The BBC continue their investigation into New Weird Britain... this week arriving at the radical rural

BBC Radio 4 continues its investigation into New Weird Britain, with a new episode delving into the radical rural. TQ Editor John Doran speaks to Elizabeth Bernholz (aka Gazelle Twin), Richard Skelton, Hawthonn, Folklore Tapes, Farmer Glitch and Saxon Roach and asks, what do we mean when we talk about the English eerie?

The show airs at 4pm today and you can tune in here live or listen to all three episodes on catch-up, iPlayer, Sounds etc. later on.

Elsewhere on the BBC's extensive digital platform, Doran has attempted to answer (in a very bijou word count) the thorny question: Why is music getting weirder?
