Playlist 272 - June 25 2013

We lead off with Low and Colleen this week, two artists coming to Cork later this year. 'Just make it stop' is the most glorious, soulful song of the year, while the whole of the Colleen album, The weighing of the heart, is like a treasure trove of found sounds magically coalescing into poetic musical works. There's a review of the album on the blog.

More also from The Last Sound and Eat Lights Become Lights, both keeping the motorik pulse alive and well in 2013.

There was Oliver Cole sounding just like a 'Little wolf' (wah-ooo), some great scattergun pop from Kiran Leonard, sun-baked folk from Plankton Wat and very endearing blue-eyed soul from Hero & Leander.

And Halves, from their sublime new album Boa Howl. We'll have an interview with them on the show next week.
