It’s a mixture of independent music legends and newcomers on this week’s Crimes Against Pop as Paul and Carolyn play new tracks from Guided By Voices, Beachy Head (a collaboration between members of Slowdive and The Flaming Lips) and a duet by Bobby Gillespie and Jehnny Beth. There’s also a massive helping of new post punk, a new single from Working Men’s Club and Lacuna Common complain about the weather. All that and more including a terrible French pronunciation of a great new record from L’Imperatrice.

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.
