Thank you long time listener Michael Mickelbart for bringing to our attention the brand new Isolée single “Allowance”. It’s lovely minimal house that reminds us of the early days of The Joint. You can watch the video for “Allowance” below. Be warned – it features ghosts and blobs of red jelly. Nice to have you tuned in from the USA, Michael!
Allow us to also recommend the Delusions of Grandeur podcast hosted by Norm de Plume. Always a fantastic selection from a classy record label. Put us on to the fantastic disco sounds of Drop Out Orchestra and the new “Pathfinder” EP by Toby Tobias. Hear more goodness over at DoG’s Soundcloud page.
A while back we played a track from the brand new Pantha du Prince album “Elements of Sound” that he made with The Bell Laboratory. Forgot to post a video though. Below is the video for “Spectral Split”. We will somehow shoehorn the whole 17 minutes and 35 seconds of it into the show today. Read about the making of the album over at XLR8R.
This is a heavily edited show – we had to cut out chunks of audio because of a dodgy microphone and, more impressively, interference caused by the transmitter overheating in the blazing Canterbury sun. Global warming my arse.
ABOUT THE JOINT
Hosts THE HERB WHISPERER and FRASERHEAD go all over the shop with an eclectic, left-field, and off-kilter selection of cosmic disco, electro, indie, hip-hop, house, dub, and anything with a motorik vibe, plus the occasional guilty pleasure. If the radio sounds broken chances are it’s the THE JOINT.
