What Would You Like?

This week's self-isolation lockdown home-studio episode features British Sea Power's brilliant third album, Do You Like Rock Music? And from that really comes a whole show of formative UK rock scene music from 2007/2008, memories of the SXSW and Great Escape festivals those years, and just how many records came out that at a real bouyant peak for British indie.

It's definitely been enjoyable to get a little nostalgic, although we do play one brand new piece of music that's very worth your attention: Braid's new Snow Angel.

No Magic will be back again next week, sheltering in place like the best of them.
