Paul and Carolyn (AKA the Pop Fugitives) are plotting to make their Escape every Sunday morning between 9.30 and 1.
Join them on the Sunday Escape to hear the best in new music, including three tracks from their album of the week, along with a carefully curated selection of classics, plus interviews with guests from all over the city and beyond. There’s also occasional live music in the studio and all the details of upcoming music events in Hong Kong.
On top of all that is “Biscuit Review”, now a Sunday Escape institution, a feature perfectly designed 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 and Carolyn digging up the finest new releases for this week’s Sunday Escape with the release of the second albums from Fontaine’s D.C and Creeper plus singles from mxmtoon, Haiku Hands and Angel Olsen. This week also saw the deluxe reissue of Bobby Gentry’s album The Delta Sweete, so there’ll be a track from that plus a look at Prince’s forthcoming ludicrously expensive box set and some more classic top records from the Pop Fugitives’ record collections.
Sadly the music world has lost some more legends this week, so there’ll be tributes to singer Denise Johnson and rapper Mailk B. There is also of course another Extended Play, plus the latest Super Clever Music Mystery Quiz and the second and possibly final in Paul’s ill-thought out feature “Knit Hits”.
On top of that there’ll also be all the usual nonsense plus biscuits. After all, where would the world be without biscuits? Hungry, that’s where. Tune in on Sunday from 9.30 to 1pm!.
On this week’s Sunday Escape, Paul celebrates the release of an astonishing number of eagerly awaited albums, in particular The Return from rapper Sampa The Great, which is album of the week, as well as new albums from Metronomy, Alex Cameron, Charli XCX, The Lumineers, Pixies, (Sandy) Alex G and more! There’s also all the best other newly released songs from the week, with highlights from Wrabel, Green Day, The Knocks, FKA Twigs, Bruno Major and The Heavy. If there’s enough time, Paul will play some of the older stuff that’s been hitting the turntable at Pop Fugitive HQ.
There’s also some sad news however, as songwriter and artist Daniel Johnston passed away this week. Paul will play a few tracks from him and those influenced by him, and look at the incredible influence he had on independent music.
On top of all that there’s a look at a seven-inch box set from Slade, another cover version from Bryan Ferry that nobody wanted, and of course biscuits (which actually look decent this week). Tune in from 9.30am to 1pm!
