Radio Show: December 13th, 2009 // Little Dragon + :Kinema: interviews

Little Dragon

It must be the time of year – the heady mix of mulled wine and brandy butter in the bloodstream – but this week, Totally Wired flew by in a storm of OfCom-baiting guffaws and woops. In order to not preempt next weeks (first of two) Best of 2009 show (more of which later), you’ll hear a fair smattering of oldies from such disco wizards as Siedah Garrett, The Units, Lisa, Comateens and Stargaze. It wouldn’t be Totally Wired though if there wasn’t a whole raft of up to the minute works of minor (and major) genius, and filling that particular niche this week were newbies from Yeasayer, Hot Chip (two big albums coming early next year from them), as well as Appaloosa, Foreign Born, Chapel Club, Silje Nes, Slow Club and Cinnamon Chasers.

The headline news however is not one, but two amazing bands, interviewed this week just for us. The first is Sweden’s oddball popsters Little Dragon, who spilled the beans to Dionne after their triumphantly sweaty sold-out show this week. Topics covered included meeting at school, the music scene in Gothenburg, and a February sea swim in Brighton. Scandinavians are CRAZY.

Next in the interview hotseat were Brighton super-pop synthsters :Kinema:, who we caught up with before they soundchecked for their Little Dragon support slot. They told us all about the roadtrip of their conception, about searching for a producer only to find him in the band all along, about their upcoming Circles EP and about their love for Ne-Yo. Neato!

Well, this is our last normal (so to speak) show of the year. Next week we’ll be rounding up our favorite albums of the year, climaxing in a countdown of the top ten of 2009, and the week after we’ll do the same for our fave standalone track of the year. Give the show a listen right here – it’s a bloomin’ corker!
