Playlist 264 - Apr 30 2013

A few great new things from Thrill Jockey this week - Peals is a new group consisting of William Cashion of Future Islands and Bruce Willen ex-Double Dagger who play delicate, drifting instrumentals; John Parish is a well-known name, but his new album is a collection of his less well-known (to me anyway) soundtrack work - it's brilliant; and grand soundscape composers Mountains, who play Cork next week.

A couple of very nice Irish female-fronted pop releases, Cat Dowling with a bluesy take, Cave Ghosts with a lovely surf-pop feel.

Television announced their reform date at the last ever ATP in November this week; brand new music from Colleen and new-ish from Alisdair Roberts.

And my new favourite band, TEEN, superb drone pop produced by Sonic Boom.
