Playlist 255 - Feb 26 2013

New music from two fine Cork bands this week. The Vincent(s)’ (pictured) debut single is out Friday – a little bit of Link Wray meets Nirvana Unplugged – and The Altered Hours release their Sweet Jelly Roll EP in April. The title track is a slow burn psych rock affair with a hint of MBV about it. Looking forward to hearing more from both bands.

Garage rock was out in force this week actually. We also had a blast of Ty Segall, as well as The 13th Floor Elevators from the 1st Psychedelic Wave.

We also had The (wonderful) National, playing Cork in June; Darren Hayman on the English Civil War; new singles from Ariel Pink, Polly Scattergood, Brendan Benson & Mikal Cronin; the latest in the Collision/Detection series featuring Isnaj Dui. More beautiful chamber folk from Amor de Dias and some great classic soundtrack from Leonard Bernstein from the film West Side Story.
