#20 – Zola Jesus, Pretty Lights, Tweak Bird, Squarepusher

Everything’s a little ambient on this week’s Independent Music Podcast.

#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.

#12 – School of Seven Bells, Jean Jacques Perrey, Yusuf Azak, Mount Kimbie

#11 – The Advisory Circle, Wolf Parade, Alien Radio, Thee Oh Sees

Gareth’s on his own this week, which is pretty coincidental given that there’s a resurgence of library music getting a release this week. It’s less fashionable than usual but more interesting, with music ranging from South African electro to dubstep to a first play from the new Dent May album. Weird and wonderful personified
