November is here and it is apparently Annual Family Reunion Planning Month (careful not to muddle the order of those words!) and we, The Beatbox Saboteurs, are ever so glad to be reuniting with our family, that's you, and you ...... and YOU! Not just because we love our listeners but because we want to share all the spiffing new tracks with you.
What's coming up? Firstly, we are extremely excited to be airing the new release from Spanish band, Uniforms. We first played them months ago when they were unsigned, but they are now signed, they have a great video out and their debut album is ready to roll. Glorious!
We are equally overjoyed to have a special session track for you from those crazy girls from Japan, Goofy18. It is a wonderfully liberated noise and comes complete with an introductory note from our Agent in Tokyo. In truth, the show almost collapses in chaos around this point but, moving on swiftly, we have new releases from previous show favourites LegPuppy, K Michelle DuBois and The Big Believe. The excellent Libertino label provides a couple of delightful tracks in the form of Accü and Adwaith, there's The Last Detail and Carbon Poppies from Elefant Records and a super-slinky track from Damaged Good's new album by Holly Golightly.
The featured compilation this month is LXXII - Volume One with Mute Tiny and AnaFxer providing some splendid beats. Further electronics come from Future Sound Of London and Julian Winding, we are also delighted to have a track from Manwel T which will surely have you bouncing around the room.
Due to the popularity of last month's experimental section, we have included another slice for you this month featuring Istanbul Hippodrome, Whettman Chelmets, Todd Snow and even the second part of our very own Life As Surface Noise debut release. A good chance for you to sit back and consider your Festive 50 options for this year.
Other new faces on this month's show with terrific recent releases are Holygram, Whispering Sons, Polly Panic, The Venus Fly Trap, English Minor, [/artist]Sound Mirrors[/artist], The Moors and Three Day Millionaires. A diverse range of rich, punchy, humorous and delectable sounds. No wonder we love recording these shows.
Please enjoy the music and welcome all the acts into your lives.

Polly Panic - Shadow Buy this track
Polly PanicPowered by Audioscrobbler™Jenette Mackie built Polly Panic on the back of an electrified and often distorted cello married to manic-depressive drums. Her vocal stylings owe as much to Sylvia Plath and Virginia Woolf as they do to PJ Harvey and Tori Amos; Mackie wails out powerfully in raw, charismatic tones. Hardly delicate, the music of Polly Panic draws heavily upon themes of powerlessness, control, fear and abuse without rejecting the idea of hope or redemption. The result is a sound truly beautiful, dark and unforgettable.

Jenette was trained classically at the Crane School of Music in New York, but chose to leave her curriculum early to pursue her own independent study with a private tutor in Rochester, NY. Soon after she began building on her vision of twisting the classical cello to a darker aspect of music. In the fall of 2005 Jenette finished work on a self-titled three song demo, which received regular airplay on WBER, the premier independent radio station in Rochester. As of May 2006 Mackie has finished pre-production work her upcoming full length, "Painkiller", and has fled the dismal wastes of western New York to make a new home in sunny Portland, Oregon.

Polly Panic invites listeners to step out of their comfortable ordinary and into the psyche they ignore. The music combats emotions from our experiences and brings all things dark & obscure to the light by putting fear & panic itself on trial. Read more on Last.fm.
