Not sure how I'd got this far into Dig That Treasure!'s life without spinning Jeannie Piersol's song 'The Nest' on my show but, ay, I did on this episode! It's a real underground classic that shows its head periodically in musical corners of the internet. Next was two tunes by cult pervert weirdo Tonetta. I played two of his more radio-friendly tunes, 'The Saint' and 'I'll Remain As I Am.' I then span a song by Samsimar (their other tune, 'Indang Pariaman', also on Folk & Pop Sounds of Sumatra, is an all-time fave) before spinning two cuts of haunting old easy-listening-jazz-pop by Al Bowlly (the latter sampled by The Caretaker). Closing the show was a great track by Malian singer Aichata Sidibe.

This episode was crammed with treasures. On average, an episode of DTT! features six tracks. Sometimes it works out that I play seven; sometimes, only five. This episode featured eight cracking tunes... and of great diversity, too! It kicked off with the bonkers, jam-packed, maximal 'Adjame Freedom' by Ivorian coupé-décalé artist Mareshal DJ. I brought it down a wee bit after that, with a (relatively) minimal piece of glitchy electronica by Maxo, before returning to hyperactive madness with one of my favourite songs of the year, the amazing 'Pobbles' by, er, Pobbles (assumedly it's A. G. Cook in disguise). Maxo has previously released on PC Music and Pobbles is a PC Music project, so that's a connection, I guess. Next up was a laid-back, romantic(?) R&B tune from Kenyan artist Synmaan. I followed that with an instrumental demo version of Tamao Koike's classic treasure 'Automne Dans Un Miroir' before dropping two tunes from the new Nicholas Krgovich album (out now on Tin Angel!) Closing the show was another Japanese tune (and, like 'Automne Dans Un Miroir,' also released in 1983), this time from Mariah.

Kicking off this episode was Cloud Becomes Your Hand, the New York art-rock band. I then span a great tune from the late Zimbabwean singer Comrade Chinx - check out this album cover if nothing else! I played another tune by Yemane Barya (who I'd also played a few weeks back) as well as a cut from one of D'Eon's Music For Keyboards series, before ending with an absolutely gorgeous ambient track by Beverley Glenn-Copeland called 'Ever New.' The song features on a compilation released this year called Space, Energy and Light.
