2/22/2021
A remarkable array of sounds to entertain you this week. From the real banger to open to incomprehensible Mexican 8-bit drone via afrobeat genius, violin experimentation, reworked Indonesian throat singing, Polish juke and lots of other great morsels. Tracklisting Lady Lykez - Buzz Lightyear (Hyperdub Records, UK) Etuk Ubong - I Waka Dey Go (self-release, Nigeria) Shane Cooper - STATIC (Kit Records, UK) Amane OG - Defrag (Polish Juke, Poland) Sarah Neufeld - Stories (One Little...

#313 - Dame Area, Adrian Younge, Mainliner, Teresa Winter, Vladimir Ivkovic, CZLT - 15 February 2021

2/15/2021
We often go full fat on the Independent Music Podcast, but with so many mammoth records on this show, we've had to give you morsels of the full glory. Whether that is a 6-minute snippet of 45mins of Balkan choral chanting, 2 minutes of 25 minute Indian-infused metal, or five minutes of the absolutely ear-meltingly good new record from Japanese legends Mainliner, there's plenty of good stuff to get stuck in to. Elsewhere, an early contender for banger of the year from Dame Area on Mannequin...

#312 - Angel Haze, ZULI, Pauline Anna Strom, Tiago Sousa, Colleen, YUNGMORPHEUS & ewonee - 8 February 2021

2/8/2021
Bookended by sublime hiphop, this episode of the Independent Music Podcast takes us on a contemplative journey across the genres. From Portuguese pianist Tiago Sousa's exquisite new modern classical on Discrepant to Livingdog's tentative spatial folk sounds, there's a lot to sit back and settle in to. But we do also have a few tastes of experimental dance floor action too, not least Egyptian producer ZULI's pneumatic techno on Lee Gamble's UIQ label and the new record on Rocket Recordings...

#310 - Tomaga, Nilotika Drum Ensemble, Tom Furse, USA/MEXICO, Arszyn, Abul Mogard - 25 January 2021

1/25/2021
It's an emotional start to this week's podcast with the final recording of podcast mainstays Tomaga. It is - as with all the music Tom and Valentina made together - absolutely stunning and it's heartbreaking no more is forthcoming. More positively, we have a great batch of other sounds to accompany it, not least the ferocious Bugandan drumming of the Nilotika Drum Ensemble or the more experimental percussion of Poland's Arszyn. There's gnarly noise from USA/Mexico, library influenced...

#309 - Murcof, Blanck Mass, SOPHIE & Autechre, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Ashley Paul, Simon McCorry - 18 January 2021

1/18/2021
'Atmospheric' goes some way to describing a lot of the music on the show this week. From the sublime new opus from Mexico's Murcof to the stunning cello experimentation of Simon McCorry, we have sounds that transport you to a range of different intoxicating realms. Elsewhere there's some experimental panpipe music from Bristol's Avon Terror Corps and chopped cowbells from Colombia's LeinaD, Birmingham electronic-inspired new records from Ashley Paul and Beautify Junkyards, SOPHIE's 'no...

#308 - Divide and Dissolve, TT The Artist, Micall Parknsun, Dean McPhee , Meril Wubslin, Sarathy Korwar - 11 January 2021

1/11/2021
A fantastic hour of new music this week, although the highlight could well be the sublime cut of Eswatini and South African music from 1989 that's had a reissue on France's Nyami Nyami label. That Azumah track is bookended by two fairly gnarly pieces from Canada's Seum and Australia's Divide and Dissolve, we also have stunning ambient soundscapes from Chinese debutant Voision Xi, straight-to-disc improvisation from Sarathy Korwar and Upaj Collective, timely social commentary from Micall...

#307 - MF Doom, Yao Bobby & Simon Grab, CARM, Boldy James x Meyhem Lauren, Baïkonour, Iman Houssein - 4 January 2021

1/4/2021
We start 2021 with music that is generally more mellow, contemplative, but no less extraordinary than the music you're used to on the podcast. Kicking things off with avant-folk of Birdengine, there's hints of modern classical from Doug Wieselman and CARM. We also have a very early contender for most exciting record of the year, with the first taste of the debut LP from Yao Bobby and Simon Grab, there's experimental music from Superalma Project, kraut-tinged sounds from Baïkonour, a tribute...

#305 - Favourites of the Year 2020 pt.1 (Unplayed favourites) - 14 December 2020

12/14/2020
We don't do 'best of' episodes at the Independent Music Podcast. Music is subjective and we love to shout about the music we love. This week, we're shouting about the music of 2020 that we love and haven't shouted about during our regular episodes. So whether it's 10-minute Finnish rock opuses, racially charged noise-jazz-hiphop, Kenyan field recordings, or Jordanian rap we've got something new(ish) and experimental for you to fall in love with. We also having pummelling techno, indie...

#304 - Chester Watson, Heather Trost, Mainliner, Giant Swan, Chant Electronique, Spivak - 7 December 2020

12/7/2020
Our final 'regular' show before January sees little let-up in the excellent music being produced through this mess of a year. Whether it's the spine-tingling multi-national vocals of Chant Electronique or the psychedelic fuzz of Japanese legends Mainliner, there's a lot of the good stuff in this hour-long pod. Elsewhere, live podcast regulars will be happy with two horse-related tracks from wildly different spectrums: former A Hawk and A Hacksaw violinist Heather Trosts new one is...

#303 - Gazelle Twin & NYX, Tunes Of Negation, Sulk, Negativland, Agrupación Changó, Alex Stolze - 30 November 2020

11/30/2020
The long-awaited (okay, 12 months) return of Shackleton's Tunes of Negation is a real highlight at the end of this week's show. Before that we have a treasure trove of experimental sounds, from the blistering grindcore of Sulk to the stunning modern classical of Mirry. Also on the show, we have Gazelle Twin and NYX's exquisitely unsettling cover of Paul Giovanni and Magnet's Fire Leap (from The Wicker Man), we have collage art from Negativland, cumbia from Agrupación Changó, Peruvian 8-bit...

11/23/2020
As we get towards the end of 2020, the exceptional music just keeps on coming. Looking towards 2021, Phantom Limb have brand new music from Indonesian experimental pioneers Senyawa coming out that we preview this week. Looking even further afield - to 2022 - mclusky have their first LP in nearly 20 years coming out, and we have the first taste of that via Andy Falkous' one-man-band Christian Fitness. We also have delicious music from right now: we have the krautrock-infused sounds of...

11/2/2020
On this week's pod the mood is a little more downtempo as we explore new releases that cut across musique concrète, spiritual jazz, and drone. It's not all abstract and down though, we also have a fantastic unreleased track from the sadly split Taman Shud, we have a phenomenal club banger from Ziyiz, the latest tropical sounds from Conjunto Papa Upa, Iranian-American experimentation from Maral and loads more.

10/26/2020
A really dark, fascinating start to the podcast, ideal for the time of the year we’re in in the northern hemisphere. First up, we have the scratchy, creepy experimental of Maths Balance Volumes, followed by the doom-laden electronics of The Body. But it's not all darkness on this week's pod, we have phenomenal psych rock from China's Dolphy Kick Bebop, podcast favourite Mdou Moctar and his Tuareg shredding, we have a first play of the excellent new Mary Hampton, Dutch dungeon synth, violin...
