Feeling quite moody and eccentric this week on the Sweet and Sour Variety Hour! Having no apologies about the selections and settling into an artsy smugness about it. The sound starts off slowish and moves into a jumble of pulsing rhythms and cold vocals. If I were ordering a drink at Mo’s Tavern, I might ask for it served in a mans hat. The final fifteen minutes is a clip from Bjork’s new podcast, where each episode describes how she made each of her albums. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t completely effected. Can you hear it?

This is the file. With a little right clicking, it can be yours.
