Balam Acab

#92 – Jessy Lanza, Arşivplak, Noveller, Spectre

Our featured released from Turkey’s Arşivplak is just one of many highlights on this week’s podcast. We’ve also got new tracks from Hyperdub’s latest Jessy Lanza, France surfers Juniore, Colombian electronics from Titanik, Balam Acab, the brutal sounds of Spectre, and another one from the mind-bending I Know I’m An Alien. We also have a recent one from loud Japanese band Otoboke Beaver, and older sounds from Camberwell Now

#24 – Solhorn, Balam Acab, Pictureplane, Tubby Hayes

After last week’s short podcast, Gareth and Anthony find the time in a hotel in Birmingham to put together something more lengthy and obtuse than what they’ve managed in a long time. From the old and beautiful of Dizzy Reece, Tubby Hayes and Rolf Harris, through to the ‘hottest track in Birmingham right now’ of Italy’s Husband, as well as the uber-rare hustlings of Denmark’s Solhorn, stopping off to appreciate The Slits as well as much more great new independent releases, this is a carst of sublime nonsense – just the ticket for a cold October week.
