Studio cat Lupini brings you 猫の額 (Neko No Hitai), cruising the high seas of sound on HMS MDR
Having hosted a show with our mates on the other side of town, IWFM, we thought it was high time that she started to hold down one with us as well. Lupini aka Nina Franklin has been hard at work in the Melodic Distraction studio, becoming a familiar face on the other side of the studio webcam. Stepping away from producing shows for a moment, Lupini takes to the helm. Expect ambient storytelling, vapourwave, mumblecore, acidic percussion spasms, jazz, juke, footwork and who knows what else as she takes us on a voyage to the deep.
This time around, we’re taking a reversal of the normal order. We start off hot and heavy with bleak, future club and bass heavy sounds, take a quick pitstop at footwork and the resonant neo-classical sounds before emerging through the tunnel into sparkling ambient.
