Sam Castell-Ward is one of those quietly eminent keepers of the indie flame who helps his brother and sister musos while cultivating a very distinctive sense of line and lineage and being differently able . We talk about how his well-being situation influences how he writes and performs and what's important to him to get across. Sam's EP launch with full band is up the road from where we recorded in Deptford on Nov 8th. (Sorry that the end of the interview and last song were omitted, restored here) On The Shuffle beforehand (Sam in the event arrives about 90 minutes in) we survey some groovy new danceables including more Dele Sosimi Afrobeat in the offing , and the kinship of new artist Conya Doss with the seasoned Kindred The Family Soul. New things from Istanbul and Honduras too . The Dongle is indisposed but perhaps as challengingly, just after Sam 's set Lustgarten has the funk in his fretboard. And then we can relax with Amber, Ella, Joe , EWF and more.
