Playlist 266 - May 14 2013

A few new releases this week. Some great spooky, fairy tale sounds from Colleen from her new album, her first in several years and god to hear her back on form. And a wonderful fuzz drone instrumental with violin from the new Date Palms release The Dusted Sessions.

Also on Thrill Jockey, more from the John Parish soundtrack album Screenplay, that's great stuff, and the new single from Nancy Elizabeth on Leaf, folk music taken beautifully to the dancefloor.

The always reliable power pop of Telekinesis, the edgy but melodic electro pop of Monocle.

Loads of good Irish music around, like Cat Dowling, Peter Delaney, Last Days of 1984, The Altered Hours, more on the blog as always (reminder of The Altered Hours Interview as well from last week, over there on the right in the Interviews section...)
