A very warm welcome to the first TLOBF Podcast of 2011! In this slightly condensed edition we’ll be taking a brief look at some of the choice releases to look out for in the first few months of what has already been touted as the best year in music since…. 2010. Also featured are a selection of tracks from a small handful of acts featured in our ‘Ones to Watch 2011′ list (which you can read and quite possibly complain about in full, here).
Also, a huge welcome to our new TLOBF Podcast presenter – Emily Mules. Emily is taking over from the much revered Jen Long who has sadly fled the good ship podcast due to her exciting new position as presenter of the BBC Radio 1 Introducing Show. Emily has a wealth of experience in presenting (as well as producing) specialist new music shows for radio and podcasts. Past credits include production duties on the Jon Hillcock ‘New Noise’ show on XFM, regular appearances with Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 1 and a stint as the host BBC Introducing Scotland as a stand-in to the legendary Vic Galloway. Emily is currently the ‘New Music Correspondent’ on Phantom FM in Dublin.The Line Of Best Fit Podcast (January 2011)
