Playlist 249 - Jan 15 2013

Less music on the show this week, purely because several tracks were longer.

For example, 11 minutes odd for two great rambling pieces of kosmische from Yo La Tengo, one from the new album Fade, sung by James McNew, and one from 2000's And then nothing turned itself inside out sung by Ira and Georgia. Brilliant and great to hear them in what sounds to me like top form.

Also, two Choice Prize nominees in the shape of 2012 show favourites Mumblin' Deaf Ro and windings; beautiful cinematic classical music from Michael Price (new on Erased Tapes, pictured below) and Matthew Bourne (2012); a devilishly catchy Wussy remix; Goat and Os Mutantes rubbing up against each other; and more Lord Huron, sounding a bit like Paul Simon 's Graceland transplanted to the US west coast - in other words, very nice indeed.

As always, more info on these pages. In particular, check the recent Best of 2012 posts for full details on those selections.
