On this week's show we're featuring the new record from Cults. Host is one of those records that actually works really well on thsi show; it's full of charm and great songs, and it also sets up and compliments a whole host of other music.

A whole host of other music of which there is plenty this week: new recordings from Grandaddy, Sufjan Stevens, and Sylvan Esso. Also, I can't emphasise strongly enough how important it is for you to stick around until the end enjoy the audacious bass notes in Clark's remix of Thom Yorke's Not The News. Amazing.

  4. The Crystal Lake (Piano Version) by Grandaddy on The Sophtware Slump … on a wooden piano (Dangerbird) πŸ†• πŸ“

    Another from the forthcoming Sophtware Slump special edition and retrospective, Jason Lytle's new solo piano recording of the album. I love the record so much that all of these are truly welcome insights into the record. What's interesting to me β€” and it's noteable in this track too β€” it's not completely solo, there's a little bit of production and additional instrumentation involved that just does what's necessary to elevate the track.
