Hey kids, do you like numbers? Turns out there’s a fair number (arf) of amazing records that are overtly or tangentially related to numbers and so this, the 22nd instalment of the Threadwork podcast pulls together a fair few (snigger) of them here. This is the first of a two parter (part 2 drops in a fortnight) and contains simply incredible music from the likes of Teebs, Pepe Bradock, The Avalanches, Terron and loads more besides.
Tracklisting w/ links to purchase, if I can find them (these are directly related to the artists where possible but not always). Also, I take no responsibility for the links. Just trying to help…
