The Show: Ruff, ruff goes the beagle to the terrier…

One of those shows where we somehow got the gentle ambient field recordings of birds, rainfall, running water and accompanying beats (thank you HAAST – HĀWEA, SODA LITE, THOMAS L. BIGELOW, MASAHIRO TAKAHASHI and OV PAIN) to somehow co-exist with the more crunchier numbers (looking at you HAVENS and BLACK DRESSES). Plus all sorts of other things in between (like the welcome returns of KITTIN, THE HACKER and DESTROYER). #somuchgoodmusicnotenoughtimeforitall

And on with the show…

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…
