Playlist 274 - July 9 2013

Eat Lights Become Lights (pictured) were back on the show with the title track of an album I'm growing to love more every week. Again, I paired them with The Last Sound, from another brilliant piece of work, and both albums drawing on different strands of Krautrock, among other things.

O Emperor and Grave Lanterns share a stage together in Cork this weekend, two Cork-based bands flying the flag for a kind of renegade strain of pop music.

New singles from Dutch Uncles (playing Longitude Festival in Dublin), The New Mendicants (touring the UK), Polica and Kathryn Williams.

More haunting music from Nancy Elizabeth's new album (review on the blog now), Angkorwat from The Outer Church compilation on Front & Follow, and something ineffably beautiful from a couple of years back from A Winged Victory for the Sullen who announced some UK shows this week.
