Composer/vocalist Olga Bell is a restless explorer of sound, and utterly relentless in her passion for creativity. After touring stints with Dirty Projectors and Chairlift, she has spent recent years focused on her own work. This week she joins me from New York for a chat about her recent explorations into dance-pop and about what it's like being a Russian-American in 2017.
You'll also hear new music from UK poet/musician Obongjayar, and Melbourne dance producers STATUE and Ara Koufax. Undisputed master of atmosphere Burial is back with another gorgeous slow burner, and we dip into the total sonic headspin that is the debut album from Chicago footwork veteran Jana Rush.
