Description

In April, we adored biting and beautiful indie rock from Pom Pom Squad and Flock of Dimes, witnessed Zao's metallic brutality, were transported by Catalan multi-instrumentalist Rita Payés and kora player Toumani Diabaté, and were reminded why we love ILOVEMAKONNEN.

Songs featured on this episode:
• Pom Pom Squad: "Head Cheerleader" from Death of a Cheerleader
• Flock of Dimes: "Awake for the Sunrise" from Head of Roses
• Zao: "Creator/Destroyer" from The Crimson Corridor
• Rita Payés: "Nunca vas a comprender" from Como La Piel
• Toumani Diabaté & London Symphony Orchestra: "Elyne Road" from Kôrôlén
• ILOVEMAKONNEN: "So Saucy" from My Parade
