The Show: My friends are all there, The twinks and the bears, Down those spiral stairs…

In which Fraserhead does things a little bit differently today by starting off with the slow, slow, slow burners and builds up to the bangers at the end, with all sorts in between…

The new Ben Woods album PUT is finally out next Wednesday, and on white vinyl no less. I thought Mr. Woods’ single ROMANCY from earlier this year was going to be my favourite track of 2019 but I didn’t count on hearing another gentle lullaby in the form of GOOD 2 BE SLEEPING. How can you not love a song with the lyric “My friends are all there, The twinks and the bears, Down those spiral stairs…”?

And on with the show…

The Show: The Shipping Forecast.

The BBC Radio 4 Shipping Forecast. ASMR before ASMR even existed. Short cryptic predictions for little-known geographical locations (South Utsire anyone?), snippets of the Forecast are sprinkled throughout today’s show.

If these excerpts do give you that ASMR “low grade euphoria” help yourself to 5 hour or even 9 hour YouTube compilations.

Personal favourite from this playlist is “The Flood” by Haiku Salut, part of their reimagined soundtrack to the 1926 Buster Keaton film “The General”. So feel free to spend the rest of your week trying to sync up the entire score on Spotify with a totally legit free stream of the movie*.
