There’s a heavy antipodean influence on this week’s Independent Music Podcast, with a whole heap of wonderfully varied sounds with their roots in Oceania. From the stunning experimental folk of Maxine Funke, to the beautiful pop of Carla Dal Forno, through to ‘horrible metal from YANWYTYA, there’s a broad spectrum of noise.
Elsewhere, Sarathy Korwar’s new record gets us off to a strong start, whilst the intercontinental drones and poetry of Karen & Peter transports us to the dusky landscapes of West Yorkshire and upstate New York. For the patrons we also have underground experimental hip-hop, crazy obtuse pop from Japan’s Hitomi Moriwaki, and more.
