Phil’s playlist for the month of May

Searching for some new favourite artists, or bands this month? Here are my recommendations for a play list for May, with an array of home-grown UK talent (including the excellent Bobby Long) and international stars old and new, across many different genres. I have included some live tracks and some very rare covers, including The Foo fighters covering Elton John‘s “Tiny Dancer“; and Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan covering a Portishead track!

I have tried to link as many of the tracks as possible to their videos on YouTube or Vimeo for you to check out:
