Playlist 383 - Jan 5 2016

The first show of 2016 had some great new music from

Tortoise, luscious shifting grooves from their new album The catastrophist
Noveller, more epic soundscapes from one guitar, new album No dreams
Josephine Foster, characterful vocal troubador songs, new album No more lamps in the morning.

And some further fond memories from 2015 in the shape of

Daniel Knox, endearing cabaret bounce
Rozi Plain, beautiful kosmische type folk, both playing Cork's Quarter Block Party in February.

And Lee Hazlewood from 1966, taking a leaf from Morricone, with massed vocals and bending strings...marvellous.
