Playlist 296 - Jan 28 2014

Quite a bit of new music on the show again this week, including a real stormer from Dublin's Girl Band (below and currently touring), joining the dots thrillingly between Fugazi and The Pixies.

New single from Future Islands too, great to hear them back. And Girls Names are on the Choice Award list.

John Grant is certainly one cool motherfucker (whatever about being the greatest), he plays Ireland in March. As does Damien Jurado, his new album is wonderful.

Who else? More Ezra Furman, love that; strong Irish music from Patrick Freeman (lovely country feel) and Silverbacks (Yo La Tengo vibe).

Plus Pontiak kicking out some serious jams.
