Playing tracks by
Sone Institute, The Loved Drones, XTC, Wires Under Tension, Little Annie & Baby Dee and more.
I’m always interested to know where (geographically) music comes from – on this week’s show, it came from Canterbury, Liege, London, Brooklyn, Paris, Sheffield, Manchester, Swindon, Berlin and Cinncinatti. Where (philosophically, creatively) it comes from is another matter… More Sone Institute (A model life), XTC (Apple Venus), Wires Under Tension, Little Annie & Baby Dee, Laetitia Sadier, Richard Hawley (Irish Tour next week) & Peter Broderick. Plus for the first time, The Loved Drones (drifting psych pop), Jacqueline Taleb (French Pop compilation), Milk Maid (like a shoegazey Big Star), Eat Lights Become Lights (furious krautrock backbeat), Syd Arthur (jazz folk feel) and Daphni (Caribou/Dan Snaith) with some lovely, loose and soulful house music. And Melody’s Echo Chamber to finish, a pop tune so perfect I think I’d rank it up there with Downtown, the Petula Clark version, in other words an all time classic. Yes, it’s that good.
