This was a “regular” episode of the Catastrophe, in that we mainly focused on music, and decided to skip the topical content this week. Malderor does have a sort of odd commonality amongst his musical selections, as most of them feature breathy male vocalists in the Mark Hollis/Steve Winwood/John Martyn vein, but that’s not really a “theme” exactly. Whatever, there is good music this week, so check it out!
