Paul and Carolyn return for another Sunday Escape run through of all the finest in new music. That means the best new releases of the week, with an eclectic mix of tracks including new singles from Twenty One Pilots and Japanese Breakfast plus albums from Du Blonde, London Grammar and Nick Waterhouse. This week also sees the reissue of a seminal avant garde 80s album from Laurie Anderson, so there just may just be a track from that too.
The (very long) list of releases for 2021’s Record Store Day was announced this week, so there’ll be a look at that. That’s in addition to a new album of the week, another Super Clever Music Mystery Quiz, and of course biscuits! Tune in on Sunday from 9am to 1pm.
As well as all the finest in new music there’ll be a report on a failed easter egg hunt, a tale of woe involving chocolate eggs, and of course a new Super Clever Music Mystery Quiz. Plus, with a bit of luck, there’ll also be seasonal biscuits! Tune in on Sunday from 9am to 1pm.

Was the decision right? What should people watch out for when they are considering different types of vaccines?
