We’re reaching into some unusual territories on this week’s Independent Music Podcast and – for a podcast that takes eclecticism to an extreme – that’s saying something. From Skramz-pop to Raï techno, Grindcore to devotional drone, there’s a lot of feast for your ears, as well as music that shall feast upon your ears.
Some classic favourite labels make an appearance, including Portugal’s Favela Discos and Southern Lord, alongside some more recent favourites with Italy’s Tuff Kong and Maple Death. We also have much more adolescent labels, including Oddball Fantasies out of Belgium and Utter from the UK. All in all, there’s plenty to love.
