Warm Beer

This week we welcome DJ Hammy from Thursday night's Cheap Beer. He's playing a whole host of jams from his vinyl collection. Plus, we indulge in Emmy the Great's First Love, around the time of its 10th anniversary. Emmy has been touring it around the UK in celebration so we play some cuts of her delightfully idiosyncratic subjects and pick out some other gems from that so-called “anti-folk” era of UK indie singer-songwriters.
