Episodes

#315 – BIG|BRAVE, Fly Pan Am, Big Scraps, Dialect, Shadi Khries, ビクター MKII

Chopped beats from The Philippines, drone-blues melding, and medieval music from the US midwest are some of the more unfamiliar sounds making their way onto … Read more

#314 – Lady Lykez, Etuk Ubong, Sarah Neufeld, Throwing Snow, Mouse On Mars, Amane OG

A remarkable array of sounds to entertain you this week. From the real banger to open to incomprehensible Mexican 8-bit drone via afrobeat genius, violin experimentation, reworked Indonesian throat singing, Polish juke and lots of other great morsels.

#313 – Dame Area, Adrian Younge, Mainliner, Teresa Winter, Vladimir Ivkovic, CZLT

We often go full fat on the Independent Music Podcast, but with so many mammoth records on this show, we’ve had to give you morsels of the full glory. Whether that is a 6-minute snippet of 45mins of Balkan choral chanting, 2 minutes of 25 minute Indian-infused metal, or five minutes of the absolutely ear-meltingly good new record from Japanese legends Mainliner, there’s plenty of good stuff to get stuck in to.

#312 – Angel Haze, ZULI, Pauline Anna Strom, Tiago Sousa, Colleen, YUNGMORPHEUS & ewonee

Bookended by sublime hiphop, this episode of the Independent Music Podcast takes us on a contemplative journey across the genres. From Portuguese pianist Tiago Sousa’s exquisite new modern classical on Discrepant to Livingdog’s tentative spatial folk sounds, there’s a lot to sit back and settle in to.

#311 – Mikado Koko, Nahawa Doumbia, Party Dozen, свяотй источник, Death is Not the End, Gaffa Bandana

From pirate radio adverts to Indonesian horse riding metal. This week’s podcast is a real journey into the wonderful of planet Earth

#310 – Tomaga, Nilotika Drum Ensemble, Tom Furse, USA/MEXICO, Arszyn, Abul Mogard

It’s an emotional start to this week’s podcast with the final recording of podcast mainstays Tomaga. It is – as with all the music Tom and Valentina made together – absolutely stunning and it’s heartbreaking no more is forthcoming.

#309 – Murcof, Blanck Mass, SOPHIE & Autechre, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Ashley Paul, Simon McCorry

‘Atmospheric’ goes some way to describing a lot of the music on the show this week. From the sublime new opus from Mexico’s Murcof to the stunning cello experimentation of Simon McCorry, we have sounds that transport you to a range of different intoxicating realms.

#308 – Divide and Dissolve, TT The Artist, Micall Parknsun, Dean McPhee , Meril Wubslin, Sarathy Korwar

A fantastic hour of new music this week, although the highlight could well be the sublime cut of Eswatini and South African music from 1989 that’s had a reissue on France’s Nyami Nyami label. That Azumah track is bookended by two fairly gnarly pieces from Canada’s Seum and Australia’s Divide and Dissolve, we also have stunning ambient soundscapes from Chinese debutant Voision Xi, straight-to-disc improvisation from Sarathy Korwar and Upaj Collective, timely social commentary from Micall Parknsun and loads more.

#307 – MF Doom, Yao Bobby & Simon Grab, CARM, Boldy James x Meyhem Lauren, Baïkonour, Iman Houssein

We start 2021 with music that is more mellow, contemplative, but no less extraordinary than the music you’re used to on the podcast. We have avant-folk, modern classical, a very early contender for most exciting record of the year, a tribute to the late, great MF Doom, and much more.

#306 – favourites of the year pt.2

A selection of ten of our favourite records that we’ve played on the podcast in 2020. It’s an impossible task but there is some killer music in here to entertain you for an hour or so.
