Playing tracks by
Me & My Friends, Camera Obscura, Flipron, MGMT, Julia Holter and more.
A rack of great tunes this week.
Let's start by mentioning Crystal Stilts (pic), one of my favourite bands, whose 3rd album Nature Noir is just out. We had the cracking Future Folklore from it, and plenty more to come on the show over coming weeks.
Also, Julia Holter paired with Leslie Caron, two Gigi references; Bill Callahan getting funky, with meditative Yusef Lateef, two flute interludes; King Khan appeared in the Moon Duo video for 'Sleepwalker', the lunar ones play Liverpool Psych Fest and in Dublin next weekend; two Alexander Tucker plays in Grumbling Fur & Imbogodom.
MGMT play Cork next month, their great missing Philly Soul link from the 2nd album; some lovely folk/reggae tones from Me & My Friends; Paper Dollhouse from the extensive new Outer Church comp on Front & Follow.
And 'Troublemaker', the new single from the sublime current album by Camera Obscura. The joy.
