If you’re looking for unusual sounds, you don’t have to search far into this week’s podcast. The opening noise of Colombian noiseniks Chupame El Dedo (trans. Suck the Finger) is the type of tropical Cumbia you won’t find anywhere else.
Moving on from that this week, there is stunning dub music from the exceptionally exciting Bristol scene, abrasive rock music, soul music from Germany, and more synths than you can shake a theremin at. It’s a good week…
Chupame El Dedo – No te Metas con Satan (Discrepant, UK)
Sandy Lynch – Schway Dub (Avon Terror Corps, UK)
Bruxa Maria – Purple Aki (God Unknown Records, UK)
Acidliner – Die As He Pan (New Atlantis Records, UK)
Nihiloxica – Dubigwanjuba (Nyege Nyege Tapes, Uganda)
Black Midi – Speedway (Rough Trade Records, UK)
The Polyversal Souls -Feqer Feqer Nèw (feat. Alemayehu Eshete) (Philophon, Germany)
Lower Slaughter – The Measure of a Man (Box Records, UK)
Baïkonour – Urusvati (self-release, UK)
AK/DK – Defragment to Survive (Little Miss Echo Recordings, UK)

Hi Anthony and Gareth
Still loving your podcast. If you remember my last report [of course you do], I have been listening to your back catalogue. I’m now up to episode 105 and good ol’ 2016.
Anyway, as I listen more I find great commonality across our musical tastes. As such can I recommend you find a copy of and listen to the only output from a 1990s 2000s trip hop band Baby Fox.
Yes, yes, I know trip hop is soooo 2000, and no-one can surpass the reverence of Portishead, but Baby Fox and my unsung hero’s of the genre. Let’s break it down. There are some ‘bangers’ with some heavy bass cut, a significant reggae / dub influence and some experimental vignette that seem to seamlessly stitch all of the album tracks together. Production quality is up there too. So two albums released only Dumb Dumb Baby and Normal Family.
There is also a vast lack of information on the group, other than the singer [Christine Ann Leach] working with William Orbit and Beth Orton, but I think there was some larger label backing to the group.
Anyway if you like the music you play, so will like Baby Fox.
Last item – from podcast 215 – Acidliner – Die As He Pan – 2019 (New Atlantis Records, UK). Die As He Pan = Diazepam = Diazepam, first marketed as Valium, is a medicine of the benzodiazepine family that typically produces a calming effect.
