The usual rollercoaster of sounds on this week’s Independent Music Podcast, from The Soft Moon’s Luis Vasquez’s stunning step into releasing music under his own name through to delicate experimental folk from Japan.
In the space between there’s dark electro from Italy, abrasive noise from Merzbow-collaborator Kentaro Hayashi, acid from Tel Aviv, the latest on the mesmerising Takuroku label and more.
