Playlist 422 - Nov 8 2016

A couple of great new records featured this week.

Hilma Nikolaisen might be best known as the bass player in Norwegian shoegazers Sereena Maneesh. Her first solo record is a brilliant combination of dreamy jangle pop and psychedelic grooves, adorned with outstanding bass playing, maybe not surprisingly.

Lambchop are back with a shift in focus. Kurt Wagner has been on the autotune but it tends to work a dream with his gentle croon and on a bed of electronic clicks and coos.

Also new sounds from Goat, Cory Hanson, Virginia Wing.

And a treasure from Bruce Haack, inner space moog masterpiece.
