"Each record has a different nature to it, so that informs the way you move and act and express and that just takes a while. Once you stop worrying about it…it's the only spiritual thing I know, when 5 or 6 people make music and then I act in a spasmodic way."
Baxter Dury

Emily is flying solo in a makeshift studio this week (hashtag working from home). The unprecedented change we are all experiencing only makes us more determined to continue to support and keep in touch with our wonderful music community.

Tune in for reviews of new albums from Ultraista, Tony Allen and Hugh Masekela, Matthew Tavares and Leland Whitty, Lapsley, and The Wants.

Our special guest this week is the one and only Baxter Dury, a firm favourite among Rough Trade staff and customers alike, he chats to Emily about his new album The Night Chancers, conflicting relationships with social media and refrigerated television green rooms.
