#192 – Tim Hecker, Mars89, Paul Frick, Sealionwoman

This week’s show has a lot of psych in it. From the opening riffs of Japanese band Kikagaku Moyo through to metal psych of Kurokuma, there’s a lot of tasty colours on show here. Also from Japan we have gqom-inspired bass music from Mars89, there’s some detective jazz out of Salford with The Crime Scene Ensemble, stunning avant-garde folk from Sealionwoman, and a gorgeous ending from Alexander Tucker.
