Playlist 282 - Oct 1 2013

The centrepiece of this week's show was a segment of the interview with Liam Singer. We also had two tracks from his wonderful album Arc Iris (review on the blog here and full interview audio to follow soon).

I saw Cat Dowling play last weekend, she was superb, and her new single 'Somebody else' is just out. Plus another strong Irish female release in the shape of the fourth album from Ann Scott.

Cool new music from Connan Mockasin, bit of a Prince feeling off that; new album this month from Dublin's Crayonsmith; some great kraut-surf vibes from La Femme; Cork's Elastic Sleep play the HWCH13 Festival in Dublin this week (so does Cat Dowling actually); The Unusual History of Ether, keeping a place for jazz in pop music, like that a lot.

And another Hidden Shoal gem, the new single from (The) Caseworker.

More as always on these pages.
