Playlist 466 - Oct 31 2017

The Go! Team on the show again this week - better get used to that, it's one of the best pieces of music heard anywhere in some time.

Moondog and Bob Lind to begin. An odd pairing you might say. But I wonder if Jack Nietzsche (whose genius you can hear in the production of 'Counting') was aware of the Viking of 6th Avenue? Something in that glorious swirling arrangement sounds to me like it's speaking to the marvellous rounds and overlapping rhythms and time signatures of Moondog.

Drahla have a nice line in Sonic Youth esque tight jagged post punk.

Lean Year and The Saxophones, two of a great current crop of American artists plying the edges of dream pop to intriguig effect.

And speaking of that, one of the classics from Julee Cruise with the handiwork of Angelo Badalamenti and David Lynch not far away.
