shows // Temper Tendency
Temper tendency delves into the world of all things pretty and atmospheric. Broadly ranging from ambient techno to Icelandic glitch pop to post-rock to ambient folk, this show keeps its finger on the contemporary pulse with its up to date look on emerging musical trends in these said veins.
A show as much to listen to whilst studying as it is whilst doing the dishes. Never dull and always floating, this is the show to take you some place you've never been before, but would rather be.
Email Jack on firstname.lastname@example.org with feedback, suggestions, requests etc. I'll be happy to listen.
final show ever
Thankyou for listening to tempertendency, I've had a great time and I hope you've had a great time listening. I hope I've inspired some of you to get out there and listen to different sorts of music than that thrust on you by the major radio stations.
Unfortunately as I'm heading back to Australia I will be unable to do the show next year, but thankyou all again. It's been great. Hit me up on facebook.

something a bit different
Hello there everyone,
Today I will be featuring Bonobo's new album, Black Sands out on the Ninjatune Label. Amongst some gems from this album I will be playing some hotly released tracks amongst some of my favourites. So here we go!

the album leaf - a chorus of storytellers
Hello there, and welcome to this special 90 minute episode of tempertendency where we will be featuring San Diego artist The Album Leaf's brand new long player. Jimmy LaValle started playing in the post-rock band Tristeza before starting his own solo project under the moniker of 'The Album Leaf'. This album marks his third full length album and the first recorded with a band.

beach house - teen dream!
Tomorrow's programme will showcase my personal favourite's off Beach House's brand new Long-Player 'Teen Dream. This marks the third release by the Baltimore band and has so far received glowing reviews. Understandably so, the album is my favourite so far for 2010 and will probably retain that position.
Also, good to have a listen to a few of the songs if any of you are heading down to see Beach House on February 10 at King Tut's.

le lendemain - fires
The Feature album for this week is Le Lendemain's 'Fires' out now on the home normal label. "Le Lendemain is the new project between Danny Norbury and David Wengrenn. Following on from their early collaboration under David’s Library Tapes moniker (Sketches), we find the pair delivers a more personal album of hazy dialogues."
This album is certainly 'wintery' in every sense of the word. Amongst the serene sounds of Le Lendemain I will be playing some other favourite tunes of mine.
