Playlist 253 - Feb 12 2013

A couple of my favourite bands from the archives this week, The La’s & The Byrds. I just never get enough of that sunburst guitar sound on the latter, and as for The La’s – the best ever album disowned by its maker?

Also, the new Mmoths single (he plays Cork this weekend), new Phoenix Foundation, new Junip (love the gradual build of that), new Pantha du Prince. And some mindbending new Melt Yourself Down, which might just do what the band name says.

Also 2 great classical pieces, both on Erased Tapes. The debut of Michael Price, a film/tv soundtracker, and the ET debut of the somewhat legendary Lubomyr Melnyk, a brilliant slow unfurling over almost 10 minutes. It’s about 20 minutes into the pod, you should listen to it all.

As always, more on these pages.
