Playlist 445 - May 2 2017

Some Flying Nun news this week. Dunedin band Look Blue Go Purple reissue 3 x 80s EPs through the legendary NZ label. It's juicy jangly and swoonsome psych pop.

Howe Gelb is back on tour, bringing Lonna Kelley and Naim Amor for company. Expect sumptuous lounge tones with to die for smoky vocals and from Naim a French jazz meets Tucson swing.

Also getting the reissue treatment is Bert Jansch on Earth Recordings. We took the title track from his wonderful final studio album The black swan (2006).

C Duncan is on tour around now. Transcendental vocal magic.

And Whyte Horses making genius thrilling psych pop.
