Cronchy & Jangly

This week we welcome back Gem Spear to, as she shares a playlist of tracks from 1999, inspired by a conversation with a Lyft driver in Portland. It tangles perfectly with a show filled with crunchy guitars from our featured record of the week, Sleater-Kinney's The Center Won't Hold. With production from Annie Clarke it's an impressive hybrid record from the band, simultaneously channelling their 90s tone with synthy highlights reminiscent of St. Vincent's MASSEDUCTION.

Enjoy all of that, plus new tracks from Temples, Gruff Rhys, and Supergrass.
