Playlist 242 - Nov 6 2012

Lots of orchestral influences on the show this week, it goes like that sometimes. Jon DeRosa, with the brilliant drone-and-strings of Snow coffin; the great brass fanfare of Seti The First (playing Cork and Dublin this week - here's an interview I did with Kevin from the band for WeAreNoise, where he explains the title and thinking behind Victory Motel); previously unreleased film music from Sylvain Chauveau; more film music with signature and sublime vocals from Ennio Morricone; and either side of the master, two current artists certainly influenced by him - Laetitia Sadier and Get Well Soon. There's also two lovely pieces of "modern" English folk music, from North Sea Radio Orchestra and The Singing Loins; some beautiful, fuzzy dream pop from Dublin's September Girls; Nils Frahm and Jens Lekman (both playing Cork's Half Moon Theatre soon). And B. Fleischmann (pictured), with a track from a wonderfully laconic album called I'm not ready for the grave yet. Tomorrow contains the mother of all krautrock pulses - what more could you want.
