Real upbeat vibes crash headlong into musique concrète on this week’s Independent Music Podcast. From the electro dubs of Sordid Sound System to French digital dancehall via Persian electro pop of Liraz.
Elsewhere, there’s forbidden Chinese avant garde music from long-time favourite Kink Gong, the latest from Icelandic theremin player Hekla, and obscure Greek experiments.
There’s also avant metal, industrial body popping music, ferocious Japanese psych and a lot more.
