Listen To A Radio Show Inspired By Adam Curtis

Drowned in Sound has dedicated its latest Soho Radio broadcast to Adam Curtis’ new BBC documentary, HyperNormalisation.

There’s nothing like a little bit of heel-clicking hype for a documentary which purportedly wishes to explore consumer society’s homogenization in the face of monopolized media channels and finance capital, right? *coughs*

Last Sunday, Adam Curtis offered up his newest documentary, HyperNormalisation, a three-hour investigation into the reality constructed by our shared capitalist delusion. In honor of the cult documentary maker’s newest offering, Drowned in Sound has selected some tunes “tenuously related to the subject matter.” You can listen to it below. Scroll down for the tracklist.
