FFFoxy Podcast #105 with Chris Berry of Soft Abuse / Fruits & Flowers

On this installment of the FFFoxy Podcast show, our good friend Chris Berry of the Soft Abuse and Fruits & Flowers record labels joined me in the KMSU studios for the seventh year in a row. This annual get-together is something I always look forward to, as Chris typically rolls in with a box of top-shelf musical surprises, both new and old, and this year he delivered once again. You’ll hear everything from shambolic pop songs to Hungarian Christmas tunes to trance-inducing avant-jazz and much more. On top of that, we previewed several tracks from forthcoming Soft Abuse and Fruits & Flowers releases that are in the works for the months ahead. Hope you enjoy this new episode. Check out the links below to find out more information about each of the releases played or feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or comments. As always, thanks for looking and listening.
