Playlist 390 - Feb 23 2016

A couple of new albums to tell you about this week.

Jaako Eino Kalevi (thanks Albert/Plugd) is a Finnish dude with a lovely line in bedroom pop meets Scandi-soul and a bit of electro pop on the side.

Emma Pollock does great things on her new album with chamber pop and bitter memories.

Still loving the Iggy Pop project with Tarwater and Alva Noto, interpreting the poetry of Walt Whitman (you heard me).

And courtesy of Trunk Records, sumptuous library music by Armando Sciascia.
