#155 – Jonnie Common, Ufomammut, Markey Funk, Jozef Van Wissem

This week saw the sad death of Can founder Holger Czukay. As well as a fitting tribute to the wonderful krautrock legend, we’ve got tunes so eclectic we hope he’d approve. From groovy Israeli sounds from Markey Funk to gothic lute music from Jozef Van Wissem via metal, Japanese trips, soothing hiphop, Scottish pop, and a load of synth-led goodness, this week is a fun one in sad times.
