#231 – Girl Band, Cate le Bon, Plaid, CMPND, Mr Mitch

Sometimes we start the podcast with music to shake your body into action, other times we just assault your senses with experimental noise. This week it’s the turn of Girl Band to launch the podcast into your ears with six minutes of hefty post punk goodness. Elsewhere in the hour we have abstract Japanese music, UK hip hop, Pakistani Surti, New Zealand dancehall and the usual (and unusual) stops in between.
