20JFG podcast: Way Through

Featuring:

Podcast & Way Through

  There are days, in that period where English Autumn greets biting Winter, when the cold, the damp, the grey and the ochre come together like a synesthesic brew that intensifies our sensations and sharpens our memories, helping them cut through the psychic barriers of the everyday, and transforming our day into a ramble down…

Joining us for our infrequent Saturday mixtape club this week is Chevalier Avant Garde who eschew the bouncing temple pop of Heterotopias for a woozy desert shore.  If Peckinpah had made Cowboys Vs Aliens* and if the Aliens had killed almost everyone and fucked off before the film even started, this would sound track it…

Featuring:

20jfg & Podcast

There is something very beautiful about forgetting the whole every increasing pace of ‘must have the latest’, ‘it’s an exclusive’ and ‘i heard that before’ exists. Forgetting the blogosphere, tumblrsphere, twittersphere, pitchforksphere, facebooksphere, hipstersphere etc exists and just making an unconsciously enjoyable mixtape as a departure for the world we rapidly find ourselves becoming a…

Podcast

Contemplating the nature of humanity or reality is a tough job. Your perception and understanding of the environment gets complex. As any belief in fate or guidance by a higher power politely leaves the party you’re left drinking with a convergence of entropy and infinity poorly stringing theory together while trying to replicate. Paranoia and mistrust of…
