Runaway crane (Winter is coming)
"Winter Is Coming" is maybe not the most suitable song title while the days are still long in the Netherlands and while we are still in the middle of a beautiful summer. It's a very nice new song sent to me by ElectroMush from Ukraine, so I will play it anyway, suitable or not.

Welcome back to TalentCast after such a long time. This is the 472nd edition.

My regular listeners know that I couldn’t release a regular weekly podcast, because I didn't receive enough interesting independent music to play. Today it's exactly 12 years since the first podcast of TalentCast came out, and I did receive more than enough good music in the past months to make an interesting programme for today.

I would love to make a weekly podcast again. If you also want TalentCast to come back every week, I will ask you for a little favour. All you have to do, is to find TalentCast on Google Maps ( When you scroll down a bit, you see an option to review TalentCast. You can give some stars and if you like, you can write a little review about the project too.

Because this is a one-time podcast for now, you don't have to vote, just enjoy the good independent music. All the songs are new, never played on TalentCast before. Four are by artists who have just joined the project and the other eleven songs are new releases of earlier members.
