Playlist 338 - Jan 6 2015

Happy New Year all. First off, a bit of a glitch at the start of this wk's show so apologies, we lost a few minutes of Aldous Harding, plus my intro (which is no loss). Check the full audio for that song down the page or better yet buy her awesome s/t album.

A selection of Best of 2014 tracks dominated proceedings - aswell as Aldous, we had Benjamin Schoos, Jennifer Castle, Paul Smith & Peter Brewis, Silver Apples. Check the blog (down the right hand side under posts) for a full review of 2014 in 4 parts (4th part to be added this week).

Also new music from Wildbirds & Peacedrums (a bonus track from the Rhythm sessions), Katelyn Aurelia Smith (more beautiful & minimalist analogue synths), Elephant Micah (plangent folk songs) and the great new single from Astronauts (hushed psych pop).

In this brand new year of love and death, let's face the music and dance. More on these pages.
