Hayden Thorpe from Wild Beasts and Joe Goddard of Hot Chip have collaborated on a new track titled 'Unknown Song'. I spoke to both of them for BBC 6 Music from lockdown to see how they have been doing, what they are working on and the new track. Hear both packages that went out in Shaun Keaveny's show in the Music News.
Converse asked some of the Foundation FM DJ's to make a mix for a kind of DJ relay... one long continuous mix which you at home can add to.
This was my first mix in the home disco jungle wearing my customised Converse Spark Progress t-shirt that I'd altered to make it leopard print. Disclaimer...My monitor speakers hadn't come yet so there was a delay on my speaker so had to wing it a bit with this one on the mixes.
More streamed sets coming soon now the speakers have arrived!
Stream the whole mix including other DJs Annie O, Saint Ludo, Steph Seeks, Helena Star and Martha.
Stream my shows over on my Georgie Rogers Music Discovery profile on Mixcloud.
My latest Foundation FM show guest was somewhat epic! Had a total hoot with Inwards, a modular synth explorer/producer who picked tracks to play from AFX, Four Tet, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and more. Hear the mega lols we had about log cabins, face offs with mice and animals in general plus the time he met Aphex Twin at Bang Face and he let him crash for the night!
Listen back to the show. I had a lot of fun and as you'll find Kris/Inwards is BRILLIANT - at both the music and the chat.

My Super Women partner in crime Alice Smith and I interviewed each other for Hey Girl TV.

Minneapolis band Poliça are back with new music.
The brand new single ‘Driving’ had its world premiere with Lauren Laverne on Wednesday (9th October) and it marks the first taster of a new album ‘When We Stay Alive’, released on January 31st 2020.
The time between the ‘United Crushers’ LP in 2016 and this record was permeated with a bad accident for the singer Channy Leaneagh.
She fell 10 feet off a roof and badly broke her back, which resulted in wearing a brace for three months before starting physical therapy on the long road to recovery.
Out the other side and with a new album to boot and a world tour no less with UK dates in the diary in February we checked in with her to find out more about the new track Driving.
She started by telling me about what happened…
Earlier this year Rebecca Taylor released her debut album as Self Esteem.
The former Slow Club singer had spent a decade touring and releasing albums in the duo with Charles Watson but has since found a new freedom writing and performing her solo work which is inspired by Kanye West and Destiny’s Child but through an alt-pop filter.
Following her debut Compliments Please she has played a host of different festivals this year from All Points East to Glastonbury, Latitude to Green Man.
She is an ambassador of BBC Music Day today and nominated for Best Breakthrough at the Q Awards next month plus she revealed she has already got to work on a second album. I sat down with Rebecca Taylor for a catch up and it's always a hoot, have a listen…
