This is a track that I found via the BBC Playlister, which has definitely played a big role in shaping my list this year. It was going around in my head and took me a while to track down where I’d heard it. I eventually clicked on – and saved – it when hearing it on 6 Music. The days of holding up a portable tape player to one of the speakers on my radio seem a long time ago now.
Sohn is a British artist based in Vienna and this is ‘The Wheel’ from the album ‘Tremors’ released on 4AD earlier this year, although this track predates that. Shades of Laurie Anderson, which is no bad thing….
