Playlist 388 - Feb 9 2016

Another clutch of people playing these parts son and a raft of new music.

Richard Hawley, bringing his A-grade folk/soul/whatever to Cork Opera House this month along with Marry Waterson & David A Jaycock, sparkling folk songs Tindersticks, back with more white soul orchestrations of the highest order Shearwater, epic protest music.

Also Emma Pollock with lovely twisting chamber pop Nadia Reid, sweet fuzzy alt country Iggy Pop, reciting Walt Whitman over Tarwater & Alva Noto, gripping Cardinal, a cult classic w strings and trumpet fanfare.

And Il Maestro Ennio Morricone bringing his 100+ piece group to Dublin this week.

More on these pages as always.
