No doubt it’s a more mellow podcast this week, kicking off with soft French chanson and taking time with drone from Love Theme, library-inspired sounds from ToiToiToi, and brilliant folk music from Richard Dawson. Elsewhere there’s an exceptional track off the new Jlin record, there is also some Cameroonian music from the latest Analog Africa compilation. Pop from Deerful, new Henry Wu, and the new single from The Mountain Goats.
