#102 – Silver Apples, Swindle, Islam Chipsy, The Square

We may have missed a week, but we’re back with an exclusive first play of a track from the new Silver Apples record. We’ve also got new downbeat tracks from Dean McPhee and Meursault contrasted with Soviet-era disco, French experimental pop from Léonore Boulanger, and Islam Chipsy. Elsewhere we have more Lewisham grime from The Square, Brazilian flavours from Swindle, and the inimitable sounds of Islam Chipsy.
