A real trippy journey on this week’s Independent Music Podcast, where we take you on a wild ride through various interpretations of contemporary psychedelia. From the exquisite vapourware of Naomie Klaus, to the epic metronomic psych experiments of Turkey’s Anadol, via hypnotic ritual chanting from Cobracoral, there’s a whole middle section of this week’s podcast that’ll take you to strange, wonderful places.
But we have plenty to shake you out of your stupor though, including Japanese footwork from CDR and riotous Belgian punk from eternal faves Cocaine Piss. We have jazz from Mourning [A] BLKstar, Ugandan grime from Ecko Bazz, lo-fi dance music from A’Bear, and much more.
