Sly & the Family Drone

#278 – Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids, Aditya Permana, Brigid Mae Power, Sly & the Family Drone, Denise Chaila

Without Black culture, this podcast wouldn’t exist, and neither would music as we know it. ‘Fuck the Police’ the track from Jamaican legend Daddy Freddy and Yorkshire duo Danny T & Tradesman came out just before the current protests but is particularly poignant this week.

Elsewhere, we have more timely releases from Mourning [a] BLKstar and Joy-Rides, we also have the latest from Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids, the long awaited first record from Italy’s Hvsband, skronk jazz from London’s Sly & the Family Drone, dark disco industrial cutups from Jakarta’s Aditya Permana and a lot more.

By the way, our next online live show is this Thursday (11 June). Buy tickets from Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/independent-music-podcast-live-music-for-adventurous-music-lovers-tickets-106268092726
