Playlist 438 - Mar 14 2017

A bunch of great British music on the show this week, in two main camps.

In the folk department
The Nightjar, stirring haunted atmospherics
The Bevis Frond, enduring drones with sitar
Alasdair Roberts & Gordon Ferries, from the wonderful Shakespeare songs Food of Love project, getting courtly.

And more of a post punk buzz
Shaking Chains, compelling spoken word delivery
Animals That Swim, fierce guitar tune with brilliant narrative drive
Warm Digits feat. Field Music on vocals, banging electro.

And Francois & the Atlas Mountains, slippery woozy psych pop from France.
