Jean Ritchie

#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

#39 – Mumdance, The Wharves, Damaged Bug, Gnod

A fascinating week of releases to bring the podcast back after a three year break, we’re opening with an astounding track from the new Bill Wells and Aidan Moffat LP and over the hour take in lost afrobeat, unreleased 60s soul, cellphone African rap and the new one from Thee Oh Sees’ John Dwyer.
