NO ENCORE #172 | The Big Short

With Daithí off doing further Daithí things, Dave lifts a controversial ban to welcome ace journalist and Lil Nas X stan Eva Short to NO ENCORE HQ.

Craig is also on board, because Craig is forever. On the agenda; the new Hot Chip album, statue remorse, Dave’s quite astounding link game and Lana Del Rey’s summer party…

ACT ONE: Your general catch-up situation finds Craig experiencing summertime sadness and Dave breaking his festival hiatus (yes, again) for about eight hours.

ACT TWO: News, and plenty of it. Limp Bizkit’s special status, Luke Kelly’s defacement, P!nk’s brand new fan and the state of Glastonbury.

ACT THREE: Songs of the Week featuring Lil Nas X, Friendly Fires and a team-up between Mark Ronson and Angel Olsen.

ACT FOUR: Hot Chip have made another Hot Chip album, but is it any good?

EXIT MUSIC: Maijia Sofia | ‘Edie Sedgwick’
