Playlist 358 - June 2 2015

There's a new album by William D Drake who used to be in Cardiacs. It's another wonderful combination of folk with medieval with avant garde and overflowing with great tunes. One of them was in the middle of this week's show, the swinging 'Lifeblood'.

New (to me) music also from Kathryn Joseph, a compelling singer from Glasgow, and Flo Morrissey an English folk artist who would remind you a lot of Alela Diane, always a good thing.

The Apartments are having one of their albums reissued by Captured Tracks. One of The Apartments Peter Walsh was briefly in The Go Betweens, in fact two of the latter's songs were about him. Sounds like a double play made in heaven.

Marcus Hamblett we've had on the show a couple of wks ago. A sublime semi-instrumental from his album would put you in mind of Ennio Morricone so we had him next to Il Maestro this week.

And Those Unfortunates who've written a cracking garage rock tune in tribute to Malcolm McDowell's smile - that's an idea made for this show if ever there was one.

More on these pages as always.
