A Patterns People's Playlist

This week's People's Playlist is inspired by the dot-loving Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. And there's something new from Michael Kiwanuka and Karen O for the Just Added playlist.

This week's People's Playlist is inspired by the dot-loving Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, whose exhibition has had New Yorkers queuing around the block. We zig zag through some Outkast, Sinatra, Stereolab and Prince, learning about stripes and Alan Partridge's 'L'homme du Sport' along the way.

There's something new from Michael Kiwanuka and Karen O for our Just Added playlist, another Headphones Moment, and tons of top tunes.
