Cycles Per Second 02/08/23: Bandcamp, etc. Links

On this week’s show, a post-Bandcamp Friday bounty: UK sounds doomy (Drahla) to punk-funk-n-jazzy (A Certain Ratio). Japanese shoegaze (SPOOL, plant cell), Aussie jangle (Monnone Alone), and spiky-sparky pop from Glasgow (Water Machine, Dancer). American indie from Maine (The Ekphrastics) to SF (The Reds, Pinks & Purples) to Memphis (Elf Rage) to Seattle (Spiral XP). And reissues from a 90s Aussie-American collab (The Shapiros) and early 80s vintage Welsh post-punk (Violin Sect).
