Playlist 311 - May 20 2014

Some new Parquet Courts this week - it's great as you'd expect - paired with Laurie Shaw who namechecks the band in his glorious glam jam 'Handbag'.

The Last Sound play live at the end of the month in Dublin, any excuse to play them on the show. And a new EP from William Tyler, more wonderful winding guitar instrumentals. Plus Wussy, digging the alt country side of themselves.

Beguiling global folk from Ichi (mosquitoes and all), Laetitia Sadier just being her own self and don't you love it, Sabina sounding like a cross between Nico and Joan Jett.

And Stars in Battledress (pic) urging us to 'Buy one now' - it's so delightfully wonky that something tells me Argos won't be snapping it up as their theme tune anytime soon.

More on these pages as always.
