Wednesday Digest 3 (05/02/2014)

Hello everyone and sorry for last week's missing digest article - if you listened live to the show this week, episode 10, or have listened via the Mixcloud, you'll have found out that I was sick all last week and really couldn't sit in front of the computer drafting up a list of the new stuff that had been happening last week. And for that, I apologise. This week however we return to normal service! But before that, here's a few updates on what is happening with the show.
  • Firstly, episode ten is online to listen to again via the Listen Again tab on here. All of the shows are here in one place, so that is neat.
  • Secondly, you might have missed it yesterday but there is a new Spotify Playlist up with just music - all of the End of Day Tracks taken from the first ten shows (which amounts to eleven songs) can be found in the playlist, which you will find right here.
  • Also, did you know about the Monday Graveyard Almanac? Well, this is the depository of all the music played on the show so far (that is available in Spotify, natch). It is always a show behind, so you won't find the most recent show's music there, but it is updated weekly. If you subscribe to the playlist inside Spotify (or Follow It) you can get the music updated directly to your player. Pretty neat. Click here to find out more.
  • Finally, next week's show is a special edition focusing on Scottish ambient and drone just as I promised. I'll be drumming up support for the show over the coming few days, so share around the news. Coming in the future there will be Label Specific shows, a non-Scottish UK based show, a Canadian and a Japanese based show, and many more new versions. And maybe (just maybe) some live guests. Oh, and what about a show that's actually just classical music... (!)
Right, onto the Digest...

MARK McGUIRE - New Album Release
Favourite of the show Mark McGuire release his all new album titled Along the Way this week, and it is a blinder. Hit and miss in some instances, his wealth of output is just something to behold. It is available on Dead Oceans and you can stream it on Spotify and buy it from all the usual places. It's quite something.

You can stream a track below as a Youtube video titled "The Instinct" from the album.




FINALLY (big update) another EP thing has appeared on his Bandcamp page which can be streamed from there. Titled Get Me Out of Here I've yet to listen to it.

LOSCIL AND FIELDHEAD - Tour EP release and Stream
Another Monday Graveyard favourite Loscil is on tour this month and kicks things off with gigs alongside Fieldhead - to celebrate this, they've popped a new tour release titled Fury and Hecla out on Gizeh Records that can only be bought at the dual-headline shows listed below. There are a load of Scottish Loscil dates that I've highlighted below.
