PR031 - Number Station

Today we will try to answer some questions. Who is Lee "Scratch" Perry and what has he done lately? What do the numbers mean? Who is Manramp? Is he more man than machine? Or is he more ramp than man? Is Bradford Cox still sad all the time, or has he found some measure of happiness?

New music from Wolf Alice, Wolf Parade, LCD Soundsystem, and Protomartyr. A little shout out to Matador records. Some post-rock and loops. Some hip-hop. Some trip-hop. And then some new music from Sneaks.
