After an extended period away from the podcast, Nick and Dan return to chat about new music from Pile, She Keeps Bees, Squid, Blessed, Ausmuteants, PAX and a pair of selections from the recently released Post-Trash Vol. 4 charity compilation. A bit rusty and delightfully unfocused, this one is about the music, as its always meant to be.
Brooklyn micro label Minikin, have released their first compilation: Afterthoughts; a lovely 14-track record for which the proceeds go to Brooklyn music education platform We Make Noise. Minikin, formed in 2015, have brought together scene stalwarts Bethlehem Steel, Vagabon, Long Beard, gobbinjr, Half Waif, among others, and the result is a lovely, meandering set of songs that fit well together without being overly similar.
