Prog funk, Arabic dubstep, country balladry and Amazonian electropop, anyone?

Neo-country singer Danni Nicholls: charmed Peter

Another session of Peter, Joe, some amazing records and some musing on their whys and wherefores - originally broadcast live on NTS Radio out of London's fashionable Dalston.

This time around we touch on how humans imitate technology and vice versa (with reference to autotune and Wilko Johnson), on the inspiration for Paul Simon lyrics, and on how retro-ism can be the freshest thing around. The music covers everything from prog-funk to raging Arabic dubstep, country balladry to Amazonian electro-pop. Tune in, turn on, you know the rest...
