Music Obsessive / DJ / Reviewe Oliver Laing selects his first Golden Apples.  Here is what Oliver had to say about his selections:

‘Stepping up to the Golden Apples plate for the first time, I delved through some of my all-time favourites including psychedelic drifters (Jucy Lucy), formative electronic weirdness (Dick Hyman, Bruce Haack), folk and country tinged indie from the 90s (Silver Jews, The Olivia Tremor Control, Movietone, Palace Brothers), introspective electronica and hip hop from the Y2K crossover (BoC, Buck 65, The Beta Band), Fahey-worshipping fingerpicking by an acolyte (Glenn Jones), arcane symbolism from England’s Hidden Reverse (Current 93), hermetic refugees from the 60s (Michael Yonkers, Nico, Pearls Before Swine) and some modernist chameleon music from Sun Araw on delicious white vinyl to bid adieu. 

 Hopefully the listeners appreciated my take on the Golden Apples sound and that it was differentiated enough from my shows on Posted and The Ambient Zone, both of which could feature some of the territory that I explored on Golden Apples. I was aiming for a feelinge with my debut, somewhere on a sunny Sunday afternoon where you could lie down on your comfy couch and soak up the humanity and (mostly) good vibes. From the studio end of proceedings, I certainly enjoyed piloting RTR through two hours of a Sunday afternoon”.
