#24 – Solhorn, Balam Acab, Pictureplane, Tubby Hayes

After last week’s short podcast, Gareth and Anthony find the time in a hotel in Birmingham to put together something more lengthy and obtuse than what they’ve managed in a long time. From the old and beautiful of Dizzy Reece, Tubby Hayes and Rolf Harris, through to the ‘hottest track in Birmingham right now’ of Italy’s Husband, as well as the uber-rare hustlings of Denmark’s Solhorn, stopping off to appreciate The Slits as well as much more great new independent releases, this is a carst of sublime nonsense – just the ticket for a cold October week.

#23 – Becoming Real, Shady Bard, Mariner’s Children, Darren Hayman

Short and sweet this week, but at least Anthony’s back with a batch of records to mix it up a bit. Recorded in the noisy basement of London’s ‘The Slaughtered Lamb’, this week’s podcast brings together tropical funk, moany folk, multiple electronics and a song about bears…

#19 – Esben & the Witch, Emeralds, Glasser, Ducktails

As the summer limps to a wet close (and wet clothes for those still braving festivals), the Independent Music Podcast continues to warm the cockles. This week we bring back Independent Band RIP – the feature where we play a track from an artist no longer with us. With RL Burnside having died five years ago this week, it’s only right we highlight his genius. Elsewhere, it’s another wildly different week – garage to ambient to weird noises – it’s just another IMP.

#18 – Venetian Snares, Fostercare, Forest Swords, Dent May

After two weeks of DJ mixes, Gareth and Anthony come back together to talk nonsense and put across the best independent music releases out this week. An electronic opening gets fused with orchestral scores, disco pop and what we’re led to believe is ‘chillwave’ – but is just fantastic.

3.International Dreambeat – Adebisi Shank (The Richter Collective, UK)

#15 – Woods, Madlib, Woodpecker Wooliams, Drum Eyes
