Another 4 hours from me this month and as always lots of wonderful things left on the cutting room floor. That said the even more wonderful things made the show.
Personal favourite this month is Gordon Koang a refugee from South Sudan living in Melbourne, he's still only on a temporary visa so doesn't know if he'll get to stay in Australia or be sent back to South Sudan, but it's not stopping him making music and we're glad that's the case. Also out of Australia we have a plethora of new releases from the likes of Bananagun, Disco Junk & Civic amongst others.
This month's anti-brexit songs come from Alan Jenkins, Bob Vylan and Rabo de Toro and talking of Alan Jenkins, his cover of Search & Destroy is one of the best things I have heard this year, if you like what you hear, do check out the rest of his catalogue another great English songwriter I wish I had come across earlier.
Had to include a couple of different sounding covers this month and have been wanting to include Floyd Parsons Italo ambient version of Shine on you crazy diamond for yonks and came across the Kleins covering Devo's Mongoloid, last month and knew I had to find a space for it in the show.
Saw Justin Townes Earl last month having not really listened to him much. A total revelation live and if he's ever schlepping through your neck of the woods make sure you pick up a ticket to see him, I've included a track off his debut EP from 2012 if you've not come across his songs before.
As always I hope you enjoy the show and remember it's not long until we all have to start thinking about this year's Festive 50. I'm already in the whittling down stage.

Powered by Audioscrobbler™Kaifeng-born Yu Su is a composer, DJ, and sound artist.

Tapping into an expansive repertoire of “forth world” ambience and left-field dance music, Yu Su’s emotion-packed compositional punches are best described as organically groovy jazz-bient expeditions between coasts. A proficient instrumentalist who conjures up moments of natural and synthetic beauty, her delicate, dub-inflected signature balances a variety of luminous and wistful downtempo textures. She is responsible for productions on DC’s People’s Potential Unlimited (2017), The Hague-based Wichelroede (2017), NYC’s RVNG Intl. & Arcane (2018), and Amsterdam based Second Circle/Music From Memory (2019). As a DJ, she holds a highly unique voice, crafting evocative musical narratives which touch on a wide-range of influences and personal introspections.
