#79 – Thee Oh Sees, Gnod, Tomppabeats, Golden Rules

After an electronics heavy podcast last week, you don’t get many more fantastic guitar acts than those that feature on this week’s Independent Music Podcast.

We also have odd electronics from Basic Rhythm, techno from Route 8, Kora-gorgeousness from Stranded Horse, light-touch Finnish hip hop from Tomppabeats, heavier-touch hip hop from Golden Rules and the latest from the Sofrito Super Singles club.
