This week we've been a bit torn; we crave the warm summer sun but there's something so lovely about those crisp, sunny winter mornings that feels clearer and calmer. This show represents those warm slices of pop, R&B and electronica that are reminiscent of warmer summer days, but have their own chilly little elements to them too. The new Steve Hauschildt and Sun Glitters, well, glitter, and FaltyDL and Funkineven & Fatima's new material is really fantastic too.
R&B is becoming more sophisticated and innovative by the day it seems; Solange Knowles' work with Dev Hynes of Blood Orange has been surprisingly good, Jeremih's new mixtape has become a favourite of the year and Ango continues to be one of the most fragile and lovely falsetto's around. Also, sorry for the rough voice from me (Lauren) too, tonsilitis is a cruel beast.
A big thank you to everyone who came to Codeine Drums #2, the guests were so pleased with the crowd reaction and we'll be sure to carry that fun vibe on into the next one.
Thanks for listening.15:00 - 16:00
