Your best independent music mixtape all ready for the weekend.

This week I play the freshest sounds in the independent music spectrum kicking off with a demo version of my track Don’t then this list of lovlies “Billy Bragg meets Greenday” TC Folkpunk – I Overheard Someone Telling Me,  followed by “A special kind of smooth” from Eddy Smith – Blood On Your Hands, the kind of rock we really need – an angry version of The Stranglers –Damn Vandals– Mad As Hell, the wonderful mix of Americana and Brit Pop- who would have thought it possible but Bombs – Wrong Side of The Road do it brilliantly, finishing with a kind of angry Kate Bush album track from the mighty Josephine and the Artizans – Let Me Go

All good nothing bad yes?

Is This This Thing On Independent Music Podcast ep 238



A mellow and laid back show this week withe the special treat that is Lucy Kitchen treating us to a live session and an interview. After performing the sublime “Autumn” from her album “Waking” Lucy talks us through the recording process, working with the eponymous Toby Vane (I don’t know what that means either), her website and forthcoming projects. Also featured in this weeks episode is the very funky Eddy Smith – Temptation, the sublime Floella Grace – Valerie, the very French David Garlitz – Starlit Night and the same old Nick Tann – Can’t Stop Missing You
