Kalou Revisited: Cassettes, Songs and The Sculpture Garden

This week, following on from the Weavelengths that focussed on cassette tape as a medium: on 31 January 2020, William was joined by Sam Robinson (also known as ‘Kalou’), who releases tapes of upbeat songcraft composed with the medium of cassette firmly in mind. Dan Wilson, who has a cameo on the Kalou album, also joins the discussion. As Kalou, Sam Robinson works with a post-modern pot-pourri of techniques, producing an eclectic range of musical moods; plunderphonic lucky dips; the catharsis/neurosis inherent in ‘pop’. The show features Kalou’s album, ‘The Sculpture Garden’, which is still available at https://www.kalou.co.uk/
