Rob da Bank - 13/03/2010 - The Unthanks In Session
Rob Da Bank's guests in the at Maida Vale are The Unthanks, who were nominated for the Mercury Prize when they were Rachel Unthank and the Winter Set. Three beautiful folky tracks from them for you to enjoy.
Are you lost in the mess of badly named, ill-definied genres? Never fear, Rob's Guide To Barely Believeable Genres is here to help. This week: UK Funky.
Also, ROBÃ¢Â€Â™S BEST AND IMPROBABLY GREAT RECORD IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOw... POSSIBLY... WELL AT LEAST FOR THIS MORNING... MAYBE comes from some Brooklyn-based mates of Yeasayer. They're called Javelin and they're rather good.
There's also dozens more wonderful tunes from the likes of The XX, Vitalic, Foals and brand new singles from MGMT and Doves.
