Playlist 387 - Feb 2 2016

The Convergence Festival runs in London in March and there's another fine line up this year, including the wonderful "supergroup" of The Rajasthan Express with Israeli composer/singer Shye Ben Tzur and Jonny Greenwood. Anna von Hausswolff is also on the festival bill, hopefully they find a church organ for her to achieve maximum epic.

Closer to home, Rozi Plain is at Quarter Block Party in Cork this w'end, finding a great niche between folk and kosmische; Morning Veils from Cork, spinning great freaked folk.

Tortoise with Georgia Hubley from Yo La Tengo on sumptuous vocals; Joanna Newsom with more great baroque flourishes; The Drink making tremendous progressive math pop.

And The Apartments, making heartbreak sound so luscious and inviting.

More on these pages.

Feb 2 2016 w/ Rozi Plain, Morning Veils, Junun, Tortoise, Anna von Hausswolff, The Apartments ++ by The Underground Of Happiness on Mixcloud
