Playlist 314 - June 10 2014

Another cut off the new Laurie Shaw album this week, along with a long-distance drone from Brisbane's Blank Realm.

My favourite new song this week is from Dublin's Death in the Sickroom, a fantastic slice of jangle pop with teeth. More too from The Clientele reissue on Merge and Stars in Battledress with folk/classical gone wrong/right.

Recent favourites Sabina, Tennis & Wussy. Plus some very dub-centred electronica from Automat, with a vocal turn from Genesis P-Orridge.

More on these pages.
