Playing tracks by
Roy of the Ravers, Joey Nebulous, Goat Girl, Chino Amobi, Future Orients and more.
Welcome to the Ring of Fire January show. Another year and lots of new music as well as some undiscovered gems from the last 12 months that I missed.
After a trawl of many other end of year lists, I can bring you music like new Chinese band the Future Orients, Chino Amobi who has taken a look at Eno and decided that it's time that ambient music is updated for a blacker more 21st century audience taking its cues from R'n'B and trap producers. Also, yet again Burial hits the nail on the head with his latest opus, Nightmarket.
Being of a certain vintage, it is always a little tough to keep up with the latest dance floor 12"s. So I'm glad those lists alerted me to the Roy of the Rovers 12" and the fabulous Acid Lancashire by Chevron.
Bands I'll be investigating more in 2017 are Scotland's Dr Cosmo's Tape Lab, who remind me in spirit of the glorious Aliens, and my other band of the moment The Liquids from Bloomington, Illinois who for me are the most punk thing I've heard this century.
