It’s always interesting to put the pictures together and try to make out some kind of story. What happened to self-mythologising poetry in notebooks, it’s gone visual and viral like everyone else’s. And where are the people? Next week we must have some people.
The new single from The Normalites aka Chris Coco and Steve Miller from Afterlife is out now on Steve’s Subatomic label. Get it here.
Chris Coco’s weekly radio broadcast. An eclectic selection of brilliant new music starting with house and moving on to electronica, downtempo, acoustic and all sorts of other styles loosely connected to dance and electronic music. Let tastemaker Chris Coco guide you through his selection of the week’s best new music. This Episode it’s all about retro modern, contemporary vintage and other marketing style oxymorons. In plain English, that’s music that’s sort of new but sounds kind of old and whether it’s old or new it’s like totally cool, you get me?

Let tastemaker Chris Coco guide you through his selection of the week’s best new music. Oh, this episode is, maybe the first signs of spring, because there’s more than a dash of acoustic instruments, some joyful singing from the rafters and an overall live feel from the fuzzy feeling on.So we start with some city life. that means some new house, then some very beautiful new songs from brilliant new bands and then we’re off to the islands for some gloriously Balearic business, but don’t worry, the hour ends back where we started, in the big smoke. Listen, it will all come clear.
