#27 – Stereolab, Plug, Liz Green, Banjo or Freakout

The names are being brought out this week with new releases from Stereolab and Gruff Rhys. Elsewhere we have a long-awaited Liz Green album, discuss the greatness of the name Banjo or Freakout, mull over re-recorded versions of songs with PLUG and enjoy Fever Ray covering Nick Cave. A traditionally non-genrelising podcast from IMP.

#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.

#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…
