A track from the long-awaited new Gold Panda record kicks us off this week, where we revisit a few podcast favourites who have new records on the way. It’s not all old favourites though, we’ve got new music from podcast debutants, including LA pop from Nvdes, gnarly rock from Arabrot, afro-funk from The Jagger Batchway Group, and odd electronics from Eartheater. New records from Fumaça Preta, The Cosmic Dead, Jimi Tenor, Apostle, and Metropolitan Soul Museum add up to an exceptional hour of new music.
