NO ENCORE #054 | Play Misty For Me
That’s a reference to both a film starring Clint Eastwood and Jessica Walter and the NO ENCORE featured album review this week which, incidentally, kinda-sorta divides the room as Dave, Colm and Craig reconvene to make sense of all the music that’s fit to chat about.
Also on the show – Elaine Mai drops by to discuss her new EP, which gets an official launch in The Workman’s Club on May 5, so be sure not to miss that.
ACT ONE: The boys recap their respective down-time before tackling important news items involving Stormzy, Bob Dylan, Ed Sheeran and yet another Britpop love-in.
ACT TWO: Elaine Mai talks her upcoming The Colour of the Night EP; her first solo material since 2014, working with the prolific Bob Gallagher and her ace remix of Liza Flume’s ‘Sheets’.
ACT THREE: The always-lively Songs of the Week brings together Kendrick Lamar, Rejjie Snow, Gorillaz, Iggy Azelea and Zayn.
ACT FOUR: He’s brash, he’s outspoken and he’s once again pushing the envelope – Father John Misty returns with third album Pure Comedy, an existential 75-minute epic. Is it worth your time?
EXIT MUSIC: Oh Joy – ‘So Swell’
