Andy's two hour July show features loads of the latest new music, including God Damn, Algiers, Pretty Pink, Yak, Malcolm Middleton and his alter ego Human Don't Be Angry, Communions, Lanks, Azure Blue, Palma Violet and Kid Wave.
New music this month arrives in long player form from Wetdog, Peach Kelli Pop, Sauna Youth and our favourite bi-bilingual political sax punk party, the Downtown Boys. There's also new tracks from Durham's No Ditching, Austin's Ghetto Ghouls, and the new Lhf EP featuring contributions from Hackney's jungle pioneers The Ragga Twins.
Tunes for the feet come from the new Container album, South Africa's Shangaan ambassador Nozinja, Dusseldorf's Durian Brothers, the debut on R&S from Dublin's Lakker and Malian Balani Show duo Supreme Talent Show.
There's M. Ashraf & Noor Jehan from a collection of rarities from Pakistan's lesser-known 70's and 80's teen flicks, Niger's relentlessly energetic Tal National, classic 70's reggae from Dennis Alcapone and incredible Congolese 7 piece Mbongwana Star.
Plus electronic sounds from Pye Corner Audio and Helm, fierce drum & bass from Source Direct, post punk greatness from the Inflatable Boy Clams, The Method Actors and Gardening by Moonlight, and complete weirdness from The Eccentronic Research Council.
Geez, are we halfway through the year already? Well, nothing's really changed with me, except that I've got a motherload of tunes to share with ya this month.
The Ethical Debating Society and Totem Terrors are locked in an epic shouting match out front; Debruít and Niagara are spinnin wax for their world dance night, while Mumbles and The School prance with joy; the Membranes rock the rooftop under a clear starry sky; Girlpool and O-Face swap tour stories at the merch table; Spray Paint and Container swap drugs out back.
Let's not also forget 2nd appearances from Body in the Thames (I'm gonna say it RIGHT this time), Toy Shop Ghost, Factory Acts, and The Fifth Runway, not to mention some dazzling star power from FFS, Algiers, and Prurient. Plus for the big finale, prepare thyself for an out-of-body experience with the almighty A Middle Sex. Along with the usual ramblings and miscellaneous artists you've never heard of. HUZZAH!
Got a packed show for you this month, 48 tunes crammed into three hours no less.
There are TWO featured albums. One from Terakaft and the other from Nottingham noise mongers, Grey Hairs. There's reggae from The 5 Love, bhangra from Manna Dhillon and old skool garage vibes from Azealia Banks.
There's bass sounds from Mapps and sonic art from Laura Clough.
It ain't a bad effort and do look out for the compilation album I've put together to try to raise money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association at supportingmnd.bandcamp.com
We've got a much anticipated session from the amazing Videa Gam this month, while the LXXII label that brought him to our attention also feature with their most recent release, from Iceland's Erosynilegt. There are also two featured albums, with three tracks apiece from a brilliantly off-the-wall Eurovision compilation from the Soft Bodies label and a compilation in aid of Motor Neurone Disease curated by Dandelion's very own Mark Cunliffe.
Other albums worthy of note get a much-deserved look-in: they include the marvellous new collection from The Ethical Debating Society, a colossal French masterpiece from Le cercle des Mallissimalistes, something new from No Joy and a couple of cracking self-released efforts from show favourites Dementio13 and Ian Thistlethwaite.
The prolific Ital pops up again, as does a tune from the new album from Twomanting, some stunning dub from Egoless and a whole bunch of great Bandcamp EP releases from the likes of Pulco, Thee Amazing Andy California, SNOOTY GARBAGEMEN and Russia's shortbus 1999.
Continuing the celebration of his 50th birthday from June, Dandelion Radio co-founder and former regular DJ Neil Jenkins plays the second installment of his favourite 50 tunes of all time. Could he be catching the DJing bug again?
There seems to be more of a dub influence on Pete's show than usual this month, with dub-infused tunes from Cambodia, Turkey and Argentina cropping up.
Elsewhere there's a slew of great new releases from some of the usual suspects, especially White Manna, Dementio13, The Holydrug Couple and The Membranes, plus some great new finds and favourites of the future, like The Privies, Art Trip and the Static Sound and Little Albert.
Plus we squeeze in a couple of corkers from yesteryear, including a tune covered by The Fall at Glastonbury 2015.
This month's show features the debut session from Canadian / American duo Plasticon, as well as new tracks from The Spook School; Two White Cranes; Girl One And The Grease Guns; Mammoth Penguins; Chook Race; Static Daydream; Jon K; Dark Willow; The Basement Benders; Mia & Tuesday; Dispute Settlement Mechanism; The Fur Coats; Martha; and Jessica & The Fletchers.
There's a preview of some of the bands playing at this year's Indietracks Festival, which takes place in Derbyshire towards the end of this month, including tracks by Evans The Death; The Ethical Debating Society; Fever Dream; and FLEMMINGS (who just recorded their debut session for this show, which will go out in August).
There's electronica from Hackman; Kolsch feat. Gregor Schwellenbach; and Kollektiv Turmstrasse and also a bunch of new releases from older bands this month, with Neil Young & Promise Of The Real; Skimmer; Flying Saucer Attack and The Membranes all showing the young whippersnappers how to do it.
This month's Peel's Big 45 is a 1972 release on John Peel's own Dandelion Record label, and this month's Educating Elizabeth record is a 1967 release from a Jamaican soul duo.
As well as little known acts, here's a little known fact: Evans The Death are named after the undertaker in Dylan Thomas' 1954 fictional BBC Radio drama 'Under Milk Wood'.
In Ring of Fire this month we re-discover some early South African Kwaito from the 90s and I'm falling in love with artists such as Ma Willies.
Talking about re-discovery we've got a few French post-punk electronic tracks featured too and Australia's wonderful The Cannanes amongst others.
New tracks from the Metal Postcard stable include a demo from WA's Celery, South Korean outfit Language of Shapes and last, but by no means least, Hong Kong based Little Albert.
Jonathan Richman sings the praises of the Velvets, a perfect combination in my book and as the 90s appears to be the new source from which artists are now plundering sounds I suggest they all take a listen to the mighty The Black Dog who are as important as the likes of Richard James, Luke Vibert & The Boards of Canada.
Hope you enjoy the show
