This week we’ll look at emotional isolation. It seems the more we reach out the less we feel. It might be the continuing reliance on the intrawebs or fragmentation of society but increasingly many of us are alone and not by choice. Next time you are at a restaurant and see a couple glowing with the bluish tint of their separate mobile phones or simply sitting together but not talking, you'll understand what I mean. Demonstrating the ways we've becoming isolated on this episode of Idyllic Music are White Blush, Bioscape, Niyaz, Soulacybin, Winterstrand and Kate Martin. I'm Jim Nye
