Playlist 316 - June 24 2014

A couple of things working on a vaguely Brazilian theme this week. Sergio Mendes & crew from 1966 with some sublime bossa. Then Sun Kil Moon from this year treating his poetic soul songs to some sunny classical guitars and saxophone. Sabina brought it north a bit with a lovely mariachi vibe. SlowPlaceLikeHome is another sound of summer, but closer to Berlin via Donegal.

We had the husband and wife split 7" from Rachael Dadd and Ichi, love both of those. (She encourages him to make a sentence, he responds with gibberish and mosquito noises!...or that's my interpretation anyway...)

A much darker mid-section with the brooding orchestra of Roll The Dice, the stalking bass pulse of Automat with vocals by Lydia Lunch & the tortured sax meditation of Polar Bear.

Chris Stroffolino is a fascinating sounding character I'll come back to, among other things he's a fan of The Kinks, as am I, and sure who isn't?

More on these pages.
