Playlist 363 - July 7 2015

New music this week from The Doomed Bird of Providence, an English-based folk ensemble who play the songs of Mark Kluzek, an Australian who has been researching his native country's early colonial history for some years and translating it compellingly into song. The new You brought the knife EP traces the life of one Maria Murray, a former slave and convict who forged a new life down under, amid rugged strings and brilliant no nonsense colloquial vocals.

Qluster (yes with a Q) is Hans Joachim Roedelius with Onnen Bock and Armin Metz all on piano making gorgeous meditative music which still retains an ambient undercurrent.

New/old guitar instrumental from William Tyler, his first EP is reissued on Merge. Laetitia Sadier tours the UK this month, anyone there should check out her sublime cosmic soul from the last album. Virginia Wing are at Liverpool Psych Fest in September, another great live band from what I've heard.

The Jean Paul Sartre Experience, classic Flying Nun. And Paperface, swooning orchestral pop with loads of heart.

More on these pages as ever.
