Episode notes

Luke Branch from UK rock band Asylums submits a diary today. He reflects on a few months spent in lockdown; how it’s allowed him to slow the pace of life, and also work songwriting into his daily routine, leading to the recording of over 130 new pieces of music. Studio time aside, Luke has been embracing family time and continues to run his own record label: Cool Thing Records. He tells us about balancing the needs of the label and gearing up for the release of Asylums’ third album ‘Genetic Cabaret’. An acoustic performance of single ‘Catalogue Kids’ closes the episode.
