So after a brief sojourn (where did those five years go?), our presenting penguin has emerged from the fog, waddling on to a new seaside vista and after some puzzlement, plugged the cable back in. Fizz, crackle and pop: once again he is transmitting his discoveries out to the world, produced by a team of the best (or the cheapest) maverick seagulls.
In this month's expedition into new music he encounters some socks, a ship, a purple rose and a unicorn that catches a falling star in heaven. Lie back and lose yourself with the catchup show, listen here on mixcloud.
Support them and us: if you enjoy what you hear, we have two suggestions: firstly consider investing in the music of the artists you enjoyed- links on playlist below. The second is please consider buying Ben a cup of tea as a thumbs up and thank you for this musical adventure via ko-fi.com/arcticcircle.
