Sitting between a rock and a hard place is a happy place to be when both sides are as ferocious as some of the music on this week’s Independent Music Podcast. Whether it’s the thundering opening from Finland’s Yleiset Syyt or the more outrageous metal of More Death and Horror, those rip-roaring guitars are leaving their mark on this week’s show.
Elsewhere, the thunder continues to strike with hip-thrusting power club music from the inimitable Spooky Shit label, we have the latest from superb Israeli label Raash Records, a much welcomed return for Fever Ray, and much more.
