Paul Draper, once of top-of-the-chart guitar-monsters Mansun (now producer and co-writer of The Anchoress album), has released his second single, entitled EP TWO. Hear Paul in his kitchen on his return to making records, how both his album and the Anchoress’ second are coming along, and how to get Eb to C working in a 5-bar sequence!

We also catch up with Sam Healy from North Atlantic Oscillation and Sand; NAO have released a newly curated album of their best tracks, so Sam, being a self-contained sound-designer, interviewed himself.

Plus, Bruce Soord from The Pineapple Thief took his acoustic guitar on the road across the USA opening for Steven Wilson recently. We celebrate this tour with a TPT acoustic track and a small announcement.

And, talking of Steven, this podcast is your first chance to hear music from Blackfield V, his collaboration with Aviv Geffen and Alan Parsons of Abbey Road/Dark Side of the Moon/ Pilot fame.

Lastly, we have some music from The Anchoress and Iamthemorning (both award-winners this year) from the 'rare' part of their canon.
