#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.

#3 – Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Faust, Funki Pocini, Eagleowl

The third Independent Music Podcast starts off a little more mellow than the first two, with soul, folk and ambient tracks opening the longest one yet.

There’s still plenty to hurt your ears though, with the usual mix of electronics, noise, rock, pop and all the rest from another interesting batch of independent releases

The second episode of the Independent Music Podcast has been recorded live – and it shows – as Gareth and Anthony learn of and hunt down a new release during the show.

Again, a genre skipping range of new independent releases, including one classic band coming back with a new record. Anthony has a bag of great works in progress too…
