Episode 4 of Sounding Bored finds us reflecting on the latest sorry chapter in the ATP saga, the short-notice cancellation of the Drive Like Jehu weekender, with Niall contributing to the discussion from the perspective of someone who (unlike me) has had his fingers burned by the promoters' previous flakiness. There's a look back over some of the best records released so far this year, with me taking the opportunity to wax lyrical about The Besnard Lakes while Rob praises PJ Harvey's The Hope Six Demolition Project and Niall picks Teleman's Brilliant Sanity. We wrap up by offering some thoughts on post-punk godfathers Wire's new album, Nocturnal Koreans, and setting it into the context of their hugely impressive and influential 40-year career.
