RADIO LIES ep 328

Bit late to the latest Ghostpoet release, but it’s magnificent. Sault have been dominating the office turntable of late and while the track we feature here isn’t off the latest one – Untitled (Black Is) – still worth a spin. The new one is terrific too. New Working Men’s Club which sounds fab, Circe is new to us but that’s a great sound, similarly Gemma Dunleavy we are totally on board with, and we hope Chiedu Oraka goes places as we like the cut of his gib.

RADIO LIES ep 325

Remember the seminal Manchester band the Diagram Brothers? No, not many do. They were good though and in Leeds outfit Yard Act, there may just be a successor. We like em. John Foxx has a new one and sounding like a cross between Bowie and Gang Of Four can’t ever be a bad thing. Everything else here is good too, especially Metz, Goodtime John and Chrome.
