#38 – Keepers Special

The Independent Music Podcast is back after more than a year with an epic 22-track special dedicated to Anthony’s new night – Keepers.

The concept of the night is Anthony and guest DJs spinning vinyl records they wouldn’t usually play in a club, so expect the unusual, the amusing and the ‘not disco’. Gareth, amongst others, is guesting at the launch, this Tuesday, 4 December at Alibi in London.

So here is more than 90minutes of interesting music, amazingly eclectic, from the upbeat to the misery-inducing, plus the usual inane chatter than made people dislike the podcast last time around.

#18 – Venetian Snares, Fostercare, Forest Swords, Dent May

After two weeks of DJ mixes, Gareth and Anthony come back together to talk nonsense and put across the best independent music releases out this week. An electronic opening gets fused with orchestral scores, disco pop and what we’re led to believe is ‘chillwave’ – but is just fantastic.
