Playlist 437 - Mar 7 2017

A raft of instrumental music this week for some reason, just plenty of it about I suppose, and plenty of great stuff.

The Comet Is Coming have UK dates in March and May (and beyond)
Gavin Prior, new album has some great ambient sounds in it
Noveller, new album, more epic guitar soundscapes
Mind Over Mimrrors, intriguing kosmische-meets-roots sound
Mica Levi, wonderful wrongfooting soundtrack from the film Jackie.

We also had Cormac O Caoimh whose new album plies more of that gorgeous Prefab Sprout territory.
Diagrams, beautiful folk music with propulsive beats.

And Basil Kirchin exploring the limits of library music, brilliantly.
