Playlist 436 - Feb 28 2017

Aldous Harding has been a fave of the show for a couple of years. Now she's with 4AD/Flying Nun so expect to hear a lot more from her soon, new music from her starting this week's show.

Valerie June is an American singer who manages to combine something of the exotic air of Joanna Newsom with the grit of Lucinda Williams, an alluring mix.

More from The Nightjar,a Bristol band with a great mix of haunting folk, arresting harmonies and field recordings.

John Hynes is an Irish singer with a voice you'll immediately love, shades of Father John Misty or Harry Nilsson.

Stornoway from a fascinating compilation of songs from Shakespeare's plays and times.

And some more Basil Kirchin, some wonderful early 70s English horror film music.
