Show Notes “The Wattles – a true lockdown band – mark the early stages of my emergence into the world for a second year. Again, it’s a set of dense and luxurious song, restrained and complicated, bursts of flame against a pitch sky.” Gallery Learn More Facebook | Instagram
Show Notes “After the anxiety build-up across the last couple of years, it’s the songs like the ones Iain T. McKelvey drops tonight that arrive to calm the waters. A guitar so rich that it might be made entirely of cake rolls under a vocal singing sad songs with just a hint of a bird-like […]

“Holy cow, this is mental. Made up of MC P.Smurf, Platterpush & Codecks, and more, this is insanely fast bars, massive dancehall beats, and absolutely humungous vibes throughout. Enough rumbling bass to make you remember breakfast, and more syllables per second than you can count. Joyous, bouncing, and sharp as a razor.” Subscribe to The […]
