THIS WEEKS SHOWS:

Due to my time off there will be no feature interview in the show this week but don’t worry, i have extra ace new music wedged in to make up for it! I will be playing three tracks as usual from my ‘Record Of The Week’ which is quite aptly: Brooklyn band Ski Lodge‘s ‘Big Heart’ which i’m slightly obsessed with as is a good friend of mine too!. With an array of fresh sounds as usual, you’d be daft to miss it..
It’s out later this month and it’s called ‘Choir Of Echoes’ and this week Peggy Sue join me to tell me about their new album as well as spinning the new single from it. I’ve already played Idle on the show and it’s absolutely breathtaking! On the show this week John Freeman Tips and Jaws are on the bandstand this week..
