Four hours that positively throb with the beating heart of new music from Leo this month.
Tracks from the stunning, excoriating new album by Kim Gordon, as well as super-strength tunes from ENOLA, Scott Lavene, Alessandro Cortini & Baseck and (band name of the month) IRKED.
He has also uncovered a tune that combines sufi and flamenco influences (yes, really) by Aziz Balouch, and has two songs from the Czech Republic in the shape of Ruce naší Dory and Pavel Richter.
Even more exciting than all this, Leo has his first session, from multi-instrumentalist Magana.
Turn your radio on!
