Morning Glory's Autumn Harvest

I'm trying to avoid clogging up my blog with my radio shows (of course if you're that way inclined you can always hear more over here), however I felt I should share this special program I put together to celebrate the coming of Autumn. Musically I wanted to reflect upon the beauty and melancholy of my most favourite of seasons. I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed recording it.

Metamono 'With the compliments of Nuclear Physics'

The frankly brilliant Metamono are a London-based collective responsible for "soldering together latterday mechanical mutations from equipment too prematurely discarded by capitalism's hellbent tendency towards planned obsolescence". Musically, this translates as a hugely varied electronic trip steered by grizzled synths, fidgety drum machines and other such decrepit, dust-laden noise boxes. Their sound is warm, fuzzy and eccentric, recalling classic techno and electronica from yesteryear as well as fellow retro-enthusiasts such as the Ghost Box collective. Metamono have self-released a couple of very limited vinyl editions of their debut album 'With the compliments of Nuclear Physics' which you can find here, as well as a cassette.

This is undoubtedly one of the finest albums I've heard this year. Check it out below!
