Part 2 of our show to get you beyond the tedium of lockdown. And what a show. Mr Warlow has joined me for a battle, chosing some fine tunes to supplement my own noises from the cellar. Where but on Paradox Room can you mix French Afrobeat with now wave, US black punk from the early 70’s, freeform jazz prog and more slices of French brilliance than you can shake a baguette at? Stay Alert. Our Room will keep you safe.
Another month. Another show. But now we have a captive audience. Close the blinds. Shut out that dangerous world and immunise your mind for some great new and archive sounds from the likes of Minami Deutsch, Capitol K, Wooden Shjips and Pigsx7. Let us keep you safe.
Seeing out the decade with another seasonal mix, courtesy of Snapped Ankles, Nolan Potter, Jane Weaver, Flying Lotus, to name-drop incredulously. Come in out of the cold for another cwtch with the PRoom elves.
This show was first broadcast on 30.10.16. A startling mix of classic horror movie themes. In the Paradox Room, no-one can hear you scream.
It’s the season of light and shade, warmth and cold. So what better than to grab a blanket and listen to the latest mix of curated sound, courtesy of Green Man Festival players Snapped Ankles, Stereolab and Skinny Pelembe, plus a smattering of unearthly gems. We send you the last embers of summer to embrace. Join us.
A deep sound system reggae mix for reclining and unwinding. Let the lion into your spirit. Nuh let di bad vibes drag yuh inna di dark waves enjoy di rhythms an soul (*best not pronounced in a Welsh accent).
Easter 2018 Special – El Paraiso Records
A look back to our show featuring the great Denmark label. A feast of the best psych and stoner rock out there.
The first glimpses of summer brings another bunch of blooms from the garden. Pop a beer and sit out on your favourite sun lounger to bask in the rays with Oh Sees, Bob Mould, Stereolab, Elephant 9, The Orb, Fontaines DC and other dazzling flowers. But don’t fly to close or you’ll burn your wings.
Mr Warlow has curated a tribute to the exceptional and enigmatic musical genius Scott Walker (who died on 25 March 2019). We won’t dwell on inflated eulogies, but prefer to let the music be his epitaph.
Have you ever stepped into an abandoned building or entered an unlit tunnel? Your mind leaps into imaginary corners where unknown souls appear faintly in the gloom. This is the theme of this month’s show. A collection from the hidden side of music’s landscape. A place where most never go, with names nobody ever knows. But shine a light in and you’ll find creativity, colour and innovation; gemstones from the mines of freemusicarchive.org. Emerging sounds of drum’n’bass, death drone metal, glitch, electronica, jazz, etc. Music, like life, takes a leap of faith sometimes. Dig deep and discover the riches.
