Playlist 341 - Jan 27 2015

It's just gone 50 years since The Byrds recorded their groundbreaking version of 'Mr Tambourine Man' (thanks J Comic), so time, I thought, for some Gene Clark from 1968, providing the ultimate antidote to the Summer of Love - "Los Angeles, City of Doom".

There's a great new single from Myles Manley, top drawer beat-pop and get a load of that keyboard solo which kinda upstages the rest of the song. Twerps also play brilliant off kilter guitar pop.

The new Rozi Plain single has a lovely kosmische drift to it. Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith also has a cosmic feel, very much in keeping with the title 'Glide' - she plays a Buchla Music Easel, more on that soon.

O Emperor's new single takes up where their last album Vitreous left off (tasty psych/prog pop) & Roslyn Steer with some very nice cut up dream pop - both play the Quarter Block Party in Cork next month.

And a wonderful long languid psych jam from Dublin band Princess who are out on tour across the continent with Ex Hex soon.

More on these pages.
