Playing tracks by
Owensie, Laetitia Sadier, September Girls, Big Star, Ulrich Schnauss and more.
A few new tunes this week, along with a few enduring recent obsessions. Owensie and Laetitia Sadier were paired together , both with a certain bossa nova shuffle going on. They both play in Ireland soon. There's a Big Star documentary coming out (called Nothing can hurt me) so any excuse to play Alex Chilton and friends, alongside a great fuzz pop tune from a Dublin girl band called after that Big Star song (I'm assuming anyway), September Girls. New music also from Myles Manley & the Little People (touring Ireland this week), The Sea & Cake, ex-Codeine & Come stalwart Chris Brokaw and a transcendant Balkan folk guitar instrumental from Ryan Francesconi & Mirabai Peart, new signings to Bella Union (they're part of Joanna Newsome's touring band). Plus the new free d'load single from Melt Yourself Down (pictured), which involves people from Acoustic Ladyland. It's frenetic, infectious dance music, drawing on jazz, world and club musics. blog = http://tinyurl.com/theuoh
