We’re only six weeks into 2010 and already there are a slew of enjoyable albums out. This month’s radio show tackles a load of new releases and I review gigs including the Shh! Celebration of Quiet Music and the Reverb festival at the Roundhouse. There also some chat about stuff coming up. Check below for links to stuff.

The show spans the genres from folk to techno, if you’re of a delicate disposition you might want to skip the (fucking brilliant, btw) HEALTH track…

You can download the full show from here, or check out the (limited) Spotify playlist.
