#201 – DUDS, Sharron Kraus, Swindle, Sealionwoman, Rabit

The morning after the night before! We’re super grateful to all our amazing listeners, and we got a huge amount more for podcast 200. Hopefully those of you who came in on #200 are ready for #201, because we’ve got a whole new batch of amazing new sounds for your ears.

First up there’s the fantastic percussion of João Pais Filipe, who’s a member of Porto’s ace HHY & The Macumbas (featured on #197). In keeping with percussive experiments we also have the Domadana Kadodi Performers from Uganda released (of course) on the excellent Nyege Nyege Tapes.

Elsewhere we’ve got super experimental sounds from Emerging Industries of Wuppertal via Singapore’s ShanGORIL La Records, we have something closer to home in the UK’s nasty, noisy Blood Claat Orange.

To wash that down with got sublime jazz from Swindle, stunning folk from Sharron Kraus and a whole lot more…
