Playlist 471 - Dec 5 2017

There’s a bunch of Best of 2017 cuts in this week’s show (the 2nd last of the year), all of which you’ll be hearing more about when I do my end of year round ups later in the month.

Laetitia Sadier Source Ensemble, brilliant Brazilian inflected kosmische
Loma, magnificent slowcore meaderings
Matthew Bourne, exquisite use of silence piano cello and a room
The Bonk, jazz having its knees scuffed by prog pop
Laura Cannell, bracing pre modern invocations.

And Bonny Doon, one of the most poignant lyrics of the year wrapped in Silver Jews clothes.
