Hello, Pictish Trail, here! Welcome to Series 3 of the Lost Map Podcast - we’ve given it a bit of a reboot. We’re going to try and release a brand new episode of the pod on the first day of each month, centred around new music that we have released through our PostMap Club. Wish us luck.
PostMap Club is our membership programme, where - from just £3 - you can receive printed postcards delivered to your door every month, containing downloads for new music from the label. You also receive a membership badge, monthly newsletter and discount codes for other stuff from the label. Visit lostmap.com/club for details on how to join.
In this episode of the podcast, you’ll hear some scintillating chat with Claire McKay, aka Martha Ffion. She tells us about the making of her new album - Nights To Forget - and reveals all the details of an exclusive live session she’s recorded, entitled Captured On Cassette. The full session was filmed, and will premiere live on Wednesday 25th November - PostMap Club members will get free access, and tickets will also be available to purchase separately from lostmap.com.
We’ve also got a face-to-face interview between Laura and Mike from the band Firestations - they give us the scoop on a new series of EPs they’re releasing with us over the coming months. The first EP, Automatic Tendencies is out on November 6th, and features the single ’Small Island’ and a “sunken version” of ‘Greenmount’, clips of which you can hear in this episode.
In First Gig / Worst Gig, we ask artists to tell us about the first gig they ever attended as a punter, and the worst gig they’ve ever played as a performer. Our first contestant for this feature is Callum Easter, whose debut album - Here Or Nowhere - recently won the public vote for Scottish Album of the Year. Both his first gig and his worst gig choices are absolutely harrowing.
Another new regular feature is called THIS OR THAT, in which we ask a series of quick-fire questions on the hottest of all hot topics. The first person to take the challenge is a brand new signing to the label, SULKA. But will he choose this, or that?!!? His new single ‘Fear It’ is out now, and the postcard comes with an exclusive acoustic version.
We’re got clips of music from all the above, and there’s also a brand new track (in full!) from Clémentine March. A packed show!
