Revitalised sounds and private press cassettes

Jennifer Lucy Allan welcomes in the new year with music for donuts by composer Robin Richards and private press gems from the western Sahara.

Jennifer Lucy Allan welcomes in the new year with fresh releases, revitalised sounds and private press gems including a lost cassette from the 90s by Sahwari musicians El Wali, new releases from Indonesian cassette label Hasana Editions and a meeting of sound poetry and chamber music on Sean McCann’s Recital Records.

Elsewhere we sink our teeth into the debut EP by Robin Richards from Dutch Uncles, which features Gregorian chant, rhythm-led music concrète and a limited edition doughnut which, in keeping with the EP, blends Welsh and Estonian influences.

Produced by Alannah Chance.
A Reduced Listening Production for BBC Radio 3.
