11 Anita Madigan – The Dalai Lama Loves You All
12 Threshold Shift – Hang In There
13 Leafeater – Garden of Love
14 Negatives – 69
15 Creation Roots – Let Jah Music Play
16 handmadehands – Over The Edge
17 Laura Groves – Coast
18 Daisy Cutter – Morning Sun
19 Yo El Rey – And One For The Doctor
20 Talk To Angels – He Loves Cilla

We also played these other tracks this week:

Girlpool -Blah Blah Blah
Alt-J – Left Hand Free
The Delvaux – At The Jeunesse Doree
