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
And if you fancy a quick flashback to 2015 our end of year review is also up on Mixcloud. We got to see some great bands and play brilliant music last year, how very lucky we are:
Monotony – Luxury Flats Yo La Tengo – Friday I’m in Love Julia Holter – Feel You Young Fathers – Rain or Shine Neko Case – Somebody Led Me Away

Patti Smith – Frederick Sleaford Mods – Bronx In A Six John Grant – Down Here Sufjan Stevens – Death With Dignity Nina Simone – Lilac Wine Algiers – Black Eunuch
Finally, our chums from The Record Club have just started broadcasting a monthly show which is worth a listen.

As regular listeners to Eclectic Mainline will know, I can’t keep up with all the music downloads that get sent my way and far prefer a 5″ shiny disc, or even better a 7″ or 12″ black disc, or…even better…. a 7″ orange disc. Which is precisely what landed in the postpile a couple of weeks ago from Affairs Of The Heart Records, the new single by The Elwins:
That’s how it looks, and this is how it sounds. (Affairs Of The Heart have chosen not to enable embedding of the song, so you will have to click through to hear it I’m afraid).
Also in the show tonight was this by COH:
…and two songs from the 2012 Guided By Voices album Class Clown Spots a UFO, including this one:

The new album by Autechre is worthy of note for more reasons than one.Â Firstly, the deluxe vinyl edition looks really..really nice and I will be very tempted to buy it when it’s released on 22nd March.Â But what I think is especially interesting about this release is what you get as a download with the album.
