1/2/3/4 — #103 — The Age Of Immunology

Vanishing Twin are one of the incredibly exciting ensembles to emerge from the UK, though their members are from across the globe - Belgium, Japan, Italy, France and America. Their new album, The Age of Immunology features a diverse selection of sounds, from muscular Krautrock mantra, Morricone-esque lounge to fried-out electronic pop. You'll hear an essential track from this release plus Monnone Alone, Doug Tuttle and more.

Recorded in Nashville just before the Pandemic took over our lives, it’s a lovingly crafted collection of songs that are equally atmospheric and riff-laden. Guitarist/singer Leisha Jungalwalla joins me a chat plus excellent new music from The Catenary Wires, Minor Moon and Sunbathe.
