The Show: I can barely remember how it feels…

Almost the end of the year and out of the blue Joint favourite MICA LEVI sneakily drops her first ever solo album. For that reason there was a quick rejig of today’s playlist to start proceedings with possibly the shortest track we’ve played all year, but definitely the track with the longest name. See playlist details below.

And on with the show…

Notebooks out completists, here’s the playlist in full…

  • MICA LEVI – A plain clothed Jimi Hendrix drives me to Newcastle. For some reason the trip will take 3 days and he is going to do it for £150. He drives really smoothly and only listens to one album which is by someone with Joy in their name. Joy’s music is covers of classic rock songs but with all the edge smoothed off. We arrive in Brazil and I impress someone because I say obrigado. The same person asks me to find them an intern. I don’t think I can but I try. I am nervous in the girls changing room and play trap songs loud off my phone.

Fraserhead at the controls today with classics from Nina Simone and Louis Prima bookending the show, and in between heaps of local produce in the form of Motte, Haan-808, Jagā, the sounds of the Crooked Lidz crew, Skymning, and Avoid Avoid, and then the weird and the wonderful from around the globe e.g. $hit and $hine, Sun Kil Moon, Daedelus, and Marshall Applewhite.

Suckers stare but I don’t care

Lots of bleeps and beats and washing machine rhythms today with not too many vocals or words spoken. Starting off with the funk, then delving into the techno, a hip hop interlude, and then finishing off with the mellow and melancholic.
