The Show: Some may say that you are only interested in one thing…

A welcome return today from Nick Harte aka Shocking Pinks. His mysterious new MERCEDES CAMBRIDGE project “Adversary” is cinematic, darkly ambient and hypnotically crimecore. It’s the soundtrack for the film that Nicolas Winding Refn was too scared to make. Get it now on Bandcamp and/or get the cassette version via Opal Tapes.

Not to be outdone, after a long hiatus ANIKA aka Annika Henderson is back too. The new album Change is out 23 July 2021. For a wee taste have a listen to Finger Pies…

And on with the show…

The Show: I’ll be eating breakfast in the evening, as the world crumbles in May…

More sneaky threesomes on the show today, this time round plundering new albums from LES BAXTERS and PICKLE DARLING.

And we do love our synth-pop. So how could we resist MANIFEST KITSUNE‘s “catchy, creepy Lovecraft inspired synthwave live electronic anthem for the surreal year of 2021”? Hint: we couldn’t.

The Show: Fiat iustitia, et pereat mundus

Fraserhead is tripping out on milo‘s “galahad in goosedown (fiat iustitia et pereat mundus)”. The most perfect beats and nuttiest most truthful lyrics of 2018. Tip of the hat to the legendary Trevor Jackson.

‘If life were a dream of euphoria
We would not have schizophrenia or paranoia’
