This week’s show has a strong leftfield and alternative feel to it. Some of the tracks are from albums released on small labels that we love: including Okraina Records, Folklore Tapes, Reverb Worship, Burst & Bloom, Cardinal Fuzz, North Western Recordings and Mega Dodo.
Album ReviewsFeatured Albums
From the opening track The Owl Service offer a triumph of execution against expectation if ever there was one, and a challenge that sets the bar for the remainder of the disc. Invigorating, bold, uncompromising and honest! If this is their final release then it’s a fitting one.
The latest offering from United Bible Studies comes via ‘A Year in the Country’. It’s an album that’s inseparable from its landscapes, full of natural grandeur and musical inventiveness.
Annointed Queen is the result of a collaboration between ethereal London-based baroque folk quartet Firefay and 70s survivor Alison O’Donnell – a match made in psych-folk heaven.
