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 relatively quiet week for new music this week, but that hasn’t stopped Paul digging out the finest in brand new records to play on this week’s Sunday Escape, with tracks from The Avalanches, Purity Ring, Sparks and The Strokes, plus a new album from Lanterns On The Lake. This week’s album of the week is the third album from Algiers, a lovely mix of soul and rock.
Soul has inspired the rest of the show too, as Paul will be playing some new and classic soul track amongst all the new stuff, and there’ll also be a tribute to DJ and producer Andrew Weatherall, who sadly passed away this week. Paul will also be taking a look at the latest reissue of Simon and Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.
On top of all that there’s all the usual nonsense too, including but not limited to biscuits and a track from David Byrne and Fatboy Slim’s 2010 concept album about Imelda Marcos which needless to say slipped under the radar... Tune in from 9.30 to 1pm this Sunday!
It’s a music heavy show on the Sunday Escape this week, as Paul goes through new tracks from Foster The People, M83, Oh Wonder, Sofi Tukker and more, with new albums from John Mayer, Bat For Lashes and an eagerly awaited album from Mahalia. One of them may well be album of the week. There’ll also be a batch of tracks from brooding new wave bands as Paul celebrates the release of a session album from Echo & the Bunnymen.
That’s not all of course. Paul’s been travelling so there’s bound to be some exotic biscuits. There’ll also be a tribute to LaShawn Daniels, the award-winning songwriter who worked with legends such as Destiny’s Child. He sadly passed away this week at the age of 41. Then, naturally, there’s whatever Paul’s been listening to all week plus all the usual nonsense! Tune in from 9.30am to 1pm!
