Playing tracks by
Jane Weaver, The Death of Pop, Petula Clark, Chloe March, Brickwork Lizards and more.
This show was 5th in the global soundtrack chart.
A couple of surf references in this week’s show which is nice on the cusp of winter/spring.
La Luz are a 4-piece from Seattle (or I’ve also seen LA) and their tune ‘Cicada’ is a brilliantly propulsive piece of surf noir, that’s what they’re calling it.
Sven Libaek soundtracked a surf documentary in 1968. Here we had the wonderful theme from that OST which sounds a little like The Byrds gone lounge. (Why did they never says you.)
Also Nightports with Matthew Bourne making beautiful piano (re)shapes.
Tune Yards going full soul diva on the excellent ‘Heart attack’.
Brickwork Lizards carving a space for Egyptian fusion in Oxford.
And a little Petula Clark to show everyone how to make perfect pop music.
