#282 – Bo Ningen, Tomaga, Deafkids & Petbrick, Effluvium, Sun Ra Arkestra

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.

Elsewhere we have bouncy sounds from Turkey’s Serkan Eles, the blinding collaboration between Deafkids and Petbrick and loads more.

*Please note: this episode was recorded and released before Wiley outed himself as a racist anti-semite. If he had done this before, we would not have aired his music and will not do so in future*

#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.
