"This week's ENT comes from LP Giobbi. It's the first release on her new project for Ninja Tune's Counter Records. There is an album on the way. She has collaborated on the whole thing alongside DJ Tennis and Joseph Ashworth. I've been listening to this for months, walking about all over the place, and I have been really looking forward to playing it for you."
