Playlist 281 - Sept 24 2013

A rake of great tunes this week, plenty of new music again.

Let's start by mentioning Crystal Stilts (pictured), one of my favourite bands, whose 3rd album Nature Noir is just out. We had the cracking 'Future folklore' from it, a kind of Velvets-Bo Diddley mash-up, and there will be plenty more to come on the show over coming weeks.

Also, Julia Holter paired with Leslie Caron, two Gigi references there, both based on the famous Colette novel; Bill Callahan getting funky in his old age, with the meditative Yusef Lateef, two flute interludes; King Khan appeared in the Moon Duo video for 'Sleepwalker', the lunar ones play Liverpool Psych Fest and in Dublin next weekend; two Alexander Tucker out there pop plays in Grumbling Fur & Imbogodom.

MGMT play Cork next month, their great missing Philly Soul link from the 2nd album; some lovely folk/reggae tones from Me & My Friends; Paper Dollhouse from the extensive new Outer Church comp on Front & Follow.

And 'Troublemaker', the new single from the sublime current album by Camera Obscura. The joy.

More on these pages as always.
