Playlist 392 - Mar 8 2016

Ex Stereolab all over this week's show. Tim Gane's new band Cavern of Anti-Matter have a great debut album full of machine drones and kosmische tones. Meanwhile Laetitia Sadier sings guest on the new Giorgio Tuma album, beautiful drifting dream pop under the shadow of Morricone.

The Goon Sax are from Brisbane and make lovely off kilter guitar pop very much in the style of early Go Betweens (as it happens the band features Louis Forster, son of ex Go Between Robert).

M Ward is back with a new album, another gorgeous excavation of his roots of rock n roll influences - doo wop, country, soul et al. And his old compadres in Giant Sand are touring soon, including Cyprus Avenue in Cork on April 14th (with Jason Lytle too of Grandaddy fame).

And some baroque pop - The Zombies, Nick Garrie and The Association, a certain glorious psych edge is never far away.
