Playlist 357 - May 26 2015

Two of my favourite albums over the last few months were in this week's show. Death & Vanilla play a wonderfully delicate brand of psych pop, haunted and gorgeous equally. And Jon DeRosa whose new album is a dream of crooning dream pop with unsettling undertones, not a million miles from the tone confusion you find with music in David Lynch films. Brilliant.

Stump reformed in secret to play a show in Cork last weekend, any excuse to dip into their back catalogue.

Three outstanding female innovators in pop music at the heart of the show - Circuit des Yeux, Holly Herndon & Bjork.

Majestic if broken/industrial orchestral offerings from Beck & Roll The Dice.

And soulful, cosmic, motorik beauties from The Great Balloon Race & Vinyl Williams.
