Playlist 416 - Sept 27 2016

Two bands from down under who burst through in the 1980s to start the show. The Moles have a new album out, it's great. From The Chills we heard from their 1986 album on Flying Nun, Kaleidoscope world, their album last year was a brilliant and thoroughly authentic update on the 1980s sound.

The singular sound of Xylouris White who play Cork in October as part of the Jazz Festival (my kind of jazz). Syrinx, the kosmische sound of the Toronto early 70s underground, a beautiful thing. Nathan Bowles, making banjo swing and swoon.

And Barry McCormack, the ex Jubilee Allstars man has a new album out, a rollicking folk rock set with a scathing eye on his home city of Dublin. Like The Fall, always the same, always different.
