Playlist 333 - Nov 18 2014

We kicked off with psych pop this week in the shape of the new Liam Hayes (Plush) single, that's great, there's an album to follow called Slurrup. And 'Getting better', an outstanding Beatles classic and my favourite song from Sgt Pepper.

A couple of recent obsessions. Dan Michaelson, that deep cracking voice, the musical chemistry, gorgeous. And Jessica Pratt, that voice lilting over a swinging acoustic. Inspired.

Mid show, three jangly guitar pop gems from A Lazarus Soul, The Chills & Theatre Royal, it does the soul good.

Then a bit of a switch for the close. Lubomyr Melnyk with handsome piano melodies, Markus Mehr with a compellingly beautiful combination of found sounds, industrial rumbles and elegiac piano.

Something new from Silver Apples, bleeping bouncing, and something old and thrilling from Bruce Haack.

More on the blog.
