If you had access to 39 gigantic bells and wanted to make an exotica record, how would it sound? If you wanted to make an orchestral opus and only had access to synths, how would that sound? Some answers may be enclosed in this week's podcast.  As well as experimentation with massive bells, we have more modestly produced music that is no less extraordinary. The latest from Thai trap maestro JUU4E is magnificent, the ever-prolific Chester Watson is back, the less prolific but always mesmeric Part Chimp return, and we have new ones from Penelope Trappes, Georgia, Masayoshi Fujita, Slikback and more.

We often go full fat on the Independent Music Podcast, but with so many mammoth records on this show, we've had to give you morsels of the full glory. Whether that is a 6-minute snippet of 45mins of Balkan choral chanting, 2 minutes of 25 minute Indian-infused metal, or five minutes of the absolutely ear-meltingly good new record from Japanese legends Mainliner, there's plenty of good stuff to get stuck in to. Elsewhere, an early contender for banger of the year from Dame Area on Mannequin Records, there's dub-infused synth music from Teresa Winter, Swedish-Senegalese collaboration as Wau Wau Collectif and much more.

Bookended by sublime hiphop, this episode of the Independent Music Podcast takes us on a contemplative journey across the genres. From Portuguese pianist Tiago Sousa's exquisite new modern classical on Discrepant to Livingdog's tentative spatial folk sounds, there's a lot to sit back and settle in to.

It's an emotional start to this week's podcast with the final recording of podcast mainstays Tomaga. It is - as with all the music Tom and Valentina made together - absolutely stunning and it's heartbreaking no more is forthcoming.  More positively, we have a great batch of other sounds to accompany it, not least the ferocious Bugandan drumming of the Nilotika Drum Ensemble or the more experimental percussion of Poland's Arszyn.

'Atmospheric' goes some way to describing a lot of the music on the show this week. From the sublime new opus from Mexico's Murcof to the stunning cello experimentation of Simon McCorry, we have sounds that transport you to a range of different intoxicating realms.

A fantastic hour of new music this week, although the highlight could well be the sublime cut of Eswatini and South African music from 1989 that's had a reissue on France's Nyami Nyami label.  That Azumah track is bookended by two fairly gnarly pieces from Canada's Seum and Australia's Divide and Dissolve, we also have stunning ambient soundscapes from Chinese debutant Voision Xi, straight-to-disc improvisation from Sarathy Korwar and Upaj Collective, timely social commentary from Micall Parknsun and loads more.

We start 2021 with music that is generally more mellow, contemplative, but no less extraordinary than the music you're used to on the podcast. Kicking things off with avant-folk of Birdengine, there's hints of modern classical from Doug Wieselman and CARM. We also have a very early contender for most exciting record of the year, with the first taste of the debut LP from Yao Bobby and Simon Grab, there's experimental music from Superalma Project, kraut-tinged sounds from Baïkonour, a tribute to the late, great MF Doom, and much more.

We don't do 'best of' episodes at the Independent Music Podcast. Music is subjective and we love to shout about the music we love. This week, we're shouting about the music of 2020 that we love and haven't shouted about during our regular episodes. So whether it's 10-minute Finnish rock opuses, racially charged noise-jazz-hiphop, Kenyan field recordings, or Jordanian rap we've got something new(ish) and experimental for you to fall in love with. We also having pummelling techno, indie folk, choral experimental and a lot more. Tracklisting Oranssi Pazuzu - Uusi Teknokratia (Nuclear Blast, USA) Lil Asaf - El Burj (ANBA, Egypt) Tunng - Scared to Death (Full Time Hobby, UK) Screen Shadow - BOᗌIΞS (Scrnxxxshdw, UK) KMRU - Degree of Change (Seil Records, Germany) Pink Siifu - Bebe’s Kids, APOLLO ft.

If You Don´t Mind (Kashual Plastik, Germany) Produced and edited by Nick McCorriston.
Our final 'regular' show before January sees little let-up in the excellent music being produced through this mess of a year. Whether it's the spine-tingling multi-national vocals of Chant Electronique or the psychedelic fuzz of Japanese legends Mainliner, there's a lot of the good stuff in this hour-long pod. Elsewhere, live podcast regulars will be happy with two horse-related tracks from wildly different spectrums: former A Hawk and A Hacksaw violinist Heather Trosts new one is mesmerising avant-folk, whilst Giant Swan provide a blistering finale. What else? Well there's Cypriot synthpop from Spivak, possibly the best hiphop record of the year from Chester Watson, juke from Georgia's Nikki Nair and a whole lot more TracklistingSpivak - Πήγαινέ Μέ (Ecstatic Recordings, UK) DJ Danifox - Xupetilson (Principe Discos, Portugal) Chant Electronique - Kamen Gori (Rika Muzika, UK / Croatia) Mainliner - Dual Myths (Riot Season, UK) Chester Watson - Fog (feat.

The long-awaited (okay, 12 months) return of Shackleton's Tunes of Negation is a real highlight at the end of this week's show. Before that we have a treasure trove of experimental sounds, from the blistering grindcore of Sulk to the stunning modern classical of Mirry. Also on the show, we have Gazelle Twin and NYX's exquisitely unsettling cover of Paul Giovanni and Magnet's Fire Leap (from The Wicker Man), we have collage art from Negativland, cumbia from Agrupación Changó, Peruvian 8-bit coldwave and a lot more.
