Playlist 27.04.08 (11:08 pm)

A little bit of everything tonight! Starting with Stars Like Fleas, whose "new" album I finally got hold of... Then Grizzly Bear's contribution to David Shrigley's Worried Noodles, of which more next week - came out last year but I only just picked up on it!
And then we had a fair mix of stuff from Dagmar Krause-related bands and solo acts, from her Weimar-Cabaret interpretations (nobody equals her in my opinion) to Slapp Happy and the brilliant Art Bears.
Then a similar, if briefer, treatment of one of my favourite singer/violinists, Carla Kihlstedt.
Later, the b-side of 65daysofstatic's new single, and a few tracks from the rather fabulous new compilation Magnetism, That Electricity on Highpoint Lowlife.

As usual, plus more.
Come along on Thursday night to Feral Media's POWWOW gig featuring The Longest Day and aheadphonehome at the Sound Lounge. Should rock. Here's the Facebook event :) And the last.fm listing.

Surprising amount of new stuff came in this week, to the extent that a few things got pushed back to next week (couple of brilliant compilations - stay tuned kidz!)
So, starting with Sweden's Ass (from whom more next week too!), and on the other side of that 7", Sweden's Blood Music!
Also on the ever-wonderful Static Caravan is English harpist/singer/songwriter Sefa Steer.
Oh, and speaking of split 7"s, we have Tunng & Stars Like Fleas ingaugurating Hidden Hive's Kissing Kin series.
Also, the stunning Godspeed-like rapture of Bleeding Heart Narrative, Keiran Hebden doing math-rocky business with Oxford's Foals, two excellent tracks from Sydney's Silver Bone Tone, plus Melbourne's Anonymeye and Sheffield's Cam Deas bring us tasty processed acoustic guitar courtesy of a couple of fine Australian micro-labels.
Just how we like it here at Utility Fog Towers, where fine music meets fine, er, wait, I've lost track of the metaphor. It's just like I'm on-air, only written down.
