Playlist 481 - Mar 6 2018

A bit of a baroque kick on the show this week.

Lake Ruth is a Brooklyn 3-piece with wonderful flourishing melodies and shimmering arrangements around treble-y basslines and analogue synths.

Jean-Claude Vannier – famous collaborator with Serge Gainsbourg – patented a brand of baroque pop with those up front basslines once again. This is one of his vault treasures as issued by the Finders Keepers label some years back.

Charlotte Gainsbourg has a new album full of great melancholy arpeggios. A kind of downbeat baroque pop.

Also some exotica.

From the past Eden Ahbez. A dream of a life of freedom that shimmers.

From the present The Saxophones. A dream of pop music with flutes.
