It's always exciting to get the chance to chat to an artist I've recently featured on the show, so you can imagine my pleasure in welcoming last week's featured artist into the confines of the OFPM's hazy hangout. Darkstar's James Young provides a timely insight into the creation of their shimmering psych masterpiece, 'News From Nowhere' in an interview I conducted via a dodgy phone signal whilst he was travelling through Italy as part of Darkstar's current European tour. I hope you've had the chance to have a listen to the album, if not, then maybe James' enthusiasm for the project will help you seek it out. Matthew Mondonile's Ducktails new LP is another great release for 2013 and I feature three tracks that hopefully demonstrate the new, fuller sound he has captured as a result of employing a full band this time around. It even features saxophone - an instrument I hated during the slick pop of the 1980's but here used to great effect I'm glad to say. Comments & feedback welcome!
