Verity Sharp

Out of this world music for late-night, hypnagogic listeners. Featured artists include Orca Noise Unit, Yazz Ahmed, Llio Rhydderch, Linda Sharrock, and Slagr.

Out of this world music for late-night, hypnagogic listeners: acoustic quintet Orca Noise Unit master the art of oneironautics; avant-garde vocalist Linda Sharrock engages in primal improvisation; chamber-folk trio Slagr explore the edges of consciousness; jazz musician Yazz Ahmed takes her flugelhorn on a nocturnal ramble; and triple harp player Llio Rhydderch reveals private evocative recordings from the Dream Studios.

Verity also takes a moment to pay tribute to "The Velvet Bulldozer", bluesman Albert King, who was born 95 years ago this month.

Produced by Jack Howson for Reduced Listening.
