The Alternative Hour April 10

Hoxton radio April 10th

The Alternative Hour this week featured new music from fresh bands The Blossoms and Trampolene Band to Brit pop legends Gaz Coombes and Shed Seven.

Track of the Week this week was from German/ English/ Canadian singer songwriter Alice Merton with her single No Roots. She self-released the track on a label she dubbed Paper Plane Records, an homage to M.I.A.’s 2007 hit, and has since signed to Mom + Pop Music, home to Courtney Barnett.
She played Hoxton bar and kitchen last month, rumours of a full tour announcement on the way.

Declan Mckenna was on the playlist as well as Little Comets and Yonaka, Elspeth’s top recommended band of the moment.

Tune in every Tuesday 6-7pm for the Alternative Hour w Elspeth.
