Good things come to those who wait, and multiple good things are coming at once on this week’s Independent Music Podcast. We have the absolutely blistering long-awaited LP from Yao Bobby and Simon Grab on Bristol’s LavaLava, and the third instalment of Marlowe – the project of L’Orange and Solemn Brigham – is also with us this week.
Keeping it with great collaborations: Photay and Carlos Niño combine for a beautiful ambient jazz record on International Anthem, whilst The Bug’s latest collaborations record includes a stunning track from the late, great Jaimie Branch.
There’s lots more: the debut release form B U N N Y – the new project of Daniel O’Sullivan, Rose Keeler-Schaffeler, and Thighpaulsandra; the stunning dub-mystic jazz record from Serbia’s TAPAN, weirdo French pop from Usé, and much more.
You can listen to the first six tracks for free. To listen to the full episode, get a huge back catalogue of music, and access to our live shows and Discord group, please join our Patreon: patreon.com/independentmusicpodcast. The podcast only survives with Patron support
