If There Is Hell Below... Hardcore Lite

Download: If There Is Hell Below... Hardcore Lite

Callum and Rob are back from a week off, after a heady weekend in Berlin, which is like East London without that trademark grey sky which has swallowed up the UK sky. You can expect the kind of optimism and joy for music you’d expect from a podcast where only blue sky ideals reign.

These beams of joy radiate from power-pop elite Pujol, the Soundcarriers and their sunshine-exotica-library-jazz and from the timeless sound of Lee Field & The Expressions. There’s psych from Circulatory System, jangle from Melted Toys and classic punk from Hard Left.
There’s plenty more inside; make a friend with us today.

If There Is Hell Below Podcast... The Official Podcast


Rob & Callum are back with the official podcast of power pop, a podcast which is coincidently also the official podcast of the Bay Area not recorded in the Bay Area.
Both said area and genre covered with thanks to Dancer, there's also punk from Watery Love and Little Big League, soul funk from Daptones latest signing Naomi Shelton and pop (but not really pop) from High Ends. As usual, there's more besides. Tell your friends the Ark is an infinite vessel.

If There Is Hell Below... St-Ark

Welcome aboard the St-Ark, it’s like the podcast Ark but it’s gone intergalactic, taken to the stars and beyond. Have a seat at the never-ending captain’s table helmed by Rob and Callum your hosts of this podcast and this little music and chat journey.

In-keeping with the sounds of universe are cosmic psychedelic hip hop sounds from Shabazz Palaces, Ghost McGrady and Psymun. However, we need to keep ourselves grounded, need to remember ‘the old world’ so we have power pop from Big Eyes, lo-fi garage from Total Control and Viet Cong and some Finnish psych-prog from Drn Drn. Plus there’s other tracks in this mystical beyond and be sure to try out your ‘task of the week’ as detailed at the end of the pod.

If There Is Hell Below Podcast... Paisley Rubbish

It’s only after a few weeks have passed that Rob & Callum can finally face the wreckage of that great lost podcast, a sunken piece of the ark lost to the mysterious city of lost broadcasting. You didn’t hear it but it was GOLD and it’s gone - FOREVER.
Luckily every week we try to replicate such dynamism with the help of a week’s worth of music that we’re both got excited about.
Zig Zags return as the quintessential ITHB band with some obnoxious heavy and fun, sleazy rock, BIG KRIT continues to be utterly incredible with every release, Theo Verney is representing garage rock on this dull rock (UK) and Floating Points brings some New Orleans funk to Fatima’s pop soul.
Plus other delights, step on the ark for a bit and listen.
