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.
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!
