Becoming Real

#23 – Becoming Real, Shady Bard, Mariner’s Children, Darren Hayman

Short and sweet this week, but at least Anthony’s back with a batch of records to mix it up a bit. Recorded in the noisy basement of London’s ‘The Slaughtered Lamb’, this week’s podcast brings together tropical funk, moany folk, multiple electronics and a song about bears…

#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.

4.Mirror Image – Ducktails (Domino Recording Co., UK)
