Playlist 464 - Oct 17 2017

A couple of main themes this week.

Seminal psych folk or country figures in Gene Clark and Bob Lind. Chris Gantry is getting a reissue on Drag City, Nashville but not as you probably dreamed. And Michael Nau and Damien Jurado, two contemporary US songwriters bringing great psychedelic undercurrents to modern folk music.

The second section is all about the soundtracks. A couple of brilliant pieces from the year just gone, Nicholas Britell and Mica Levi respectively, from two excellent films also, Moonlight and Jackie. And some jazz inflections from Mikael Tariverdiev (classical Russian style) and Martial Solal (frantic French Nouvelle Vague style).

Plus The Bonk, lovely prog pop shapes weaving dreamily around jazz and other things.
