NTS Awkward Movements Show – 6.12.14

Last week’s NTS show now up on archive; stream it below or get in touch for the downloadable version.

As well as the usual mixture of experimental electronics and soundscapes – led by the likes of Nad Spiro and Constellation Botsu – we ventured in the rarely touched territory for the show, launching off in to bandspace for a decent period of time. Swans, Tarwater and Rhyton all make an appearance, as does a bit of live jazz from the late great Jaco Pastorius, coming off the back of Michael Valentine West.

We also visited a load of lo-fi house joints from the likes of PMMTuff Sherm who have a new split cassette out, The Cyclist and D. Tiffany. The Multiply LP from Duppy Gun Productions reared it’s head again, and just keeps getting better.

Stoked to have discovered Horse Lords (pictured above) out of Baltimore recently, featuring two cuts from their Hidden Cities LP on NNA Tapes. Grab that plate while you can, it’s absolutely cracking.

Full track list below, hope you dig it. Paul Ackroyd aka Kamikaze in session for Awkward Movements next week, going out on NTS the 20th of December, make sure you’re listening.

As always, out to those who locked in or are chasing archive. Incidentally we’ll be shifting slots int he New Year, stay tuned for more info.
