It's another year and another 4 hour monster from me. Not sure if you want to hear that much of me but I can't help but keep finding swathes of new tunes I just must share with the world! My faviurite release of the moment is an ep released in November by NYC band the Gnarcassists. It is as though the early hardcore Beastie Boys had decided to write songs like the Strokes, just with more drugs references. Can't get enough of them. Other new acts grabbing my attention in November and December are Slowthai, Party Dozen, Bysts, Stef Animal and a corker of a track from Mysdiggi who come at us with a touch of Depth Charge about them, yes please.
We also bring you a couple of tracks off the debut solo by Brian Bordello. A man who can, with a battered old accoustic and one track Tascam pull out more soul than most of the others out there. Steve Mason has a new release out, as do Art Brut and The Good, the Bad & the Queen, all of whom we give a quick spin.
On the oldie side of things we've got Woody Guthrie, a cut of the debut that Portland's Woolen Men put out on Woodsist back in 2012 and it still sound as fresh today as it did on release six years ago. Plus we can't forget that we lost Pete Shelly last month, still smarting from that one. It's Fast Cars for me and from his solo period post Buzzcocks I've selected On Your Own.
Special mentions go to an amazing release on Diagonal, "NHK yx Koyxen" feat. Speedy J - StepMove. What a label and what a tune. Heard Speedy J for the first time the same night I heard Charley by the Prodigy for the first time ... amazing to see that he can still be so inventive so many years later. Also I can't not mention my favourite Aussie discovery this month Buddy Dingo! Two tracks from him "Mortgage & A Mower" and "Driving My Ute' have a Half Man Half Biscuit look at life on this side of the planet.
Thanks for listening and hope you enjoy what your hear on the show this month.

Low Jack - Raid Leader Buy this track
Low JackPowered by Audioscrobbler™Low Jack (Philippe Hallais), perfectly personifies the new breed of electronic musician who has grown up between the analog/digital age, using intuitive software programs like Logic and Ableton to spontaneously express ideas and emotions. Always fascinated and interested in analogue drum machines and synthesizers for their warm and deep sound, he performs and produces exclusively with machines like the legendary Roland Tr-909, Tr-808, Tb-303, Elektron MD UW and MM. Online distribution has also made it possible for them to reach out and connect with audiences across the globe, no matter where they are.

His teenage years were spent listening all kind of music to get the "right personal touch" and playing turntables in clubs around Rome, Italy. At the time it was hard to hear good dance music in Rome apart from one or two tracks that crossed over into the commercial clubs he sometimes visited with friends but that was enough to whet his appetite and he immediately got wrapped up in the beats, connecting with the music on a deeper level. He started exploring the electronic medium and became fascinated by how some DJs could apply their own personal vision to the music, elevating it to an art form. This was exactly the inspiration he needed and he was soon experimenting with loops on his laptop, and buying records (DrumCode, Cadenza, Plus8, Perlon, Spectral and of course Minus) to dj with.
