Playlist 257 - Mar 12 2013

We started this week with two sublime instrumentals. First Julia Kent, from her wonderful album Character (there’s a full review on the blog), built around solo cello; then William Tyler (pic), bracing, chiming solo guitar. Beautiful.

New tunes also from Karl Bartos, ex-Kraftwerk, Olof Arnalds, Mount Moriah and Masters in France. And some great prog pop from V.O., produced by John McEntire, which is as good a steer as you need.

Also repeats for the sublime Nancy Elizabeth and the wonderfully playful psych pop of April March & Aquaserge. And Amor de Dias, Chin of Britain.

Plus a glorious oldie from Fuxa. As ever, more on those around these pages.
