Playing tracks by
DJ Neil Armstrong, The XX, Yuck, Blood Red Shoes, Hot Chip and more.
Though I'm not usually one for relaying cynical major brand viral campaigns, I couldn't resist opening this week's show with DJ Neil Armstrong's rework of the Imperial March. D-Beck aside, I find it hard not to be excited by the prospect of Darth Vader confronting Daft Punk.
Elsewhere I reckon this was the one of the strongest New Noises to date (and that goes right back to the early podcast days in '07). There is so much music to be excited about right now, I hope you agree from the small amount I've managed to include.
Cheers for your open ears
