Playlist 380 - Dec 1 2015

Just the way it fell but a bit of a 1980s theme this week. The new Creation Records box set is out on Cherry Red and I was lucky enough to get my hands on a copy (thanks Ricky). It covers 1983 and 1984, the first two years of the label, and how great it is to hear gems like The Pastels & The Loft. Cardiacs are also being reissued, from 1984, and The Go Betweens from the same year, well we don't need an excuse.

Also some winter themes -
Laura Cannell, arresting
Laura Cannell remixed by Lutine, haunting
C Duncan, fantastic misty dream pop
Jóhann Jóhannsson, slow moving grandeur
Slow Moving Clouds, stringed majesty.

And Mikael Tariverdiev, wonderful Russian film music from the 1960s.
