Playlist 396 - Apr 5 2016

Doo Wop? That'd be M Ward, mining the essentials of rock n roll again beautifully.

Ray Cathode, that's the late George Martin with friends from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop (what a fascinating meeting of the mainstream and the experimental that was), space lounge let's call it.

New Aldous Harding, oh be still my heart, sounds like a slight departure for her, vocally especially, but still sounds great.

Teho Teardo & Blixa Bargeld, making brooding compelling chamber sounds, wonderful.

And it finishes with a class of a father and son act, The Goon Sax followed by The Go Betweens.
