Playlist 297 - Feb 4 2014

Music from several acts playing in Cork/Ireland soon on this week's show (hopefully they won't need a boat to get here).

Julia Kent's sublime, intense cello instrumentals; Band of Clouds with some gorgeous shoegazey dream pop; Rebecca Collins (from The Unusual History of Ether, pic) with a lovely solo acoustic release; and Crayonsmith from their Milk Teeth album of last year.

Land Lovers are issuing a split album with windings shortly. Jacques Caramac just being superb as usual. Great wonky pop (bit of ska in there) from Piper's Son.

And Dean Wareham, whose debut solo album is due out soon. The man is a legend.
