Playlist 476 - Jan 30 2018

It’s been a little while since we had a dance set on the show. We had a good mini set in the middle this week.

Charlotte Gainsbourg hooking up with SebastiAn to wonderful French disco effect.
De Lux with the great sunbaked LA disco full of nagging synth lines.
And SlowPlaceLikeHome with some lovely ambient electronica from the Atlantic north west (Donegal).

Also another beautiful cut from the new Spindle Ensemble album. Light as air.
The Sea & Cake giving vent to wonderful breezy jazz pop.
Jon Brion from the Lady Bird OST making gorgeous quixotic music for pictures involving woodwind.

And Django Django making music to make people who don’t know how to dance dance.
