Paul Haswell (AKA the Pop Fugitive) is plotting to make his Escape every Sunday morning between 9.30 and 1.
Join him every Sunday on the Sunday Escape to hear the best in music, with plenty of new records including tracks from his album of the week, as well as interviews with guests from all over the city and beyond. There’s also occasional live music in the studio plus all the details of upcoming music events in Hong Kong.
On top of all that is “Biscuit Review”, now a Sunday Escape institution, to complement the most eclectic mix of music on Radio 3.
It’s a show full of the best in new music on this week’s Sunday Escape, as Paul goes through some of the finest releases. There are brand new records from Matt Maltese, FKA Twigs, Beck, Graham Coxon, Frank Ocean, and Alicia Keys, plus, since it’s just Paul in the studio this week, there’s a chance to go through all the new music that you may have missed. There’ll also be another album of the week, which won’t be a Christmas album despite the startling number of Christmas releases out at the beginning of November(!).
This week also sees the release of Death Stranding, the eagerly awaited new video game from Hideo Kojima which stars Norman Reedus, Léa Seydoux and Mads Mikkelsen, as well as film directors Guillermo Tel Toro and Nicolas Winding Refn. Paul’s been playing it, and will give his verdict.
On top of that there’s music from the vast number of vinyl reissues, all the other random stuff Paul’s been listening to through the week, and of course in-depth biscuit reporting! Tune in from 9.30 to 1pm.
This week the Sunday Escape celebrates the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, which took place on 20 and 21 July 1969. To commemorate, Paul will be playing plenty of music both from the period and with a (sometimes tenuous) link to the historic event. On top of all that, there will of course be all of the best in new music, with new tracks from The Flaming Lips, Four Tet, Alec Benjamin, Rhye, Maven Grace and The Streets, among many others.
Paul will also be playing three songs from this week’s album of the week, and commemorating the 20th anniversary of the breakthrough album from Sigur Ros, “Ágætis Byrjun”, which is enjoying a special vinyl release to celebrate.
As if that wasn’t enough there’ll also be all the usual nonsense including the latest unfortunate musical collaboration and gastronomy corner. Tune in from 9.30 to 1pm!
