This week’s PBS Feature Album is Funeral For Justice, the new album by Mdou Moctar.

Recorded at the close of two years spent touring the globe following the release of 2019 breakout Afrique Victime, Funeral For Justice captures the Nigerien quartet in ferocious form. The music is louder, faster, and more wild. The guitar solos are feedback-scorched and the lyrics are passionately political. Nothing is held back or toned down.

Cover to cover telling her story of recovery, persistence, and survival, the album is one complete body of work, drawing from experiences in her own life and watching the world around her.

Unpredictable and chaotic, Party Pest channel post-punk irreverence, blending discordant melodies, jangly guitar hooks, wild primal drumbeats, big bold bass grooves and synthesised sonic mayhem into a celebration of life as they know it.

Anything can and does happen when Party Pest play, so strap in for a wild ride and hear the band on Radio City for a special Studio 5 Live performance.

This week’s PBS Feature Album is Marlinchen in the Snow, the fourth full-length album by Charm of Finches.

Recorded in the depths of winter in the woods of Nova Scotia with acclaimed Canadian producer Daniel Ledwell (Jenn Grant, The Once, Oh Pep!) after five months of touring across Australia, UK and Europe, Marlinchen in the Snow is inspired by the frozen beauty of the landscape in which it was created. The album reflects on Mabel and Ivy’s transient life on the road, belonging and the idea of home, along with the fragility of relationships.
