I'm Not in Love

In the past two year I've always produced a "special" podcast for the Eurovision weekend. Lordi moved me to do the first one and I was too deep into it last year not to do it again. This year I'm putting a stop to it, even if (professionally) I can't ignore this phenomenal annual media circus completely. In any case, I've blogged more than enough about it this year, so now it's (almost) time to turn my attention to other things.

Ironically, perhaps, this week's podcast opens with a track from Ira Losco's new album. Fortune Teller is her 3rd CD and it will be released on the 14th of June at Sky Club in Paceville. Idle Motion is the song from this album that I've selected as the first one for the 115th podcast in the weekly Mużika Mod Ieħor series.

Another new album to be released in the coming week's is the debut solo album from Sharleen Spiteri. She is probably best known as the singer from the Glaswegian rock band Texas, for the last twenty odd years. Sharleen qualifies for inclusion on the MMI podcast because her father is Maltese. The album is called Melody and it comes out on the 14th of July. A single called All The Times I Cried has already been released from it but I've chosen to play That Was A Lie, a promotional track that her record company is giving away as a free download.

Victoria Spiteri is an unknown London-based songwriter who has recently moved to Malta and is now seeking representation and a publishing deal. She recently released a couple of demo recording on her MySpace page. I first heard them a few days ago and I liked them enough to want to include one of them on my podcast as soon as possible. Every Time's the Last Time I picked for my podcast listeners to sample.

As I was putting this week's podcast together I realized that I had played three song in a row from female singers for no particular reason. I also couldn't fail to observe that the tone and mood because somewhat calmer and more sophisticated than it has been over the last few podcasts. So to counter all this, I chose to close this week's podcast with a song called Jipapej by the ever-entertaining Fakawi. I think I'll leave it all there until the next edition.
