Playlist 305 - Apr 1 2014

The centrepiece of this week's show was some clips from the interview with Julia Kent. I spoke to her when she played in Cork last month at Triskel Arts Centre, she's a really interesting character. There are two clips - by the way apologies for the background noise, you might need headphones to appreciate properly. The full interview (14 mins or so) will be here to stream soon.

New music also from Diane Cluck (she plays Belfast, Cork & Dublin this w'end) - beautiful, eerie, spectral folk music - Sabina and her world of wonders, Benjamin Schoos with Laetitia Sadier swinging brilliantly.

And the brilliant synth-inflected folk tones of Arch Garrison , another in a long line of great work from Craig Fortnam.

More on these pages.
