Some waffle about new music. Brought to you by the letter ‘P’ rollerskating through the 1980s with Pale Waves, Paramore, Paul Draper, Poliça and the (Manic Street) Preachers.
A bunch of really quite good songs hitting the “airwaves” at the moment. This week: Sunmi, Let’s Eat Grandma, Gaz Coombes, Chvrches, and Rita Ora & Liam Payne.
Some frivolous chat about some new and newish songs. This week: Gwenno, Moss Kena, Noel Gallagher and Mabel.
In which I blather on a bit about some fab songs around right now. This week: Kylie Minogue, LA Salami, Friendly Fires, Hollie Cook, Rae Morris and Robbie Williams.
In which I ramble on a bit about some new tunes and videos which have caught my eyes and ears. This week: Mamamoo, Justin Timberlake, Warm Digits and Manic Street Preachers.
