Playlist 412 - July 26 2016

The last show before the summer recess was a round up of my favourite music of 2016 so far.

Cate Le Bon feeling the joy of wonky
Tortoise being a delicious groove beast
The Fiction Aisle making gorgeous gloomy orchestral pop
A Dyjecinski making lugubrious soulful and sexy
Iggy Pop, Tarwater & Alva Noto taking Walt Whitman downtown for some treatment
Teho Teardo & Blixa Bargeld creating the most beautiful brooding chamber atmospheres
Whyte Horses in the embrace of bouncy Franco sych pop

More on these pages and watch out also for a 2nd instalment of this mid year review, coming soon.
