Playlist 417 - Oct 4 2016

Some notable shows coming up, reflecting much of the music on this week's show.

Stars of the Lid are back in Ireland for the first time in 10 years, they play Triskel Christchurch in Cork at the weekend in what should be an epic gig.

Trashcan Sinatras have announced a November gig at The Workman's Club in Dublin, it's also about 10 years for them if I'm not mistaken. One of my favourite bands, and their new album is another set of lush, swooning pop songs.

windings are in Coughlan's in Cork this month on the back of a new album, A Dyjecinski is on a UK tour this month, Alien Ensemble are also across the continent in November.

And there's Cool Ghouls, they were in Europe recently, but is there a better cosmic Americana (read psych pop) sound around at the moment than this?
