Playlist 302 - Mar 11 2014

I finally got around to clubbing Teenage Fanclub and The Scud Mountain Boys together with The New Mendicants, which features Norman Blake and Joe Pernice from those great 1990s bands.

Some great new electro singles from Future Islands and Eyedress, plus a memory from Metronomy who play tonight in Dublin.

Patterns and Katie Kim both play Cork in the next month or so.

Golden Retriever's sublime minimalism, Glenn Gould's transcendant Bach piano.

And Benjamin Schoos with Laetitia Sadier (pic) sounding like they're ushering in springtime with a blast of breezy sunshine pop.
