#233 – Ohsees, Equiknoxx, Kefaya & Elaha Soroor, Achwghâ Ney Wodei, Laura Cannell & Polly Wright

After a few weeks of studio upheaval, our first episode in our new space is here – and it’s a bit of an abstract one. With fragmented samples of 78rpm records from a French library to Glaswegian dubstep, via violin experiments and Afghan folk music, we have the whole set of what’s good and great in contemporary independent music.

#222 – Laura Cannell, UKAEA, Gnoomes, Rōnin Arkestra, Sikka Rymes

The brilliant Metro Crowd LP on Maple Death Records is a journey in its own right, and its opening track – a dubby, abstract corker – kicks us on our own journey this week. It’s a trip that takes in forward-looking techno, French dancehall, twisted LA dubs, Irish jazz, experimental violinists and Russian punk.
