Playlist 393 - Mar 15 2016

Serge Gainsbourg died 25 years ago this month. Always room at UOH Towers to pay tribute to that legend.

Whyte Horses (pic) are a new band on me, making some lovely psych pop, sung in French here which is always good. This is the Kit can also do French, brilliantly, and they play Cork in April.

More Giorgio Tuma, loving that album, sitting somewhere between Stereolab/High Llamas and Ennio Morricone. And Britta Phillips (of Luna, Dean & Britta), debut album out next month.

Check Bert Jansch goodies out for Record Store Day on Earth Records. And a nice little electronic run with Iggy Pop taking Walt Whitman on a journey with Tarwater & Alva Noto and gorgeous ambient sounds from Qluster.

And Orchestra of Spheres, the best bonkers music to shake your ass to.
