Arthur Russell’s Dub-Cello

Stuart digs into the rough charm and dub-like cello of Arthur Russell’s only solo album plus Norwegian chapel grooves encounter Polynesian-influenced slide guitar.

Stuart digs into the rough charm and dub-like cello of Arthur Russell’s only solo album, World Of Echo. There’s simmering new music from Polish post-punk group Trupa Trupa, harp balladeer Joanna Newsom and Trond Kallevåg Hansen blends Norwegian chapel grooves with Polynesian-influenced slide guitar. Plus an extract from New Weird Britain, a Radio 4 series looking at communities of radical artists making music in the margins of British society.
