Spool’s Out Radio #167: 2019 Rewind

For a year when the mainstream failed to be defined by any major new musical voices, the importance of the global underground of oddballs mailing tapes to each other felt particularly important. This month’s show is a look back on the year, with a few choice cuts from tape I found myself replaying and replaying, from I Jahbar’s fiery mixtape of wild dancehall, to Byron Westbrook’s epic synth wig outs, to Rojin Sharafi and YATTA’s unique indefinable compositions, and much else. Original sounds continue to emerge from the tape-released music scene – like primordial live first crawling from the oceans.
