About the show

Playing tracks by

Trophy Wife, Spector, Weird Dreams, Ellen and the Escapades, Kwes and more.

This week's Amazing Radio show previews this coming weekend's Camden Crawl in London, which year in and year out presents a terrific assortment of emerging artists. For 2012, over 340 acts are set to perform over 3 days at 50 clubs and venues across one of the city's trendiest areas. Like SXSW and CMJ in the US, the Crawl gives attendees the chance to see emerging artists in (mostly) intimate settings.

I was fortunate enough to attend in 2008, a real thrill. It's where I first got to see Fanfarlo, Robyn, and Sky Larkin. I also saw performances by The Answering Machine, Stricken City, Ipso Facto, Duels, Lucy & the Caterpillar, all who've since disbanded, highlighting the incredible burn rate of the UK music scene. And while I enjoyed virtually every one of those bands, I could have just as easily been seeing Florence + the Machine, Lykke Li, Metronomy, M83, Los Campesinos!, Wild Beasts, Noah & the Whale, Bombay Bicycle Club, or Cage The Elephant. Talk about hindsight!
