A truncated show this October, since I'm currently in grad school, and thus juggling at least five different lives around - Dandelion DJ, student, investigative journalist, magazine editor AND music critic. No worries - I'm happiest when I'm busiest!
Anyhow, plenty of the usual variety: tip-toe into the basement chemistry lab with Quimper, inhale toxic Spray Paint fumes, and destroy your last brain cells with Humanshapes. Floating Points and invisible provide electric pathways to synthier havens, while Strange U warn us about crooked sugary confections. Also clear the pulpit - the most dangerous music critic alive unleashes his tirade upon the unsuspecting Australian public!
I've also snuck in two plugs for former Dandy DJ Paul Ackroyd's Dead Albatross awards, an alternative contest to the super-commercialized Mercury Awards.
Finally, October marks the 10-year anniversary of John Peel's passing. So, I've hauled up a session in honor - a suitably nocturnal one, I might add!
