Playing tracks by
The Velvet Underground, Wooden Shjips, La Femme, Delorean, Bouts and more.
The death of Lou Reed loomed large over this week's show. As plenty of other people have remarked over the weekend, there's an enduring freshness and vitality about the first VU album especially. It really has aged well., as the man himself did.
New music from Wooden Shjips, La Femme & Delorean; old soundtrack music from Ennio Morricone and Witchfinder General, the latter gets a re-release next month.
More from Angele David-Guillou (pic), beautiful, moving piano music; and littlebow, brilliant, playful, keyboard and flute exotica.
The National are on tour right now, as is the film made on tour with them Mistaken For Strangers, which plays in Cork soon. So do NZ folk duo French For Rabbits, and Bouts, launching their debut album.
Plus Band of Clouds are just finalising a fundit campaign, they could do with your patronage.
