Monochrome and desaturated Music...

I’ll be live on the Drowned in Sound radio show from 4-6pm this bank holiday Monday.

As a salute to birthday boys Robert Smith and Iggy Pop, today’s show will have a desaturated and somewhat monochrome tinge to everything - what would that description suggest to you? (Requests will definitely be considered)

Listen online or with the Soho Radio app. Or listen later with Mixcloud. Or don’t listen at all, it’s up to you.

I wonder if a spherical song could ever be monochrome or if the two are mutually exclusive? :thinking:
