Radio Show: October 18th 2009 // Golden Drums

The Drums

Much talk this week of The Drums, New York / Florida’s sunshine popsters. Dionne and Matt both brought tracks to play (Dionne naturally turning this happy coinkydink into a competition, insisting her choice was the “better” song – insecurity much?), and both lit up the show (both songs that is, not the presenters…). Dionne’s new favourite band (play count 185 since last Tuesday) played at Iceland Airwaves this weekend, and we were there in spirit. Check out their hyperventilating set here.

Elsewhere, there was the tingle of gold left right and centre – Fool’s Gold’s wonderful stuff (albeit diminished in Dionne’s eyes by their apparently sub-standard video), Golden Silvers bring back memories of their NME gig last week, and have you seen Julian Casabancas’ new artwork… crumbs…

And it’s afrobeat central in part 3 as we pay tribute to the king, Fela Kuti, who would have been 71 years young this week. Expect a veery long track sandwiched with new generation Nigerian Nneka and Norway’s finest adopted Nigerian offspring, CasioKids.

Anyhoo, this show was another big fun – listen here and join in! What we played is just down below.
