The Peppermint Lounge in session on The BCB Sessions!

Hi folks,

We had a treaty treat on Wednesday’s show – a session from The Peppermint Lounge. They’re based in Leeds and their music’s really hard to describe but reminds me of The Beta Band & Hot Chip – not bad eh!

Also Phil Collins’ vox made an appearance – not something I’d usually big up / do but it’s a top remix from a local outfit.
