Playlist 313 - June 3 2014

A few new things of note this week. English garage rocker Laurie Shaw has another new album out, another intriguing foot stomper full of great tunes. From it, we had 'Black wolf blues'.

The Clientele debut album Suburban light is being reissued on Merge, we took a great slice of jangle pop from that.

And not so new but an album I've just been getting into recently by Sun Kil Moon. That's Mark Kozelek, ex Red House Painters. 'Ben's my friend' is a rollercoaster of nostalgic memoir from middle life, surfing on a wave of bossa nova. It's wonderful.

Also St Vincent (fresh from her storming Primavera turn at the w'end), Roll the Dice (whose compelling new album is now out), The Elwins (one of the pop songs of the year) & Red Snapper (writhing synth funk).

Plus a classic from The Zombies from 1968. Yes, always room for that.

More on these pages.
