This week on the Double J website, I spin through a few recent standouts from the Fat Planet program, from punk junk out of the Congo to retro sci-fi from Mumbai. Discover music from Kokoko (Democratic Republic of Congo), Combo Chimbita (Colombia / U.S.), Sid Vashi (India), The Heliocentrics (England / Slovakia) and Diron Animal (Angola).
My program ‘Out From Under’ on London’s Resonance FM pushes Australian underground and experimental music further into the ether – and 2019 was a phenomenal year for wayward and warped local sounds.
The ‘Out From Under’ Albums Of 2019 playlist is up on Spotify, and features (in no particular order) tracks from this collective of artists, all shredding conventionalism in some form or another.
I’ve been digging deep for the Freak Wave podcast ‘Albums of 2019’ list, featuring warped, mutant music from around the world, and you can find them all gathered together on a new Spotify playlist. If you haven’t yet caught the podcast, this is the perfect jumping on point – and if you dig this, the full archive of Freak Wave episodes can be found wherever you get your podcasts.
