Playlist 238 - Oct 9 2012

We opened the show with some great bossa nova from Dubliner Owensie, a brilliantly catchy tune from his new album Citizens. We also had more brass-ornamented skewed pop from David Byrne & St Vincent; two Galway bands playing live together this week, Yawning Chasm and Christian Bookshop; Japanese legends Shonen Knife (pictured, as usual, great costumes), also on tour at the moment, the wonderful croon of Jon DeRosa, a track from a re-issued album by the incomparable North Sea Radio Orchestra, Limerick's windings, the orchestral flourishes of Jherek Bischoff, the choral beauty of Ombre. And a superb dub rework of Roll the Dice by Berliner Pole. Calling dub workers? Now there's a marching slogan...

The Underground of Happiness
uplifting pop music of every creed
