Deep breath everyone, it’s time for more ferocious music than you can shake a hip at on this week’s Independent Music Podcast, with the long-awaited return of Julio Bashmore bubblin’ up to get us started.
We’re in deep on the good stuff, whether it’s cumbia music from Switzerland or jungle music from Colombia (have we got those mixed up???), or phenomenal spoken word from Aja Monet, or ice cold post-club techno from Poland, well… it’s all pretty special.
You’ll need a deep breath before recalling the artist ‘England’s Council of Legislation and Governing Body of Hyper Real Simulations and Constructs’ – without doubt the longest artist name in 413 episodes of this podcast, before acid synths take the patrons home.
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
