Mr Zèbre

#268 – Gazelle Twin, Nihiloxica, Cucina Povera, DJ これからの緊急災害, Photay

Covid-19 lockdown was implemented in the UK this week, so Gareth has a solo show for you. A whole heap of favourites have been putting out music: obviously something from Uganda’s Nihiloxica, whose first LP is forthcoming on Belgium’s Crammed Discs. There are also two Coronavirus-related records, with a one-day write and record track from Gazelle Twin, and a brutal industrial punk record from Germany via Turkey project BEEATSZ v2.0999d. Chuck in the mesmerising new record from Glasgow-based Finn Cucina Povera, and there’s more than enough good stuff to improve your mood.

#222 – Laura Cannell, UKAEA, Gnoomes, Rōnin Arkestra, Sikka Rymes

The brilliant Metro Crowd LP on Maple Death Records is a journey in its own right, and its opening track – a dubby, abstract corker – kicks us on our own journey this week. It’s a trip that takes in forward-looking techno, French dancehall, twisted LA dubs, Irish jazz, experimental violinists and Russian punk.
