Welcome to The 405 Podcast: Each week we plan to immerse your ears with intoxicating and exciting new music from bands and artists we've recently discovered. Hosted by Arielle Free and Stephen Kelly expect witticisms, extreme intelligence and unfounded music knowledge... ahem.

In this week's podcast Arielle gets all 'weegie' when catching up with Scottish band Holy Esque. (Subtitles may be needed.) Meanwhile Steve mans the desk playing all the very best in new music wonders. In the playlist you'll hear the stonking new track from Queens of the Stone Age, as well as offerings from Frankie and the Heart strings, !!! and Night Beds.
