    Wanderlust Podcast on iTunes

    Chris Daniel Apr 13 '06 3

    Another post about music. Anyone would think I was avoiding work...

    This one is about free music, something fresh to listen to while slaving away those long hours before the final crits.

    I just got an e-mail from a mate of mine who's in a band called Wanderlust (he's Jack - the lead singer - we were at school together for 5 years). They're really good and are the only band I know that I listen to out of pleasure, rather than just duty.

    Anyway, they've just released a podcast of a live set and it's available on iTunes (definitely iTunes UK, hopefully all the other iTunes too, please let me know if it's not accessible). Go to the podcast directory and search for "wanderlust". They'll appear as one of the "authors" in the music category. Download the podcast and let me know what you think. It's free.

    If you like what you hear, maybe also check out their MySpace and Pulse Rated pages.

    Let me know what you think of it all and I'll pass on the word.

      not bad, quite listenable - but they need to record and master the vocals much better, although I'm sure they realise this.

      Yeah, I think they're aware of the limitations of their recordings thus far. They did an EP a while back and that was quite well made. Obviously the podcast is just recorded straight from the desk during a live set and was adjusted for the crowd, not the recording.

      They're really good live, but I guess you'll have to take my word for it. "Listenable" is defintely the word.

      ah, well that makes more sense then - and I know from messing about with music for a while (to no great end thus far) how hard it is to get recordings/EQ/Compression etc. etc. right - although I have a suspicion some of that is talked about so much just to try and put you off doing it yourself!

      Bit like architecture in a way ;-)
