Mint Podcast: Close Encounters of the Heard Kind #6 *Christmas Special*

Categorised as Uncategorized

This week our podcast, Close Encounters of the Heard Kind, has gone mega festive. From our sack we have plucked the best Christmas covers and special releases from artists of the past, present and future. There is a failed attempt at dubstep and some more love for both 2005 and Scandinavians and possibly even a slight embrace of the BBC sound of 2012 list. Expect lo-fi values offset by festive cheer and some informative words from your hosts, Marcus Harris and Ian James.

Merry Christmas and we will catch you next week for our favourite tracks of the year!
