#197 – Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, Pisitakun, Orchestra of Spheres, Uwalmassa, Jun Kamoda

Recorded live at Milhões de Festa, this week’s show has the usual blend of excellent new music from the farthest reaches of experimental sounds. The idyllic setting is matched by the new track from New Zealand’s Orchestra of Spheres, less so than the morbid techno of Thailand’s Pisitakun. Elsewhere we have new hiphop from Queens D.Light, the new one from our favourite swines Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, Indonesian experimentation and the first track from the long-awaited Jun Kamoda LP
