Playlist 485 - Apr 10 2018

New John Parish album coming soon. The first song from it is a remembrance of the late Mark Linkous feat. PJ Harvey, both of whom worked with Linkous. And some wonderful slowcore Americana from the man himself. Gone too soon, 8 years already.

Bedouine plays Dublin in May, a sublime slice of soulful folk from her debut album.

Both Fixity and The Bonk playing live shows this month. Sample their brilliantly atmospheric mongrel jazz.

And Lee Hazlewood giving expression to a mature years world view with grace and genius string arrangements.
