We set this site up to archive our radio shows but also intend it to be a kind of forum for music related to the show. So consider this an invite to get in touch with anything you would like us to shout about such as new label releases or upcoming gigs. If you are a label we don’t know about or your band is jumping with excitement about your new song/album, give us a shout.
The archive for the shows is now complete and we will update it on a regular basis, just click on the links and it will take you to the archived show on Mixcloud.
Don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter.
Thanks for dropping by.

Hello Chums, Antiquated Future Records have a new release to tell you about…..
Tucker Theodore “Lady Hope”
Next week (August 25th) we’re releasing Lady Hope, the latest from Olympia psych-folk artist Tucker Theodore (of such groups as Buffalo Voice and Midwife).
In 2013, we put out his solo debut, To Make the Sun Hurt. Since no one had heard of him and he was a recluse who didn’t play shows, we made 50 tapes and called it a day.
Those 50 somehow sold out instantly, and it’s gone on to be our best-selling digital album. Eventually, after receiving dozens of emails and inquiries about it, we were convinced to reprint the tapes. We couldn’t be more pleased that people have found it.
Lady Hope is an epic. An hour-long journey that’s in many ways an unlikely companion piece to To Make the Sun Hurt. It premieres this Monday, the 21st (the day of the eclipse) on our favorite UK music blog, Various Small Flames. I can’t imagine a better solar eclipse soundtrack than this wild album. In the meantime, you can listen to a couple tracks tracks on Bandcamp and Soundcloud. (And also preorder a tape, because they’re going fast!)

Yeah ok, we are a little bit late on this as it was released on May 26th but check it out….
Sweden already boasts some of the most exciting names in modern psychedelia, and now, rising out of a desolate winter to join the ranks is NONN (the monikor of Christian Eldefors from The Orange Revival) with his brooding post-punk/coldwave. London label Fuzz Club Records released the debut self-titled LP May 26th.
His bleak, icy surroundings in northern Sweden inevitably became a huge influence on this project. Blurring the line between sharp, glacial post-punk and the industrial electronic aesthetic of the 80s. Although contemporary in feel, it’s hard to listen to these tracks and not picture them sound-tracking moments of sheer euphoria in some sticky-floored warehouse in 80s Berlin. It’s got it all; the minimal droning synths, kosmische drum-machine percussion, jangling post-punk guitars and echoing, forlorn vocals. There’s something here for lovers of psych-rock, post-punk and electronica alike.
Featured on the show of the 2nd July check it out here.
