Resonance FM 25/9/18 (Kiran Leonard II)

On this week's episode I was joined by the wonderful Kiran Leonard, friend of Dig That Treasure and recent arrival in London, who play seven tunes of his choosing. What proceeded was a mix of steel-pan-infused 60s pop, Swiss coldwave, mathematic rock and Brazilian jam-outs. It was a blast - and always a pleasure to be introduced to new stuff! Kiran's new record, Western Culture, is out on October 18th on Moshi Moshi Records. He will also be touring the UK throughout October, November and December.

Resonance FM 18/9/18

The second episode of the new series kicked off with what I would say is a perfect closer, Marios Group's 'Borungku Si Derita' (which also opened the 15 track mix I compiled for this month's Wire Magazine). Some library music by Christian Chevallier followed, before some super saccharine video-game-pop from Japanese artist Silver Forest. Some 80s mbira playing followed, before I toned it town with Happy End's luscious 'Natsu Nandesu' and Woo's 'Romantics' (LONG LIVE WOO!).

Resonance FM 11/9/18

Yet another series on Resonance FM, marking five years on the station (my first show was September 2013)! I opened the show with the same song I opened the first ever - Mort Garson's Swingin' Spathiphyllums. I then played a song by Yeshimebet Dubale (who incidentally also featured on my first episode) and an oldie from Richard Dawson. Next was a great track from an album I picked up in New York's Chinatown, then a song from Finder's Keeper's compilation Life Is Dance! I finished the show with a tribute to Sam Mehran, who passed away in July.
