Playing tracks by
Lost Idol, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Alela Diane & Ryan Francesconi, Bert Jansch, Julia Holter and more.
This show was 46th in the global folk chart.
The last show of the year and a bit of a mixum gatherum. Some musical highlights of 2015 sprinkled throughout, a few pieces of winter music and a few new releases.
The winter music was Lost Idol, a wonderful mix of medieval and 21st century. And Jóhann Jóhannsson, the s'track to his own film End of summer about a trip to the Arctic, a suitably glacial and haunting piece.
Highlights of 2015 included JR Green rollicking away fabulously, Low simmering magnificently, Alela Diane & Ryan Francesconi meditating compellingly, Deerhunter psyching beautifully, Julia Holter well she's just brilliantly daft as a brush.
New music from TEEN, new album coming from them in the spring, and Tess Parks, uncompromising psych pop.
Two more great cuts from the Creation Records Box Set out on Cherry Red, The Loft & Primal Scream from 1985, great.
More on the Best of 2015 coming on the blog over the next few weeks. The next show is Jan 5th.
Happy Holidays to all.
