Welcome to Irregular Crates – a music blog and podcast series. From time to time, we’ll post up news of our musical discoveries as well as our own mixes and shows where we may also feature special guests from time to time.
Irregular Crates was born as an extension of the Audio Gourmet blog run by Harry Towell which was set up back in 2007, as a portal for experimental music. Harry set up Irregular Crates in 2013 and due to an influx of submissions, further writers have been drafted in to keep things moving. Irregular Crates is now a four man team with James Armstrong (Slow Clinic), Edward Threthowan (Net/NE Trethowan) and Luca Nasciuti also providing posts.
There is no regularity to either the music or the frequency of posts and we keep things short and sweet with our writing. The whole aim is to share our musical discoveries in the hope that we can support the experimental music scene.
