Rocket Recordings

#300 – podcast favourites

For our 300th episode, we decided to ask our listeners to vote on their favourite tracks that we played between episodes 201-298. We received more than 400 votes, and have pulled the top 20 for you, split into two separate shows of ten tracks each. In the third podcast, Anthony and Gareth have picked their favourite five each.

#295 – Keeley Forsyth, Moor Mother, Pharaoh Overlord, UKAEA, Maciej Maciągowski, drwg

This podcast explores all reaches of musical experimentation, some weeks you might hear disco, other weeks you may hear metal. So when Finnish faves Pharaoh Overload combined the two on their new record for Rocket Recordings, we had to sit up and listen. Thankfully it’s phenomenal.

#294 – Oh Sees, Lucrecia Dalt, Sarathy Korwar, HHY & the Kampala Unit, Kibrom Birhane, Paisiel

There are few better ways to stretch your musical legs than the 8-minute delight that is the title track from the debut EP from Kibrom Birhane on the new Flying Carpet Records, and that’s exactly how we kick off this week’s show.
