Playlist 434 - Feb 14 2017

A couple of love songs (of sorts) to kick off the Valentine's Day show.

The sublime version of 'My funny valentine' by Kathryn WIlliams & Anthony Kerr, a smouldering take with a distinct air of desolation in the spaces between the lines.

Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble showing 'Undying love for humanity', which is tough to do but music as great as this makes it so convincing.

Warm Digits are a duo from Newcastle who make furious beat driven animals and here have Field Music in on guest vocals to wonderful effect.

Goldfrapp being filthy and there's not much better in life than Goldfrapp being filthy.

Urban Farm Hand make a lovely folk/kosmische hybrid.

And Foxygen being bonkers and beautiful and soulful.
