Limetree special on The BCB Sessions!

We’re getting giddy about Limetree Festival on the show (9pm, 24th August) and to prove just how great the excitement is we’re rolling out top tunes from some of this year’s acts….feast your eyes (and ears via www.bcbradio.co.uk and 106.6fm in Bradford) on these babies:

This many boyfriends - Young lovers go pop! (fab Leeds indiepop to start the show…I wish every week could be like this)

Veronica Falls – Bad feeling

Thomas Truax – Midnight in August

M83 - Midnight city

Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra – Cross town traffic (Playing at Limetree)

Celtic Islam – Vision (Limetree talent)

Love Inks – Rock on

Planning to Rock – Going wrong

Glass Candy – Beatific (my minor indulgence this one…taking me back to 2am a few years ago, very happy at festival)

Fruit Bats – So long (best looking album of the week – beautiful thing)

Milk Maid – Dead wrong

Submotion Orchestra – Finest hour (Another Limetree lovely)

Mini Mansions – Monk

Zero 7 – Waiting line (great stuff – Limetree 2011)

Middleman – Chipping away (any excuse to play these bad boys – fellow Limetree-ers)

And on The BCB Sessions we’re continuing the festival love next week (Wed 31 Aug, 9pm) with songs from bands performing at Bingley Music Live: http://www.bingleymusiclive.com/
