Nico Callaghan's new album Black Against An Orange Line is released today on Daisart under Nico's new moniker Haji K. Nico (aka Nico Niquo) describes the album as "home music", and tonight on SleepTalker he talks to Bec about time shifting over long, slow days spent creating sounds from home.

In the second half of the show, Nico and Bec discuss some of the complexities of defining 'ambient' music, and existential issues with modern ambient music in the age of late capitalism and sponsored content. For more, check out Nico's print and audio-book Snakes In The Grass.
