Resonance FM 18/2/20

This was a fun episode. I kicked off with Malay rock from A Nandong before playing virtuosic composer Oliver Buckland and a bonkers slice of J-pop by Bakunyu Sangokushi. Two songs from an album of Cosmic Children's Songs followed, before a wicked tune from Ethiopian star Aster Aweke. I closed with some lovely light music courtesy of Russ Morgan.

Resonance FM 4/2/20

I ended this show with a bit of an anomaly, a song by a well-known group signed to a well-known label and who are still touring large venues across the world. Still, the particular track played, an instrumental version of the the beautiful and intricate '(I Wanna) Feel It All' by Dirty Projectors is the b-side to the most slept-on song on an arguably overlooked album... Beyond that I had some great obscurities and oddities: from the godfathers of outsider pop Wilson and Moore to Japanese actress/singer Sachiko Nashida, via the lesser-known American guitarist C'est What?!, Italian lounge legend Piero Umiliani (Ruscigan), Taiwanese singer Chai Mi Mi and the inimitable Yeshimebet Dubale with Fasil Demoz.
