Playlist 287 - Nov 5 2013

Plenty of wonky pop on the show this week, of different hues. Just the way it goes sometimes.

Julia Holter, wonky in a floaty, enigmatic, showtunes-gone-fringe kind of way; Beaty Heart, more of a psych pop flavour; Piper's Son, very interesting offbeat guitar pop.

Bill Callahan was back, taking country music into dub territory; Georges Vert is far out in dub space already; Major Lazer featuring Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig on guest vocals is an insinuating, smouldering slow reggae jam.

Room for classic pop too. The Would Be's, top class indie guitar pop; Best Boy Grip, sharp/tender piano-lead power pop; and Dott (pictured), taking the legacy of 60's vocal girl groups and re-shaping it sublimely for 2013. They play Cork this week, their very fine debut album is out next month.

More on these pages as always.
