#261 – Etran de L’Aïr, Nan Kolè x DJ Tess, Sunny Jain, Lina_Raül Refree, ZOHASTRE

*Note there’s an annoying sound glitch on this week’s podcast – apologies for that*

What’s that coming over the hill? It’s two people with a podcast and a whole load of exceptional sounds for your ears. From the galloping intro of Sunny Jain through bassy goodness of Gqom Oh boss Nan Kolè and DJ Tess’ collaboration, you know you’re in for a good week. We also have music recorded on mobile phones in Niger, Japanese jazz, hefty rock and a whole lot more.

#111 – Gnod & Surgeon, Blackmass Plastics, Magicpockets, Oribata

After a week in the wilderness, we’re back with great unknown artists, cult legends and some incredible collaborations – not least the one between Gnod & Surgeon. We kick off with a demo from jazz rockists Blegology and soon mix things up with dystopian electro, flute folk, Brazilian funk, and heavy hitting Soweto. We have collaborations between techno legend Surgeon and Manchester psych rockers Gnod, as well as Portugeses psych band Black Bombain and saxophonist Peter Brötzmann. Throw in some Half Man Half Biscuit and you’ve got yourself an immensely enjoyable hour of independent music.
