Eclectic Mainline playlist – 2nd Sept 2009

Iron & Wine - Around The Well

Iron & Wine - Around The Well

Regular listeners will have, in recent weeks, heard me play wonderful covers by Iron And Wine of songs by New Order, Flaming Lips and The Postal Service, all from the new compilation Around The Well. Tonight I played one of the Iron And Wine originals from this 2CD set. It’s a mighty fine collection indeed. Also tonight’s show featured 4 tunes that could well be vying for inclusion in the ‘ best of the year’ list when it comes to thinking about such things – new releases by HEALTH, Wildbirds & Peacedrums, APSE and The Very Best Of are all jolly spiffing. By the way, I think I’m reflecting the bands’ own personal preferences there by using all capitals for some of them, but I could be wrong.

The full list of tunes played tonight is thus

Wildbirds & Peacedrums – My Heart (Deerhoof remix)
The Very Best Of – Warm Heart Of Africa
Bibio – Palm Of Your Wave
Joker’s Daughter – Lucid
Slow Club – Trophy Room
Metronomy – Do The Right Thing
APSE – 3.1
Nick Cave & Warren Ellis – The Rider Song
Little Dragon – Feather
Iron & Wine – Sacred Vision
Grizzly Bear – While you wait for the others
Boards Of Canada – Amo Bishop Roden (Warp20 (Chosen) compilation)
HEALTH – Die Slow
Dark Captain Light Captain – Questions (Hatchback remix)
