Jan Dukes De Grey’s wyrd prog-folk

Stuart showcases Jan Dukes De Grey’s wild second album 'Mice And Rats In The Loft'. Plus there’s new music including angular modern classical and spiritual Afghan electro-jazz.

Stuart showcases Jan Dukes De Grey’s Mice And Rats In The Loft, the British trio’s second album which came out in 1971. A wild and unpredictable combination of prog and folk-rock, it ranks alongside Comus’ First Utterance as one of the strangest releases of the time. Plus, there’s new angular modern classical from Anna Meredith, Knifeworld-associated vocal group Mediaeval Baebes and Kefaya + Elaha Soroor’s globetrotting collision of Afghan music, driving jazz and modern electronic production.
