Great new music from independent labels and artists all around the world
||SnC 429 – Finale||A retrospective show this week to celebrate the past (almost) nine years of weekly Suffolk’n’Cool shows. There’s a mixture of old and relatively new music from artists that have a significance for me always, initially for their music and also ,||1 10 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 428 – Dubby||We’ve gone a bit dubby this week with a couple of artists from the excellent A Quiet Bump net label in Sicily. Boo Boo Davis brings us back to our blues roots and then gives it all a bit of a twist and to start ...||24 9 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 427 – Days of Summer||As the dog days of summer splutter into the first mists of autumn we’re taking a moderately chilled approach to this week’s show with tracks from artists in Nashville, Halifax, New York and Lisbon, Portugal. Kick back,||17 9 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 426 – Wildly West||We’ve got a live recording from the high desert of New Mexico, Ghostly sounds from Seattle, Afrobeat from Brooklyn and to start, songs collected by a biologist in the Carpathian mountains of Central and Eastern Europe over a hundred years ago.

||SnC 425 – Crooned and stirred||Variety again I’m afraid, with tracks from a bunch of Milwaukee collaborators, a film music studio not quite on the Pont d’Avignon, the legend that is Plastikman and, to start, a multi-instrumentalist obsessive in Portland, Oregon.||3 9 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 424 – Mystery time||An interesting collection of artists again this week a few of which take us off into almost uncharted and mysterious territories. Every once in a while it’s good to hit your ears with something a bit different eh?||27 8 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 423 – Smiley time||A somewhat exotic show this week with a slight variation of approach. We’ve got five fascinating independent artists from Amsterdam (with their take on the music of Curaçao), Montreal (singing in Spanish), California but with a song in Serbian and,||20 8 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 422 – A meeting place||A show of considerable contrast this week with more music than is probably good for you. Like Benyoro (pic) it’s a bit of a meeting place. An Sera – Benyoro (NYC, USA) The band is, quite literally, a meeting place. Its name,||13 8 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 421 – Get your sh*t together||We’re going somewhat pop this week. Not exclusively and no, not your standard bland radio pop but some really rather interesting examples of how in the hands of real musical craft people every genre of music has the potential to surprise and delight.||6 8 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 420 – Gianna Lauren||Its a while since we devoted the entire show to just one artist. It’s something that I really like us to do because it gives a chance to dig a bit deeper into the music and background of some hugely talented independent artists – the ...||30 7 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 419 – Wired for sound||We’re well and truly wired for sound this week with news of a fascinating project based in South Africa which travels out to remote communities to record and promote local music. It’s all very appropriate as the temperature keeps on rising here in S||23 7 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 418 – Bouncing back||A selection of tracks from Europe this week as we delve through offerings from France, Luxembourg and the UK including a couple of artists that were at The Great Escape.

||SnC 417 – Flashback||This week we step back five years to a spring day in May 2009 when SnC was just 166 episodes old and we were enjoying the likes of Los Campesinos. Playing for Change was very new and Codger had hair beyond his shoulders. Why? Well, whatever’s ...||4 6 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 416 – Escaped||We’ve a bit of a departure from the normal this week. We’re firmly in very windy Brighton for The Great Escape with a modest selection of fine tracks from artists who were there along with a feature on The Wet Secrets who played some excellent ...||21 5 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 415 – Up to your knees||A fairly summery feel this week with a couple of tracks from the German Emerald and Doreen label. They specialise in music at the more interesting end of the scale. Foof Records supply differently interesting music and we’ve a couple more tracks from||7 5 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 414 – Eastbound||We have some rather special and innovative blues from Boo Boo Davies with BLu ACiD – yes, Jan Mittendorp is involved so you know it’s going to be good.

||SnC 413 – Getting brassy||We’ve a somewhat brassy theme to this week’s selection of new music from around the world with horn-infested tracks from The Wet Secrets, Kotorino and Sonic Ahmed.

||SnC 411 – Speakeasy Vintage||An enforced variation from the usual show (whatever that may be) this week, caused by my being laid up for the past few days with an infection in one of my lungs. I don’t think I’ve ever coughed so much but you should check my ...||2 4 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
||SnC 410 – Spectrum||A selection of some considerable contrast this week with a couple of quietly beautiful and affecting tracks matched up with some solidly crafted pop from California and Singapore and even a blast of Australian electronic dance music.||26 3 2014||Free||View in iTunes|
The title says it all! Suffolk 'n' Cool!
I can't believe only one person (until now!) has reviewed this Podcast on iTunes! Having said that, the rest of the listeners haven't been left with too much else to say since Ross' review says it all. But, to recap, if you like great, interesting and varied music presented in an informative, friendly and engaging style then Suffolk 'n' Cool is the show for you. And Peter is such a nice guy in person too :-) Graham Holland - It's A Frog's Life Acoustic Podcast
A weekly gem that every iPod will want to own!
Peter has been podcasting since January 2006 and it's obvious from the first minute of the show that he loves doing it. The show's a great mixture of all the best genres: reggae, singer-songwriter, blues, funk, indie, rock. You name it, and Peter will play it. Not only do you get great music, but you also get a great personality and great insight thrown in. Let's face it, what else would you expect from a man that worked at Island Records and toured with Genesis, Free, Lindisfarne and Bob Marley and The Wailers. A must for all music lovers!
A Fantastic Music Mix
To think Peter does this for pleasure and has done for the last 4 years. A great mix of music to suit all tastes I look forward to my weekly dose of sNc on my way to work Thursday mornings.
