Playing tracks by
Dott, Crystal Stilts, SlowPlaceLikeHome, Connan Mockasin, Fuxa feat Britta Phillips and more.
A few themes on this week's show, kicking off with the garage pop two-punch of Dott and Crystal Stilts. Mmm.
SlowPlaceLikeHome plays Cork tomorrow and Keith Mannion of SPLH I know is partial to a bit of Connan Mockasin, who is doing the filthiest impression of Prince since Prince was Prince.
Then husband and wife, kind of. The wonderful Britta Phillips guests on a track on the latest Fuxa album, brilliantly refashioning the Mike Nesmith classic 'Different drum'. And she's married to Dean Wareham who has a new EP out, the first under his own name, solo like. Britta plays bass on it and (I think) sings too. It's great.
Then a kind of mid-show, broadly folk theme. The Doomed Bird of Providence chart early Australian immigrant experience through song - compelling and not for the faint of heart. littlebow (lowercase) ply a beguiling brand of folk exotica. And Dan Haywood is a songwriter and ornithologist and combines the two by recording in the countryside. Bonkers and brilliant.
