Playing tracks by
Tex Ritter & His Texans, The Three Suns, Astrocolour, Lee Hazlewood, Patrick Freeman and more.
A few wonky Christmas numbers at the top of the show this week. Tex Ritter giving Santa a bit of western swing, The Three Suns bringing some excellent cheese and Astrocolour taking a more laid back, Air-ish approach to some classics of the seasons.
Then a bunch of stuff that will be featuring in my Best of 2015 -
The Drink, glorious twisting guitar shapes
Field Music, horns on top of superior prog pop
The Chills, heartlifting jangle pop
Lee Hazlewood, a reissue but an absolute treasue of this year
Robert Forster, elegaic, poetic, playful, wonderful
And Anderson (pic), an Irish singer songwriter of substance and class. I like the way his jacket fits.
