Eclectic Mainline 2nd January 2013

For the same reason that last week’s show was not a special festive edition, this week’s is not a special new year show.  Would you rather I had varied things a bit?  Let me know if so, either in the comments here, or on Twitter.  I just want to get as much new music into my show each week as I possibly can.  I do have one or two ideas for special features, which I might introduce over the next few weeks, but otherwise I will just stick to my “here are some new releases I think you should hear” formula.

If you’ve been listening to this show for a few years, you’ll know I’m a big fan of Max Richter.  Here’s a new tune of his, composed for for Random International’s ‘Rain Room’ at the Barbican Centre, down in that London:

Caitlin Rose, who has a cross-generational appeal in our has, is back too, and here’s her new single:
