Playlist 319 - July 15 2014

Centrepiece of this week's show was some of an interview I did last month with Laurie Shaw (pic). Cork label FIFA Records have just announced they will be releasing something by Laurie in August. In the meantime, you can find plenty of his recordings on soundcloud.

Other than that, any excuse for something from The La's, a band very dear to my heart. And Stump (with the wonderfully unhinged but somehow perfectly sane at the same time 'Buffalo' - "How much is the fish? Does the fish have chips?") one of many bands to play Sir Henry's, the legendary Cork venue which is the subject of a retrospective exhibition at UCC's Boole Library which runs until September.

New music from A Winged Victory For The Sullen, from their upcoming 2nd album Atomos, orchestral ambient majesty as you'd expect. New music too from Pye Corner Audio with foreboding Krautrock grooves.

And two interesting Dublin bands. Death in the Sickroom channelling Johnny Marr to great effect. And I Heart The Monster Hero with some pleasingly fuzzy, day-glo electro pop.

More on these pages as always.
