HEAVY is the theme of this week’s podcast. We know we don’t usually do themes, but sometimes we’re vibing in a compatible way. So from the Mike Patton-meets-J pop metal opener, we’re off into a dark and thunderous direction.
We have piles of drones, contemplative electronics, the avant-folk/prog 10-minuter of Yarroth, and then change it up for our patrons, who get a taste of Niger guitars-cum-Bollywood, East African electronics, and what is deemed ‘the best song of the year’ by Lankum.
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
