9 August 2016

Just over two weeks ago, I was doing this. During that, I fell off that stage and broke a couple of ribs. It hurts. I can't drive, so I've not made it into the studio. By the time I get back up there, the selection I made for the 9th of August will be well out of date. So consider this an online exclusive.

Dada Baba - Chinese Fried Rice
Let's start in Hong Kong. This came out a week ago on Metal Postcard which is your one-stop shop for things Pacific rim.

Cowtown - Tweak
DIY stuff from Leeds. the album Paranormal Romance is out a week on Friday, it's production delayed due to the flooding in Leeds last winter and the damage to MJ's studio (MJ of Hookworms that is).

Angel Olsen - Shut Up Kiss Me
From St Louis and bound to do well commercially, this is off My Woman which is out in September.

Featured album: Air - Le Voyage Dans La Lune
