Playlist 426 - Dec 6 2016

A mix and match this week, some Best of 2016, some new music (ahead of the Christmas Special next week).

The former.
Entrance, beautiful sweeping orch pop.
Weyes Blood, a monumental noise with a voice deceptively smooth.
North Sea Radio Orchestra, a wonderful album of shifting avant folk music.

The latter.
Nadia Reid, back with a new album in the new year, a lovely foretaste.
Whyte Horses, reinterpreting their album with a 400 strong children's choir.
A Winged Victory For The Sullen, soundtrack music with great propulsion.

And a classic from Super Furry Animals, currently on tour.
