Playlist 421 - Nov 1 2016

An extra hour this week so time to fit in a few indulgences like

12 minutes (well most of) of glorious orchestral sweep from The Fiction Aisle
New music from Jess Williamson, great desert blues with a voice on the edge of cracking
Fantastic shifting cosmic soul from Ex Reyes
Lovely country boogie from Hiss Golden Messenger.

Also time for some more wonderful Russian film music from Mikael Tariverdiev
Irresistible beats from Yama Warashi
Some treasures from The Byrds & Big Star.

And a Grant McLennan interlude featuring a great solo cut from 1997 and two of his genius Go Betweens catalogue.
