Playlist 477 - Feb 6 2018

A couple of themes in this week’s show.


The wonderful bruised croon of Ken Griffin of August Wells, coming back again to Ireland to play in April. The epitome of soul.

The pure heart-piercing tones of Brona McVittie, from her beguiling new album.

Eden Ahbez, a lost treasure from 1960, imagining an idyllic existence amid hushed and spellbinding exotica.

Jack Hayter, a gritty maybe eccentric folk voice, contemplating the outpourings and emissions of a city.

And Orquesta Akokán, a Cuban group on Daptone. Irresistible frenetic Latin rhythms.
