#35 – Burial, Soft Healer, Connan Mockasin, Matt Berry

This week’s podcast has perhaps the only online stream of the new Burial track that is the actual track rather than a radio rip, but away from the well known, we have the usual mix of obtuse, wonderful new independent releases. From an electronic track recorded before Elvis’ first number one to a side project of The Bug, to a nine minute psych-folk epic from Matt Berry, to Gareth’s favourite track of the year so far from Soft Healer, this week’s podcast is a superlative collection
