Bobby Gillespie's playlist: Diiv, George Harrison, Cate Le Bon and more

From the latest summer dreampop to hypnotic trance, the Primal Scream singer shares his current favourite tracks

Under the Sun – Diiv

Ecstatic summer dreampop from the talented Zachary Cole Smith. Totally uplifting and inspiring, this is the best single of the summer. Guitar heaven. A hit in my world – I love it!

All Things Must Pass – George Harrison

This song, alongside Isn’t It a Pity and Beware of Darkness, was just about all I could listen to while convalescing with my broken back this summer. True spiritual music from a deep soul – thank you George.

In Japan the Sky is Always Close to You – Carolyn Peyton

An early 1970’s post-hippy commune, drug-damaged, fucked up folk-jazz mix of Joni Mitchell and Laura Nyro. Intense and beautiful.

Find Me – Cate Le Bon

Victorian music box, toys-come-alive-in-the-attic-of-your-mind neo-psych from the beautifully strangely strange voiced Cate Le Bon. Time slips away angularly.

Divine – Golden Teacher

Twelve inches of paranoid neo-rave and hypnotic trance-out. Heavy Sensoria-eraCabaret Voltaire vibe.
