    Good evening London this is Dublin calling … here are the votes of the Derv jury.
    Mr Jake Houlsby – you have an incredible voice! Vassals – you wonk turns me on.
    But, Track of the Week, goes to Penny Police and her wonderful song, about the Mediterranean Migrant crisis, which is filled with genuine humanity, honesty and empathy! My hat goes off to you. Derv x

    :) to ENNIO THE LITTLE BROTHER – Breeze Hill … there IS space for story-telling, supported by well matching arrangement of sound-carpets, sound-highlighted spots, turns … even though it takes time to listen, and it needs to have the lyrics to read while listening esp. for non-native speakers. And tracks on FOTN come from the www and are heard worldwide, so there’s a lot of non-native speakers.

    I AM ANNI comes from Helsinki, Finnland – and presented the lyrics from the spot … maybe that the awarness that the language used is not familiar and some words not understood hinder reception is given if you yourself are not british by nature ;)

    And mmmh … The LP this week offers story-telling AND Jazz … and such a bunch of variing genres.

  14. That was an eclectic listen. Would have found space for some quality jazz and comedy folk in my top 5 if possible but 5 is 5.

  32. For me this is easily our strongest Listening Post of 2017 so far – so many great tracks and artists! Since we can only pick five:
    BILLIONAIRE – Reasons To Be Fearful
    LITTLECOMETS – Common Things
    NY-LON – Suite Part 3: Maiden Flight
    ORCHID COLLECTIVE – Waited On The Sun
    TV ME – Magdapio Falls

    But I also very much liked the extraordinary MILES MILO PASCALL and BISCH NADAR, not to mention HORSEFLIES, VASSALS, GLASS PEAKS, BRAND NEW MOON and the ever bonkers CHRIS AND THE CELERIAC… I just hope all these fine artists have managed to upload these same tracks to BBC Introducing as well!
