Playlist 258 - Mar 19 2013

More from the great new William Tyler album this week – he plays Ireland in May – and paired with another beautiful instrumental, along more ambient lines, from show favourite Slow Place Like Home.

Belfast’s Girls Names also have a fine album out, we had some of their moody New Wave stylings. Also K-X-P, soon to visit Ireland as well, with their new version of kraut-disco; John Grant’s searching self-analysis; The Vincent(s)’ debut single; the beautiful chamber pop of Liam Singer; the sweeping synth pop of Monocle; new singles also from Elephant, Eleanor Friedberger and Woman’s Hour.

And an archive treasure from the wonderful Trunk Records, an album of songs sung by actor Bernard Cribbins (pic), from which we heard the Lerner & Lowe classic from My Fair Lady ‘I’ve grown accustomed to her face’, not so much crooned as caressed lovingly.

Mar 19 2013 show w/ William Tyler, KXP, Little Annie&Baby Dee, The Vincent(s),John Grant, Girls Name by Theundergroundofhappiness on Mixcloud
