Lille artist Hassan K’s idiosyncratic experimental breakcore-bollywood-surf-orchestral-pomp is the perfect start to this episode of the Independent Music Podcast, which shifts through thundering club bangers, electronic dancehall, Peruvian field recordings and more.
We have a welcome return from Anika on Sacred Bones and Invada, a love letter to Nigerian pop, woozy psychedelia, bubbling heat and lots more alternative sounds.
