Playlist for 5 April 2013 (AOTW: British Sea Power – Machineries Of Joy)

I’m not normally on air on Friday evenings but I’m on the cover roster tonight, filling in for Elliot who’s taking a two-week break from Amplify. I had a bit of a break myself (which is why I wasn’t on air last night), having come back from two days in York. About 8 hours I was sitting next to the Stamford Bridge battle memorial on the River Derwent, listening to my new album of the week, the wonderful Machineries Of Joy from the transcendent British Sea Power – it’s best listened to in wide open spaces and at historic battle sites.
