Playlist 260 - Apr 2 2013

The new single from Yo La Tengo started the show this week, followed by something else beautiful from Fuxa, a tribute to the late Mary Hansen, ex of Stereolab. A pulse into space that never ends.

More from Irishman Biggles Flys Again, some lovely vocal group stylings, and O Emperor’s stirring psych pop motorik.

Also more from William Tyler and his touring mate Hiss Golden Messenger, both playing Ireland in May.

Karl Hyde used to be in Underworld, solo single from him; new single from Junip; bouncy synth pop from the wonderfully named Ra Ra Riot and Shout Out Louds

And lovely chamber pop from the upcoming Liam Singer album.
