I had a hankering for some Gene Clark (happens quite often) so we had the nailed-on classic that is ‘Echoes’ to start the show this week, from his first solo album (with The Gosdin Brothers) after leaving The Byrds. A brilliant, kind of fluttering arrangement.
We had K-X-P back – kraut disco, they’re calling it – and the very spiky, English post-punk Savages.
Two beautiful European ambient pieces, Pieter Nooten from his remarkable double album Haven, and a new single from Jumpel, featuring memorable vocals by Chloe March.
More from Little Annie & Baby Dee, with the latter on vocals unusually but superbly; the new instalment in the Collision/Detection series by Sone Institute, a particularly filthy piece of disco, 80’s gore movie-style; and Circus Devils feat. the voice of Robert Pollard, gorgeous plaintiff psych pop
New singles from Daughter and Olof Arnalds.
And Ra Ra Riot with the very very catchy falsetto of ‘Beta love’.
The Underground of Happiness
uplifting pop music of every creed
