Playlist 348 - Mar 24 2015

Something of a psych run to kick off this wk starting with the great glitch-ridden new song from the upcoming 3rd Tame Impala album. From the upcoming 2nd album by The Great Balloon Race is the equally sublime 'Why meddle?'.

New music also from Twerps, a highly likeable ramshackle waltz, Kramies with a lovely line in somnolent dream pop, Noveller with another epic guitar instrumental.

40th anniversary of Kraftwerk's Radioactivity, new album from Smile Down Upon Us which is wonderful charming left field pop, The Monochrome Set with another brand of alt pop full of character.

And O Emperor, making soft pop safe for the masses.

Mar 24 2015 w/ Tame Impala,Sam Prekop,Noveller,Kraftwerk,Twerps,O Emperor,Natalie Prass++ by The Underground Of Happiness on Mixcloud
