Episode 21: Anatomy

So here we are then, the first instalment of Threadwork in 2019 and for this episode I’ve pulled together a bunch of amazing music that all have some relationship to the theme of ‘anatomy’. I’m really pleased with how this one has turned out and there’s a good breadth of music on show so hopefully you’ll get something out of it. Also, I’m not sure whether anyone’s ever mixed Elbow into Fudge Fingas before so it’s probably worth the admission fee for that alone.
