Playlist 09.01.09

Stuart Bailie | 20:14 UK time, Sunday, 11 January 2009

Last Friday's show was inspired by an e-mail from Chris Best. He wanted to prove his wife wrong. She said that the radio never played his kind of music. Chris asked for a bit of J Tillman, drummer with Fleet Foxes and proper solo artist. So I put in three tracks for the new album. Maybe I would have done so anyway...

JudyClay.jpgMark, a regular listener, enjoyed last week's play from 'Moondance'. He pointed out that Judy Clay sang backing vocals on the Van Morrison album, and suggested that I cue up something by herself. So it was a reasonable excuse to playlist 'Private Number', which is never going to be much of an ordeal. Next week, lashings of the new Animal Collective record.

  • Comment number 1.

    Thanks for the Tilman tracks and the mention. Can't say I've ever "inspired" much in my life up until now least of all a Radio show.

    This week I've been diggin' The Department of Eagles album 'In Ear Park' and The self titled 'Pale Young Gentlemen' (careful what you google there!) The latter especially sits on the cookier side of United States music maybe putting you in mind of Fleet foxes meet Midlake.

  • Comment number 2.

    Sorry, the PaleYoungGentlemen album is called "Black Forest (Tra La La)"
