Playlist 433 - Feb 7 2017

Peter Walsh appeared twice in this week's show. First in his own right as The Apartments, from his most recent wonderful album No song, no spell, no madrigal. Then guesting on the final album from Piano Magic, what a voice, lived in, soulful, stoic but full of sadness and regret.

The Saxophones are a new band on me and I like what I hear. There's a hint of 50s rock n roll balladry about this song but in a more hushed atmosphere which is entrancing.

Mick Harvey is back with another wonderful album of Serge Gainsbourg interpretations, lots of tremendous duets, many in German which is superb to hear.

New music from Canada's The Dears, sounding as fresh as ever.

UK out there jazz from The Comet Is Coming & Dinosaur, both playing in Ireland soon.

And some Jacques Tati soundtrack music from Frank Barcellini. Marvellous.
