Animal Collective's Geologist talks to Field Day founder Tom Baker in the latest episode of the festival's radio show

Every day that rolls past from henceforth is one step away from the drear, blear February Monday we find ourselves in, and one increment closer to the balmy climes of May, the month in which Field Day takes over Victoria Park for one momentous Saturday (May 25 to be precise). And what better way to cement this slowly-crescendoing temporal elapse than with an episode of said festival's very own radio show - have a listen below:

This episode features an interview with Geologist of headliners Animal Collective, as well as tracks from some of the appearing acts, including Bat For Lashes, Daphni and Four Tet, plus John Coltrane and Milt Jackson's 'Stairway To The Stars', a choice request from Mulatu Astatke, who'll be appearing on the Quietus' very own Village Mentality stage, and a former interviewee on the show - have a listen here.
