Playing tracks by
Laurie Shaw, Parquet Courts, The Last Sound, The Elwins, Wussy and more.
This show was 13th in the global instrumental chart and 22nd in the global punk chart.
Some new Parquet Courts this week - it's great - paired with Laurie Shaw who namechecks the band in his glorious glam jam 'Handbag'.
The Last Sound play live at the end of the month in Dublin, any excuse to play them. There's a new EP from William Tyler, more wonderful winding guitar instrumentals. And Wussy, digging the alt country side of themselves.
Beguiling global folk from Ichi (mosquitoes and all), Laetitia Sadier just being her own self, Sabina sounding like a cross between Nico and Joan Jett.
And Stars in Battledress (pic) urging us to 'Buy one now' - it's so delightfully wonky that something tells me Argos won't be snapping it up as their theme tune anytime soon.
