The Listening Club - 28th February 2016

Greetings folks and happy leap year for tomorrow, hope you're doing fine. Cold but clear here in Amsterdam, coming down after a rather bonkers night of oddball electronica at the annual Sonic Acts festival. Brain feeling well and truly tenderised by the combination of bonks, beeps, bangs and beers, indeed...

Last week @JimMcCauley was running things whilst I was away in old Brighton towne, and hosted @cdrose_writer's pick of Yorkston/Thorne/Khan's "Everything Sacred", which was decreed "quite interesting" by the assembled. Many thanks to Chris for the pick and for flipping the frisbee across to @wojsvenwoj for next week...

But first, yes, bolt the doors, batten down the hatches, secure the exits and confiscate the earplugs, for there is no escape from the #cringerapvortex. We have 12 choice selections of misguided rhythmic wordplay, and frankly, that's more than plenty. Seriously, I needed some protective gauntlets to handle some of these submissions. May god have mercy on our souls.

Direct download is here, and the hearthis stream is...

See you at 8pm GMT if you've got the bottle.
