#283 – E.M.M.A., Duma, Valentina Magaletti & Marlene Ribeiro, Opus & Dedw8, Futuro de Hierro

As of this podcast, we have supported 3,596 unique artists and record labels, but we need your help to support more. Even though we host the podcast for free so that we can celebrate phenomenal music, this podcast has hundreds of pounds in additional costs that we can’t cover alone.

If you can afford it and want to make sure we can bring you the next 3,596 artists and labels that could change your life, please support us via Patreon: patreon.com/independentmusicpodcast.

Now, with that out the way, we can tell you about this week’s pod. It starts with slow funk jams from Napoli, takes you through the trap underground of London, via experimental psych from Japan, Malawian witchdoctor field recordings, and a whole lot more. It’s a real cracker.

#282 – Bo Ningen, Tomaga, Deafkids & Petbrick, Effluvium, Wiley

Astounding posthumous work on this show, firstly from the tragically recently departed Jake Dunwoody, whose Effluvium project produced an utter masterpiece in Vera earlier this year. This record – a collaboration with Moonworshipper co-founder Blood Tower – is another blinder. We also have Sun Ra Arkestra putting out their first release in 20 years, and their version of Sonny’s Seductive Fantasy is utterly exquisite.

#278 – Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids, Aditya Permana, Brigid Mae Power, Sly & the Family Drone, Denise Chaila

#277 – The Soft Pink Truth, Marja Ahti & Judith Hamann, Anatolian Weapons, Sebastian Reynolds, Birds

It seems quite poignant to have a track from ‘Am I Free to Go?’ an LP of punk covers from The Soft Pink Truth – the project of Matmos’ Drew Daniel – on this week’s show. It’s been a while since we had some breakcore, but this record is a must-buy. All profits will go to the International Anti-Fascist Legal Defence Fund, which assists people all around the world with the legal repercussions of protesting fascism: https://thesoftpinktruth.bandcamp.com/album/am-i-free-to-go

Elsewhere this week, we’ve got some Sudanese jazz that sounds more like surf music, epic modern classical, jazz funk, dancehall, and your usual blend of the good stuff.
