Playlist 354 - May 5 2015

The new Titus Andronicus tune is a tour de force of controlled fury, shout singing brought to new levels of insight and intelligence. Essential.

John Cale with a great memory from 1974, chaos nagging at the edges of sweet melody. And Courtney Barnett giving a great litany of modern day lameness.

The beautiful mariachi touch of Jon DeRosa; the gorgeous pedal steel sweep of Tandem Felix; the lush soul of Laetitia Sadier and the soulful psych of Vinyl Williams.

The compelling psych drift of Todd Tobias and Death & Vanilla making glorious psych pop.
