Playlist 431 - Jan 24 2017

The centrepiece of this week's show was the interview with Rozi Plain, recorded last month when she played with her band at The Kino in Cork (great gig). You'll find about 6 minutes of that chat in the middle of this set, the full interview will be up here soon in its own right.

A couple of new obsessions.

The Nightjar, a band from Bristol taking folk music into devotional classical music territory with a hint of the ambient avant garde too. Brilliant.

Animals That Swim, a band from the 1990s who fell between Britpop and, I dunno, post punk. They are reissuing their 1994 album Workshy on One Little Indian and it has some wonderful tunes on it - rushes of guitar, and intelligent, literate lyricism.

The Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble, a wonderful swinging tune with Brazilian undertones, ahead of European tour in April. Wonderbar.

And Iggy Pop back guesting with Manchester band PINS, more spoken word - I think he should do more of that.
