Playlist 486 - Apr 17 2018

The final weekly show for the time being has a number of my favourite things in 2018 so far.

Caroline Says, a dream pop of devastating hush.
Jim Ghedi, beautiful chamber folk and each element holding its own.
La Luz, stalking noir pop with an unbeatable bassline.
Kacy & Clayton, great country rock with an unforgettable lead vocal.
Jack Hayter's wonderful heart on sleeve narratives.

And new Jessica Risker, folk music with gorgeous/unsettling psych tones.

Keep in touch on these pages.

New John Parish album coming soon. The first song from it is a remembrance of the late Mark Linkous feat. PJ Harvey, both of whom worked with Linkous. And some wonderful slowcore Americana from the man himself. Gone too soon, 8 years already.

Bedouine plays Dublin in May, a sublime slice of soulful folk from her debut album.

Both Fixity and The Bonk playing live shows this month. Sample their brilliantly atmospheric mongrel jazz.

And Lee Hazlewood giving expression to a mature years world view with grace and genius string arrangements.

Playlist 484 - Apr 3 2018

New Jess Williamson (pictured) on the show this week. A bit of a departure based on her previous stuff I've heard. She apparently moved from Texas to California. Sounds like a good move. Blue sky psych pop shall we say.

Caroline Says (Caroline Sallee) moved to Austin Texas from Alabama and recorded her second album late at night in her apartment with gorgeous hushed vocals.

Landless are a 4-piece a capella Irish group. Here's a spellbinding lament from their debut album.

Jim Ghedi - great folk instrumentals undercut with classical strings and a lovely trumpet part.

And The Double Six of Paris. Giving Ray Charles an upbeat jazz treatment.
