This week, we'll look at metaphors, similes and allegories. These Figures of Rhetoric color our languages and influence the way we describe music. Adding relish and piquancy to this addition of Idyllic music are Iambic, Karmacoda, Plastercluster, TCK and Rafael Aragòn. I'm Jim Nye.
Guy Andrews records in London as Iambic creating a new and evocative sound mixing the ambience of the Cocteau Twins with the subtle electronic hooks of Boards of Canada. His 'under these stars, we’ll sleep again' release is a revelation. Here is 'Touch the Sky'
