The Hello Goodbye Show at noon – Lesley Woods + French For Cartridge

March 30th, 2015 · No Comments

The Hello Goodbye Show at noon today features live music from Lesley Woods (ex-Au Pairs) – back with a solo performance, playing two new songs and a re-worked version of Repetition (which she first did on Au Pairs’ album Playing with a Different Sex). Plus French For Cartridge, a London-based band formed as an attempt to create atonal pop music whilst at Goldsmiths. They have recently released (on Dinner With Daisy Records) We Humans, the follow-up to their acclaimed 2010 album Liquorice. For this collection of genre defying, style bending art pop, French For Cartridge has again worked with S. Husky Höskulds (Tom Waits, Fantomas, Meshell Ndegeocello), who has enveloped the songs in a suitably twisted aural landscape. [Repeated Monday 3am.]
