#419 - Forest Swords, Vanishing Twin, Derya Yildirim & Graham Mushnik, Ethan P. Flynn, E.M.M.A., Flesh & The Dream - 24 July 2023
Starting with an opus is a wonderful way to return after a week off, and the new collaboration between Shackleton and Heather Leigh is a fantastic bolt out of the blue that shifts through the genres in the same way the whole podcast tends to do.
Elsewhere, we’re raising money for the cancer treatment for artist Glenda Torrado (PayPal donations: firstname.lastname@example.org), celebrating the surprising return of Small But Hard records, and have long-awaited new music from Forest Swords and E.M.M.A.
With new Vanishing Twin, hardcore satanic boogie, and experimental pop music amongst others, this is a cracking pod to celebrate the breadth of superb music being made today.
You can listen to the first six tracks for free. To listen to the full episode, get a huge back catalogue of music, and access to our live shows and Discord group, please join our Patreon: patreon.com/independentmusicpodcast. The podcast only survives with Patron support
