#29 – Tobacco, Ritualzz, Euros Childs, Bardo Pond

Possibly too much 80s influence here, with lots of synths, and a song from Adam & Joe influenced by the 80s. Don’t worry though, there is plenty of goodness included, not least the increasingly popular sound of Gatekeeper, new brutality from Tobacco and Hyperdub’s Terror Danjah, new piano-led pop on Bella Union and a 13-minute epic from Majeure.

#26 – Bo Ningen, Teeth of the Sea, The Bug, Dent May

Well this week’s podcast took some putting together. Both Gareth and Anthony aren’t in the usually professional mood that makes the Independent Music Podcast such an example of top quality broadcasting, but it doesn’t stop the banter – or the tunes – although that may be entirely down to Dent May, whose ability to polarise opinion comes out again. Elsewhere we make the case for guitar music, have a little more library music and some one-handed flute.

#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…
