6: Episode 6 – with Beck, Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile, and Baxter Dury plus special guest Daniel Lawrence Taylor

Joey and Jimi return to chew over the efficient excellence of Beck's new album, Baxter Dury's dazzlingly weird mid-life crisis and Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile's decidedly laid-back love-in. They're also joined by comedian and actor Daniel Lawrence Taylor, who talks about creating ITV2's Timewasters, selects some evocative late-90s R&B and details his longstanding, and surprising, beef with Busta Rhymes. *Please subscribe, rate and recommend us to spread the word*
