A few more late finds from 2021, the year that keeps on giving, in the shape of cosmic synthology from the technician in da corner, aka Pye Corner Audio, and unashamedly hedonistic party beats from Eris Drew. Plus unsettling ambience from Kansas City producer, Brian Leeds' Pendant alias, and finally some classic 90s shoegaze psyche-rock … Continue reading 21/01/2022 This week I have been mostly listening to…
