Playlist 310 - May 13 2014

Sao Paolo to Tokyo, Cork to Perth. There's a new OOIOO album out soon, it's influenced by the sound of Javanese Gamelan music. I decided to build a mini-set around a track from it, with a classic Tropicalia cut from Os Mutantes, the current single from The Altered Hours and a new remix from perth (the band from Perth). The theme of this mini-set? I dunno...pop music infiltrated by psych pop and global folk musics?

A new single from Rachael Dadd which is great and Joan Shelley, who tours Ireland this month - what a wonderful pure voice she has.

New music from Orcas, a lovely ethereal sound a little bit reminiscient of Talk Talk; we also had the latter, from the superb Spirit of Eden album.

Then, more searching folk music from Arch Garrison, The Monks Kitchen doing Ray Charles, Trans Am doing JAMC. And Joe Meek shooting into outer space.
