    Nemone sits in for Lauren in what was a pretty bumper week. Kele Okereke's taking time out from Bloc Party to play tracks from his new album 'Trick', and gossip about future projects. On Tuesday Paul Hartnoll from Orbital came in following the announcement of the group’s split, drying our tears with info about his new collaborative project 8:58. Chris Hewitt reviews the week’s film releases including Brad Pitt in Fury. Wednesday saw Simian Mobile Disco and their ‘spaghetti junction’ synths arrive in the studio to discuss recording their latest album ‘Whorl’ in the bizarre movie set/desert community of Pioneertown in California, and Lamb almost rendered Nemone speechless on Thursday (not helpful, Lamb!) with two tracks from recently released Backspace Unwind.

    For this special standalone podcast, we catch up with U2’s Bono and The Edge following the unconventional release of their latest album Songs of Innocence. They take us back to the roots of the band at school in an unstable Dublin, failing to be punks, singing like girls and the personal difficulties which influenced their music. Bono also dishes the dirt on being fired as the “toaster” in Bill Murray’s band The Venetian Blinds, and The Edge muses that anyone who doesn’t like U2 just isn’t trying hard enough.

  • 6 Music Live at Maida Vale

    This week Lauren and co. were down at the historic BBC Maida Vale Studios for another unmissable 6 Music Live. We kicked off the first show with the lovely Johnny Marr who brought along his sherwood green guitar and a resplendent set of pedals to perform a set featuring tracks off his new album ‘Playland’ as well as some old favourites. The next day First Aid Kit filled the room with gold and melted hearts with their honeyed voices and a very harrowing Jack White cover. Wednesday saw electronic music veterans Underworld turned Studio 3 into a midday rave with tracks from Dubnobasswithmyheadman. Thursday’s La Roux talked about her five year hiatus from music and performed from both her debut album and the new, groovy Trouble in Paradise. Finally James finished the week off with some mad dancing (seriously, check it out) and first-rate tunes from 30-odd years’ worth of back catalogue. Each show will be available to watch on the red button next week and also on iPlayer.

    This week, the very lovely Dan Snaith aka Caribou came in to talk to Lauren about his new album ‘Our Love’, high school equipment theft, and improvising trousers out of shirts (The InvertShirt™), as well as kindly delivering a blinding session of two tracks from the record. Empire Magazine reviewer (and 10k runner) Chris Hewitt critiqued David Finch’s ‘Gone Girl’, ‘Dracula Untold’ and ‘’71’. And we still can’t get over the fact that all-round genius and Talking Heads’ founder Mr David Byrne was in the 6 Music studio to discuss his new theatre project, the importance of taking risks, and collaborating with some of the world’s best musicians. Yes, David Byrne! We need a sit down.

Not to be missed.
