Tangents #11 w/ Jai Pyne – Arthur Russell

Tangents w/ Jai Pyne is a part history lesson, part cultural anthropology, dead set bangers. Catch new episode monthly on Mondays 9:00 UK & Ireland time.

The way the show works is that Jai picks a song or album from a particular era, and every time it’s different, this has reinforced for him that great music is made every year.

Tangents 11 looks at the work of the late composer, songwriter, singer and cellist Arthur Russell. From solo voice and cello to slamming mutant disco, he covered it all.
