Playlist 345 - Feb 24 2015

Started with a bit of a soul run this week. Superior country soul boogie from Durham NC from Hiss Golden Messenger, then up the road to Richmond VA for delicate orchestrated soul pleadings from Natalie Prass. And classic Minnie Riperton from 1970, more of a cosmic soul variety.

Rozi Plain - new music, fascinating folk/kosmische drones; Colleen - new album is all about the dub/reverb, she plays Cork in May.

Some great Elliot Smith from 1997 and Jessica Pratt from 2015, channelling part him, part English folk, part who knows what but I love it.

And a great new (to me anyway) voice in the shape of Cat Palace, deep boneshaking gospel tones.
