixes I’ve put together in awhile.  It is certainly eclectic, but that undoubtedly reflects the fact that my mind has been suffering from musical attention deficit disorder.  I’ve been listening to more than my usual share of underground hip hop recently (because I’ve been exposed to a lot of good underground hip hop recently) which is reflected on the mix below with great tracks by Mainframe, Johnson & Jonson (which is Blu + Mainframe), Shabazz Palaces, Phred Diamond, and Das Racist. But I also can’t quit listening to the latest albums by Radiohead and Motel Beds, and the same goes for the latest tracks from Work Drugs.  Also, I’ve been receiving some great new finds in the inbox including the tracks featured here by Hong Kong in The 60s, Alexander and the Eureka Birds.  And I’ve spent a lot of time going through old used vinyl records having recently scored a number of great records by David Bowie, Elvis Costello and The Miracles.  So eclectic this may be, but it definitely is a snapshot of what has been filling the space between my ears this month. And you may also notice that it is a relatively upbeat mix.  And why shouldn’t it be?  After all, things have been good for Turntable Kitchen recently: we partnered with our favorite print magazine (Wired) for a podcast, we co-hosted two nights of culinary and musical tribute (and our first physical events) for Noise Pop, and this past weekend we finished filming our TV debut with a segment for the Cooking Channel (we’ll be on (Food)ography!).  Sure, I’m growing a little impatient waiting for that email from Radiohead offering us the exclusive on their next album, but I’m sure it will come any day now” (
