#184 – Dwarfs of East Agouza, JK Flesh, Siete Catorce, Carla Bozulich

After last week’s smooth funk openers, let’s get a little more brutal shall we? Raw Ambassador’s Mental Disorder track is as intense as the artist name and title would suggest, and it takes brave ears to get through that. But persist and (more) rewards are forthcoming – the outstanding collaboration between Aidan Moffat and RM Hubbert for one, and Marlowe – the L’Orange and Solemn Brigham collaboration – for another. Elsewhere we have a mix of the good stuff – get involved
