Playlist 486 - Apr 17 2018

The final weekly show for the time being has a number of my favourite things in 2018 so far.

Caroline Says, a dream pop of devastating hush.
Jim Ghedi, beautiful chamber folk and each element holding its own.
La Luz, stalking noir pop with an unbeatable bassline.
Kacy & Clayton, great country rock with an unforgettable lead vocal.
Jack Hayter's wonderful heart on sleeve narratives.

And new Jessica Risker, folk music with gorgeous/unsettling psych tones.

Keep in touch on these pages.
