#277 – The Soft Pink Truth, Marja Ahti & Judith Hamann, Anatolian Weapons, Sebastian Reynolds, Birds

It seems quite poignant to have a track from ‘Am I Free to Go?’ an LP of punk covers from The Soft Pink Truth – the project of Matmos’ Drew Daniel – on this week’s show. It’s been a while since we had some breakcore, but this record is a must-buy. All profits will go to the International Anti-Fascist Legal Defence Fund, which assists people all around the world with the legal repercussions of protesting fascism: https://thesoftpinktruth.bandcamp.com/album/am-i-free-to-go

Elsewhere this week, we’ve got some Sudanese jazz that sounds more like surf music, epic modern classical, jazz funk, dancehall, and your usual blend of the good stuff.

Our next online live show is on 11 June. Buy tickets from Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/independent-music-podcast-live-music-for-adventurous-music-lovers-tickets-106268092726
