Playlist 331 - Nov 4 2014

I had the huge pleasure of seeing Future Islands play live in Dublin last weekend - they finished their show with the fantastic 'Tin man', I've started mine with it. Sleaford Mods too, touring Ireland next month, and putting some vicious vim and bounce back into protest songs.

The Go Betweens sounding sunny and carefree from 1979. Fellow Aussies Twerps sounding similarly endearing.

Another ghostly, late-night folk creation from Kemper Norton and Chloe March with glorious dream pop, perhaps with a debt to Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Mid-section of the show, three crooners of the highest order; Liam Hayes (Plush), back with a new album in January, Rumer with a voice like velvet and Harry Nilsson making desire and longing sound absolutely gut-wrenching.

Plus Merchandise, bringing a wonderful white soul vocal to slinky rock guitar songs.

More on these pages as always.
