#269 – Félicia Atkinson, Coucou Chloe, Гласность (Glasnost), 3phaz, Awkward Corners

It’s a rollercoaster on this week’s podcast. We start hard with the acid-tinged punk of Гласность, we move swiftly through searing mahraganat from Cairo’s ever-blistering 100copies label, on to abstract electronics, bass-heavy jazz and electro-cumbia. All rounded off through jazz-tinged hip-hop. It’s a journey to savour.
