No wrinkles. No crinkles. No seams that show.

We are seriously thinking of starting a “This is going straight to the poolroom” segment for the show. Straight in at number one is this gem of an ad from 1976…

Fraserhead on duty today, starting off with a sneaky threesome off the new Soulwax album “From Deewee”, there’s some dark synth action from ÉLAN VITAL and PILOOSKI, we delve into soothing, thudding techno from JASSS, LIZA AIKIN, and HØF, plus beats and atmospherics galore from $HIT and $HINE, SKYMNING, BAILTER SPACE, AUDIOPHYSICAL, JOE JACKSON, and MR AMISH, to name but a few.

You can, kind of, lose yourself in it…

The holidays have been a good time to catch up on the overlooked releases of 2016 as well as enjoy the first fruits of 2017. Even then we could only squeeze in a small selection.

Today we’ve got the dark beats from the likes of MIXHELL (see video above for a 2017 remix of a late 2016 track), Tolouse Low Trax, Marie Davidson, Dread Monochrome, ‘duets’ from Islet and The xx, beautiful noise from The Trendees and MANNEQUIN PUSSY.

We also finally catch up with local hip hop label SEASIDE’s back catalogue. Have a listen to them on Bandcamp or hit the buttons below.


So yeah, just a taste of what’s on the show today.

RIP David Robert Jones (1947 – 2016)

The Joint curse strikes again ™.

Early yesterday evening I emailed The Herb Whisperer about David Bowie’s new “Blackstar” album and said this “doesn’t sound near-death like the last album.”

Half an hour later David Bowie’s death was announced.

Feel like a right jinxing cnut now.

RIP Mr Jones.
