We did Bass Day on BBC Radio 6 Music over the August bank holiday and the same weekend electronic duo Bicep headlined Field Day/All Points East in East London's Victoria Park. I took the opportunity to speak to the guys Andy and Matt about their return to festivals and how drum and bass and jungle influenced their sound.

Former frontman of The Maccabees Orlando Weeks is back with his second solo album since the band split. Hop Up will be out in January 2022 and so far he's shared three tracks from it.
I spoke to him for BBC Radio 6 Music news in between Big Skies Silly Faces and Deep Down Way Out to find out more about the tracks, the album, working with producer Bullion and getting sun burnt in England while doing some expert trampolining for a new music video.

On my latest run on Music News on BBC Radio 6 Music I had the pleasure of speaking with singer-songwriter José González about his recently release album Local Valley, his first studio album in more than six years.
We spoke about being slow, the making of the album, fatherhood and how he computes the bonkers numbers of streams he's amassed with his music.
