Playlist 294 - Jan 14 2014

More from the fine debut September Girls album this week (pic) - they're around Ireland and the UK playing live this month.

A little country rock - Mike Nesmith and on the more melancholy, orchestral end, Bob Lind.

Serge Gainsbourg's classic Histoire de Melody Nelson has just been written about in the 33 1/3 series, Jean Claude Vannier was the essential collaborator/orchestrator on that project.

New Neville Skelly album due soon, new Barry McCormack out now.

New music from Jacques Caramac and Ezra Furman, love those.

And two from 1969 - Scott Walker and Ennio Morricone. I wonder did they listen to each other?
