Playlist 263 - Apr 23 2013

It seemed only right to kick off with some Kraut-disco as K-X-P are in town this week - my kind of disco. And another track from the upcoming Altered Hours EP, which comes out next week, the alluring psych pop of 'Smoke in your eyes'.

In fact, the range of Irish music being made continues to impress. Also on this week's show we had the smoky blues of Cat Dowling, the Hawaiian lullaby of Peter Delaney, the 8-bit stylings of Cove, the vocal swoon of Sans Chateaux and the enigmatic New Wave of Girls Names. Yes.

The Phoenix Foundation from NZ, a universal pulse from Fuxa, and anthemic synth pop from Here Is Your Temple.

Also new music from Melt Yourself Down, another storming global funk off, Camera Obscura (great to hear them back with us) and gorgeous dream pop from Deerhunter (pictured), who curate ATP at the end of June.
