Playlist 404 - May 31 2016

Galway singer Brigid Mae Power has hooked up with Peter Broderick on production for her new album, a lovely spacious set full of captivating vocals. It's out on Tompkins Square.

Robert Rotifer ploughs a line I like a lot - sombre measured songwriting with a political undercurrent.

Britta Phillips' debut solo album is out, it's full of sweet arrangements and dream pop gorgeousness.

And a trio of sumptuous orchestrations from the late 60s/early 70s - Lee Hazlewood invoking Morricone, Frank Sinatra invoking Jimmy Webb, The Beach Boys making vocal harmony orgasm.
