Playlist 378 - Nov 17 2015

A class of an electronic 1st half to the show this week, brought on by a couple of new releases -

Noveller, back with a new album, more delicious ambient guitar washes
Phantom Horse, a Hamburg duo, keeping bleeping minimalist German kosmische alive
SlowPlaceLikeHome, lovely drifting ambient electronica from Donegal, of all places.

Around which was added -
Some classic Cluster from 1974
Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, one of the best albums of 2015 for me, beautiful kosmische tones
Groundbreaking wigged out Moog boogie from Bruce Haack 1970
Seminal psychtronica from Silver Apples 1968
Moondog making gorgeous canons a child would appreciate.

Great film music in the 2nd half from -
Mikael Tariverdiev, Russian, not heard in the West before (by many anyway), revived by Stephen Coates via Earth Recordings
Martial Solal, from A bout de souffle, jazz in the service of the Nouvelle Vague.

Plus Steve Warner, another great Earth reissue, lush piano, sumptuous vocals.

More on the blog.
