In this patrons-only bonus episode, Jeremy and Tim have a conversation about what music has been on their turntables recently.

In a genre-busting and wide-ranging discussion we consider potential connections between the current wave of excellent ambient psychedelic jazz releases from labels like Chicago's International Anthem with '90s Post Rock and the '70s Minimalism; explore the fresh and surprising offerings of '70s Belgium and the unusually Cuban sounds of '60s Senegal; and consider how Reggae covers of American and British pop songs are expressions of Gilroy's Black Atlantic.

Also in this episode we hear a Brazilian Tropicalia tune about the apparent founder of a universal mystic gnostic philosophy, contemplate the religion and theology of Late Antiquity, enjoy an exciting spurt of post-Jungle energy from contemporary London, and end with a playful and trippy dub remix fresh from a party.

This is part of a rough series of more conversational, unplanned episodes reflecting on what's been on our record players recently and what we've been up to that we'll be releasing to patrons to say thank you for your support.
