Nialler9 Podcast: Computer Love – celebrating the music of Kraftwerk

Niall has moved house during the lockdown so we as we missed last week’s podcast, we have an extra-long episode for you this week. There was too much chat to be had on episode 89.

Conversation includes a look at some of Kraftwerk’s best songs in the wake of the news of the passing of the German electronic pioneer’s cofounder Florian Schneider.

Plus, many reasons to be cheerful, the new Fontaines D.C song reviewed, summer bangers from Doja Cat & Nicki Minaj / Megan Thee Stallion & Beyoncé plus an album review of Happyness’ third album Floater.
