This week we'll consider the boarding house. Where people of all stripes rent rooms for one or more nights, and sometimes weeks, months and years. Boarders who otherwise would have nothing in common might share evening meals and a common living room.
And so this week's Idyllic lodgers include Fringe, Musetta, Jamdeluxe, Minor Chill, Echo TM and Peach Stealing Monkeys. I'm the proprietor, Jim Nye.
We'll begin with Dublin's Holly McGowan and a lovely, thoughtful track her debut release 'Chairs'
