Did you get records for Christmas? We did! They are our very favourite kind of present. So this month on Buffet we play a mix of new releases and stuff we got so – as usual – it’s a spread. You can listen to the show here and here’s the track list:
M.I.A. – Warriors The Twilight Singers – Teenage Wristband Sauna Youth – The Bridge Hinds – Bamboo Ty Segall – Candy Sam Tom Waits – Dog Treat Erykah Badu – The Cell Ben Folds Five – Sky High Savages – Waiting For A Sign Ulrika Spacek – Beta Male The Drones – Cold and Sober Yann Tiersen – Porz Goret
Archers of Loaf – White Trash Heroes

I’m back from WOMAD…had a fantastic time and totally recommend going. It’s got a really great atmosphere, very chilled, love the mix of dance, arts and music and continually discovering new stuff. I’m just putting together a WOMAD show, featuring music from some of my favourite acts. I tried to buy tunes while I was there but so did a million other people so I’m not sure when it’ll be broadcast but I’ll give you some warning!
