Ep. 31 | Young Fathers | Heavy Heavy – This Is Not Happening – An Album Of The Month Podcast
In Part 1 we speak in depth about Rozi Plain’s new album ‘Prize’. It’s a curious, warming gem of an album that really needs to be talked about. In Part 2 we play ‘Spin it or bin it?’, the theme this month is Protest Music.
Part 1 | Album of the Month | Rozi Plain | Prize
David’s choice this month is an artist that he has a long relationship with, Rozi Plain. Rozi was new to the rest of us so we were all playing catch up. I can’t remember an album that needs to be talked about (in real life, with human beings) as Prize. You will hear me processing what I actually feel about the album, live, while we discuss it. I think I probably come out of the discussion with a slightly different conclusion to the one that I had at the start. All good albums get better with more attention but this one absolutely demands it.
Please, please, please go and give it a listen. I think most people will find something that they love about this album.

Part 2 | Spin It or Bin It | Protest Music
We all pick a track based on a theme, present the track and ask the simple question, Spin it or Bin it? The theme this month is a simple one ‘Protest Music’. There are no limitations or rules this month other than, as always, we try to bring new music or a new context to each other.
- Guy chose – ‘Take the Power Back’ by Rage Against the Machine
- David Chose – ‘Ship Building’ by Elvis Costello & the Attractions
- Joey chose – ‘Reagan’ by Killer Mike
- Nolan chose – ‘Four Women’ by Nina Simone
A 16 track Protest Music playlist (4 tracks each) can be found – Here
Guy brings Young Fathers ‘Heavy Heavy’ for Album of the Month and we play ‘Spin It or Bin It?’ with Post-Genre tracks.

Really enjoyed (eventually) catching up on this one. Nice to hear you all chat about the magical Rozi and TITK, they really are something special. I’ve enjoyed many gigs/festivals by them both – really is music to sooth your soul.
Thanks for listening, Mark, it’s much appreciated. We were really tickled that Rozi listened and enjoyed herself too!
