CRIMES AGAINST POP – 028

The Coral kick off this week’s foray into new discoveries from Paul and Carolyn as Crimes Against Pop, in which Serengeti and Jenny Lewis collaborate with an unusual motor vehicle themed tune, Billy Nomates releases a footwear based new single and there’s heartfelt Americana from Valley Maker. There’s some chat about long album titles thanks to Rats On Rafts and an unexpected and perhaps unwanted discussion about carpets thanks to a new track from carpetgarden.

Crimes Against Pop – aka Paul Haswell and Carolyn Wright – have been DJing together since 2003, when they launched their eponymous monthly residency at the Buffalo Bar in London.

As well as hosting their own regular sold out nights in London, Haswell and Wright appeared regularly at Rob Da Bank's Bestival festival on the Isle of Wight, before moving to Hong Kong in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Since then, Crimes Against Pop have brought their eclectic mix of pop, hip-hop, r’n'b and electronica to major events such as Clockenflap and the Rugby Sevens, while earning a reputation for packing the dancefloor at bars and clubs across the city. They’re also known for getting Sunday mornings off to the perfect start with their Pop Fugitives radio show on RTHK3.
