Nothing is ever quite how it seems when it comes to the music of the Independent Music Podcast, and so it continues this week, with Japanese grime crashing head on into no wave synth pop, beautiful danish looping vocal work, tangerine dream pop, and thundering techno – amongst others.
We have birdsong from Western Africa, untethered techno from South London, off the wall French garage rock and a whole lot more.
