Playlist 446 - May 9 2017

Kamasi Washington has a new EP out, called Harmony and Difference. We heard roughly one movement from the lead track 'Truth', it's about 13 minutes long in all (listen to it all below). It's a wonderful freewheeling affair with choir, orchestra, constantly shifting sands of drums, guitars, xylophones, saxophone of course, and more.

Some beautiful BBC Radiophonic Workshop strangeness from Delia Derbyshire & Anthony Newley. Jane Weaver filling our lugs with great propulsions. Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble with the drifting kosmische/psych pop.

And some Appalachian a capella from House and Land, primal and ancient and quite strange in its way.
