We often go full fat on the Independent Music Podcast, but with so many mammoth records on this show, we’ve had to give you morsels of the full glory. Whether that is a 6-minute snippet of 45mins of Balkan choral chanting, 2 minutes of 25 minute Indian-infused metal, or five minutes of the absolutely ear-meltingly good new record from Japanese legends Mainliner, there’s plenty of good stuff to get stuck in to.
Elsewhere, an early contender for banger of the year from Dame Area on Mannequin Records, there’s dub-infused synth music from Teresa Winter, Swedish-Senegalese collaboration as Wau Wau Collectif and much more.
