#133 – Trans Am, WaqWaq Kingdom, Hector Plimmer, Vincent Ahehehinnou

So much good music this week that Gareth has tracks in reserve to cope with the fact that both of them picked the immense WaqWaq Kingdom record. Fortunately that means that we get an airing of the new one from podcast favourite Pye Corner Audio. Elsewhere there is Steve Reid Foundation beneficiary Hector Plimmer, Jesca Hoop and loads of other great music.
