Front and Follow

#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.
