Brownbutter says juice up and strap in, because November sees him spinning through all kinds of sound on this 4-hour show.
Brand new: mind-blowing fever funk from the Congo, full frontal vicious post-punk from Melbourne, a new new wave anthem from a trans superstar, and one hell of a hardcore-crossover act out of Atlanta - and that's just the first set.
All kinds of surprises on one heck of a show, you should pack your toothbrush and wear the good underwear.

There is nothing pumpkin flavored about this month's show. Good thing, because Negative Approach would never put up with that. I have a ton of new releases to play this month, including stuff from Los Palms, Memo PST, Poison Zcora, La Perla, Palm, Lime Crush, Dale Kerrigan, Wau Wau Collectif, Teri Gender Bender, Daniela Lalita, Mamalarky, and Avangart Tabldot. There is also a great reissue of Los Elegantes and the new 6th volume of the Typical Girls series!

Enjoy the show!

Remember, remember, Gareth's show in November. It's an explosive 2 hours of new music and lost old gems guaranteed to set your ears on fire.
There's a Cardiff takeover courtesy of new tracks by Panic ShackMelin Melyn and My Name is Ian.
Meanwhile 'Secret Songs from the Sixties' brings Baroque-Pop cuts for a new 3CD box set called 'Climb Aboard My Roundabout! - The British Toytown Sound 1967-1974' on the Grape Fruit label via Cherry Red.
Then the 2nd hour's guest presenter for 'Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue' is Bruno Wilkinson, snotty 17-year old Punk singer of Bruno and the Outrageous Methods of Presentation who releases his debut single on November 4th. It features Sex Pistol Glen Matlock on bass!

So, make sure to tune in to catch the likes of Honey Badgers, Gilla Band, The Katy, Big Joanie, Montparnasse Musique, MJ Hibbett & The Validators, Deerhoof, Enji and All Hail Hyena,
It's been a while and it's good to be back!

A gargantuan five hours from Leo for November. Don't feel obliged to listen to it all in one go, but it will definitely reward repeated visits over the course of the month.
If, that is, you want to hear the freshest tunes from every genre and none, from all parts of the globe and from artists you will discover that you always wanted to hear.
Who, for example?
Well, in the sibilant corner there's Sorry, Sarahsson, Sweet Juice, Shit & Shine, Circuit des Yeux, Colin Stetson and Somyot Tassanphan.
Representing the "v" voice, we have Vega Trails, Varg2™, Valentina Berthelon, Vincenzo Ramaglia, Loke Rahbek & Frederik Valentin, Sharon Van Etten, and Chloé (Thévenin) & Vassilena Serafimova.
Convinced? You should be, because this only scratches the surface. Why not tune in to catch the full stereophonic impact?

In the current UK political climate, it was always dangerous to start the show with a track about the current Prime Minister (courtesy of Captain Ska, who else?) only to find that now the show is going out somebody else has been shunted by his mates into 10 Downing Street.
Elsewhere in this month's show, we briefly discuss the pile of vinyl under the stairs in my house and lament the absence of the previous Essential Logic album from that collection, while of course playing something from the new one. Our featured compilation is a fabulous Yep Roc soul collection and there are new releases from the likes of JD Meatyard, Bill Callahan, Lisa Pung and Black Market Karma, among the aural delights on offer.
And, of course, this being the month of Festive Fifty voting, we Peel Back... to the chart of forty years ago, though not in the way you might expect ...

Pete Jackson

November sees big new releases from a host of favourites, so this month you'll get new tuens from Goat, The Comet Is Coming, Shit And Shine, Derya Yıldırım & Grup Şimşek and Sendelica, along with a couple of 70s bangers from the recently-deceased Pharoah Sanders and the still on-the-go Neon Hearts.
We get all cosmic (man) with Zong and Cosmic Threat, wig out to psych-pop form Israel, Sweden and France and get dubby with Chouk Bwa And The Angstromers and the legend that is Horace Andy.

Rocker

Two hours packed with new music, including tracks from Helen McCookerybook; The Chesterfields; Jonathan Richman & Tommy Larkins; AlterModerns; Captain Ska; The Science Of Words; Urges; The Mysterines; Neil Young & Crazy Horse; Jeanines; Arrest! Charlie Tipper; The WaterStriders; Chained Bliss; Lande Hekt; The Boys With The Perpetual Nervousness; Neutrals; and The Reverend Jonny Kinkaid.
There's electronica from Sasha; Carsten Halm; and an amazing new track from Burial. There's funky Hammond from Big Boss Man, and smooth UK soul from Pama International.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: The shortest serving UK Prime Minister is currently Richi Sunak, 5' 7". If he stays in office until December 15th this doubtful honour will pass to Liz Truss, who held the office for just 50 days in 2022, before being forced to resign having lost the confidence of the Tory Party due to the effect the financial and political crisis she created had on their electability.

We start with a treat for the penultimate show of the year ... a new release from Sault. New tunes from Sports Team (as good as ever in my book), Portland's Woolen Men, The Bobby Lees and many more.
I'm really enjoying brooklyn based leftfield "country" artist Dougie Poole. I played something by him a couple of months back and have become quite addicted to his quirky take on the genre.
MJ Hibbert rightly rails against people who stand in doorways, having just spent six or so weeks pottering around Europe on trains, I know how he feels, nothing worse than coming off an escalator with a heavy bag and having to work around somebody dithering about!
New releases on metal postcard this month from the Neon Kittens, The Conspiracy, Occult Character, The Bordellos & The Legless Trials.
Another banger quietly released by Jamie XX, is, I presume, taking the world's clubs by storm.
Thanks as always to our listeners around the world. This past week I was contacted by a listener in Shanghai who snatches shows when he can via VPN as the party cracks down further on foreign culture. It is worth taking a moment to remember how spoilt we are for choice when it comes to accessing culture as there are many places on our planet where it is becoming much harder to access interesting and challenging art whether it be music, literature or visual.

It's Thomas's fifth anniversary on Dandelion Radio and what better way to celebrate than to not mention it at all in this month's show and just play some excellent new music as always.
Looking forward to imminent records by Gordon Koang, Hot Tubs Time Machine and Gut Health, grooving to a huge new retrospective of Marvin Tate's D-Settlement, reflecting on Festive Fifty-worthy treats (and AOTY candidates) from this year by Double Vanity and Loveboner, and swooning to the greatest tribute act in recent memory, Everly BROS.

Join Mark as he takes us through another two hours of his favourite new music, with brief glances at reissued gems from the past and a general focus on the interesting, the odd and the unfairly overlooked.
This time Mark limits himself to water.
