Playlist 459 - Sept 12 2017

A predominance of people playing live shows this week.

Robert Forster is in Europe promoting his wonderful memoir Grant & I, giving public interviews and playing songs from his own and The Go Betweens legendary back catalogues.

Amiina and Autre Monde are just two of the many bands playing the Sounds from a Safe Harbour Festival in Cork this week.

We also had haunting folk music from The Doomed Bird of Providence and The Nightjar.

And sumptuous dream pop from The Saxophones, music to dream and yearn to.
