A Milestone! Episode 100 of 1/2/3/4. No trumpet fanfare (we did have a trombone last episode), just a selection of some of the best new music. Firefly Burning are a folk ensemble with a progressive arthouse twist, I’ve long admired their work and excited by their upcoming new release. Produced by Tim Friese-Greene this is a stunning collection of adventurous songs. As well, Brian Campeau and Hannah Cameron join forces as Brain Romance, their first single reveals some sublime harmonies. Plus new essential tracks from Cate Le Bon, Nev Cottee and a tribute to Patrick Gibson.
