“Does sound even travel through air that cold?”

It's Ben's birthday show. That's not really a thing, but we did mention it quite a lot and play London Calling, so there's that. Otherwise, it's business as usual from Ben and Simon and we bring you a blitz of awesome new music. Special attention to the new Young Fathers track “Rain or Shine” and Open Mike Eagle's “Dark Comedy Late Show”, both of which really, really hit the spot this week.
