#29 – Tobacco, Ritualzz, Euros Childs, Bardo Pond

Possibly too much 80s influence here, with lots of synths, and a song from Adam & Joe influenced by the 80s. Don’t worry though, there is plenty of goodness included, not least the increasingly popular sound of Gatekeeper, new brutality from Tobacco and Hyperdub’s Terror Danjah, new piano-led pop on Bella Union and a 13-minute epic from Majeure. It’s good to be back.
