Playlist 448 - May 23 2017

We didn't have Ariana Grande on the show this week but we did have a great contemporary Manchester artist. Jane Weaver's new album is a brilliant mix of psych pop and synth driven kosmische and fittingly there's a heartfelt and poignant tone to it.

Moondog is always good music to lift the spirit, sitting somewhere between classical and folk but not neatly in either camp.

Some folk cuts. Joan Shelley with the most delicate and sublime of folk voices, James Elkington with a lovely baroque folk twist of fingerpicked guitar with cello, Harry Taussig & Max Ochs with a light playful touch of American Priitive.

Lee Hazlewood from his Swedish sojourn, always great to hear.

And from the English Weather compilation, a brilliant folk-exotica track from The Roger Webb Sound.
