Playlist 324 - Sept 16 2014

Something of a sombre/sedate/low-key tone to this week's show, it goes like that sometimes.

Gospel meditation from Peter Broderick from a couple years back, he plays Cork soon. So does Sean Nicholas Savage, making gorgeous bedroom soul.

Wildbirds & Peacedrums exploring the overlap between rhythm and desire, thrillingly.

Sumptuous jazz pop from Bill Wells and (mostly Japanese) friends; spare piano from Soley; Bell Gardens with lovely drifting drones; A Winged Victory For The Sullen, orchestral grandeur; Little Tornados, quixotic dream pop.

Then two Second Language releases to finish. Silver Servants (pictured below the cover of their s/t album), a kind of English underground pop supergroup, with glorious dreamy psych pop. And Mark Fry (who is also part of Silver Servants) channelling Bert Jansch to great effect.

More on these pages as always.
