After last week’s podcast saw artists stretching out the length of their tracks, this week’s sees some of the world’s most exciting independent artists consolidating into shorter tracks of delight. From the gabber of Lady Neptune, to the sound art of Chrome Hoof’s Chlöe Herrington, via the futuristic jazz of Polish five-piece EABS, there’s a lot to love in relatively small pieces.
Elsewhere we have a masterful release from Kenyan sound artist KMRU, reissued proto Japanese funk, phenomenal metal-cum-psych of Friend, and much more
