Janelle Monae at Totally Wired

From the arctic tundra of the overly air-conditioned Totally Wired studio, over the airwaves to you dear listener! If you’re having trouble keeping track of all of Dionne’s comings and go-ings, then join the club… is this her glorious return, or are we now bored of the sound of her voice? Either way, she is all present and correct this week, and serving up some crispy waffles and syrupy tunes of the highest order, along with her hunchback sidekick Matt.

Hot n fresh out the kitchen this week are new tracks from the delectable Janelle Monae, a Tanlines remix of Bombay Bicycle Club, a Bjork cover by the Dirty Projectors, some Holy Ghost, Au Revoir Simone, Glass Candy, Fang Island, Wild Nothing and, of course, the all conquering CasioKids in celebration of their amazing win at the A-Ha Music Awards in Norway. (I don’t think that’s what the award is called, but they did win a wicked prize, and it was given to them by A-Ha, and it was in Norway). Gratulerer!!

The Whispers on Totally Wired

Solo effort! Yes that’s right, Dionne the globetrotting prima donna is away, and this time Matt manfully (ahem) steps into the breach and presents the show on his tod! As with most boys left up to their own devices, things get a little seedy, but unlike many boys, it’s mostly disco innuendo. Innu-disco? Disco-endo? In your endo? It’s happening again…

So you’ve got Right In The Socket by Shalamar, plus more fresh sauce from Mickey Moonlight, Brighton’s very own Videodrome – big disco hopes there! – alongside :Kinema:, Maximum Balloon, Yeasayer, Arial Pink’s Haunted Grafitti, The Wave Pictures, Tame Impala and Metronomy. Phew. Boy-brains aren’t all bad – see? Click right there to hear the show!
