Playlist 450 - June 6 2017

A couple of great Thrill Jockey releases on the show this week, both duos.

House and Land are Sally Anne Morgan and Sarah Henson, both steeped in Appalachian folk music and here giving a haunting take on that tradition.

Golden Retriever are from Portland and consist of analog synthesist Matt Carlson and bass clarinetist Jonathan Sielaff. They make glorious slow moving ambient drones, this one appropriately titled 'Pelagic tremor'.

Matthew Bourne and the title track from his upcoming new album. Another brilliantly arresting spare piano piece with cello drones.

Also The Magnetic Fields singing a song to 1969 and namechecking Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin's '69 Année Erotique, which we also heard.

And Edward Williams with one of the great (neglected) soundtrack albums as given a life by Trunk Records - utterly otherworldly and deeply moving.
