#198 – Giant Swan, Soap&Skin, E.M.M.A., JK Flesh, Guttersnipe

Back on normal duty this week, and what a selection we have: from the opening from the irrepressible Bristol duo Giant Swan through to “Leeds’ answer to Melt-Banana” in the closer from Guttersnipe. In between those delicious bookends we have a lot of tasty morsels, including the beautiful soundtrack from E.M.M.A., depression-busting sounds from Madagascar by Damily, the first record in five years from Austria’s Soap&Skin, delicate Mexican drone from Alejandro Morse, the new JK Flesh and a lot more
