The No RipCast: Volume 8

In this month's episode of the No RipCast, David Coleman, Joe Rivers and Matt Montgomery are in the pod discussing the world of music. Happily, Santa has been kind and brought some new microphones, so you can hear all the goings on in better quality than ever. In episode 8, we attempt to answer the following:

  • What have you been listening to?
  • Why do some musicians see "twee" as a dirty word?
  • Does the success of Frank Ocean, The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky et al mean the free mixtape is the way forward for new artists?

In our regular Show & Tell feature, we investigate the world of under-the-radar pop with Robyn, Little Jackie and Nicola Roberts, and fly the flag for music which isn't often critically acclaimed.

As usual, you can stream the podcast from the link below, but for the more efficient among you, the only way to ensure you get the No RipCast straight to your desktop as soon as it's released is subscribing via iTunes.
