For my latest Music Discovery programme on Soho Radio I had the absolute pleasure of being joined by Clams Baker frontman of the band Warmduscher.
They were quite literally FRESH off tour wrapping a massive UK run in Brighton the night before off the back of their fourth studio album At The Hotspot, out the week before.
Warmduscher are one of the most exciting bands around right now, evident at their massive smasher of a sold-out Kentish Town Forum show on the recent tour. Here we hear all about inspiration for the new record, switching up the label, look and producers working this time with Al Doyle and Joe Goddard from Hot Chip. The band are off to Europe next and then have a summer of festivals including Glastonbury's Park Stage in June.
Listen to the show below (second hour for the action) and watch the video of us in the studio.

Julia-Sophie is a french-electronic artist based in Oxford that I connected with in the first pandemic lockdown and instantly fell in love with her music. She's back with a brand new EP, her third titled It Feels Like Thunder and it marks the first in a trilogy of work which she plans to share throughout the rest of the year. The EP came out recently on Anna Prior of Metronomy fame's Beat Palace Records. Here we chat all about it and what's next.... Listen to the programme from Soho Radio or watch our catch up over Zoom.
Joining me live in the studio recently was the pianist and composer James Heather. He's back with his second studio album Invisible Forces out on April 22nd on Ahead Of Our Time records. For this album the artists re-invested in his home studio and played a refurbished Bosendorfer 200 grand piano.
It follows last year's acclaimed Modulations: EP2, which I loved. Thematically his new collection muses on themes of personal connection.
Listen back to the programme in which he joined me live in the second hour to play some tracks off the new record and inspiration tracks by Pixies and Rachel Grimes.
