#31 – Gil Scott-Heron, Jamie XX, Woli Wols, Jim Noir

The first podcast of another year of inevitably wonderful independent music starts with a 1927 blues track. Take whatever political meaning out of ‘Pray While You Have the Chance’ as you will, or out of Belle & Sebastian’s ‘I Want the World to Stop’, either way if the likes of Jamie XX and Woli Wols are anything to go by, 2011 will be another phenomenal year in the world in independent music.
