Playlist 365 - July 21 2015

Some whistling to start off the show this week. Esquivel pushed the boundaries of stereo sound (and orchestral arrangements) in the 50s and 60s. And C Duncan is doing similar with pop instruments and classical techniques. Both have knockout whistling interludes.

New music from Best Boy Grip of Derry, always welcome, one of the best songwriters and arrangers on this island.

J Fernandez, lovely Beach Boyish arrangement. Ezra Furman with that great manic energy but also a searing intellect. The Phoenix Foundation taking off into epic prog territory, a great trip.

And The Chap are back and chapping away very chappishly as always.
