Playlist 275 - July 16 2013

The last freestyle show before the summer recess (the next two weeks will be special or compilation formats - a Round-up of the year so far next week and a Love Songs set the week after).

Folk was hot this week - Plankton Wat (sun-baked variety), Peter Delaney (middle of the night, ukulele style), Oliver Cole doing some great woo hoos, even Grumbling Fur (pictured), adding a psych/electronic twist to something very English sounding.

Screaming Maldini I can't get enough of lately, there's a touch of a High Llamas influence in there, good to see the baton passing to another generation.

The new Liam Singer album is also brilliant, an intriguing chamber pop, we had a track from that. Nils Frahm changing tack a little, doing something like techno without the beats.

And for Belle & Sebastian fans, Hero & Leander - a brilliantly conceived love song told through blue eyed soul.

More on these pages as usual.
