Playlist 425 - Nov 29 2016

Weyes Blood (pic) is Natalie Mering and you need to hear her. Dreamy psych pop that is stately, somewhat serene, and with a singing voice that will have you in the palm of its hand from the first note. Do it.

Also great new Howe Gelb, from his Future Standards album, which is piano trio jazz tunes and with to die for vocals also by Lonna Kelley.

Virginia Wing have some very interesting spooked electronic shapes on their new album, haunted you might say.

Cory Hanson's solo album is another beaut, subtly freaky folk songs with lush throbbing strings.

And Rothko have made something that's absolutely gripping, like some kind of cross between Mark E Smith and Ken Loach. Give it a go.
