#202 – Maarja Nuut, Sarathy Korwar, Part Chimp, Alma Negra, Dreadsquad

This week we’re keeping it local to where we record the podcast, with eight of our ten tracks being released on UK-based record labels. That doesn’t stop the international flavour of the artists though, and Estonia’s Maarja Nuut has just released a record that is amongst the best we’ve heard all year.

We also have Polish sci-fi dubs from Dreadsquad released via Glasgow’s Scotch Bonnet Records, we have London-based Indian jazz musician Sarathy Korwar, noisy new tracks from Part Chimp and Blóm and a whole lot more.

#50 – Pye Corner Audio, Gum Takes Tooth, Dreadsquad, Graffiti Island

The same number of tracks as usual, squeezed into a tight 56 minute podcast. The main cause is Anthony’s desire for punchy, danceable music this week, although that’s not the impression you’d get from the opener – the blinding, epic Mirrors Fold from the brilliant Gum Takes Tooth. Elsewhere we’ve got the new one from Pye Corner Audio, we’ve also got the latest from Polish digidub producer Dreadsquad, a haunting tribute to the wonderful Jean Ritchie and much more
