Playlist 279 - Sept 10 2013

Still working through the summer backlog this week.

New albums from two English artists - Jack Cheshire, some nice Nick Drake-ish jazz folk tones, and from Satellites, something slightly more epic.

V.O. back with a new single, what a great band, and I've also been liking Mick Harvey's latest album a lot recently.

Three acts playing the Liverpool Psych Fest at the end of the month, showing just how much variety you can fit under that banner - The Lucid Dream (psych rock), Plankton Wat (sun-baked folk) and Eat Lights Become Lights (krautrock).

Two from the Hidden Shoal label, lovely dream pop from Kramies, and something more of a chamber persuasion from Liam Singer, brilliant.

Sophia Knapp sounding like a woozy Stevie Nicks and some tropical sounds from Delorean, you can't beat it.
