Evening, all! @JimMcCauley at your service, what with @kleptones (and of course @nessiest) being away on some sort of Club 18-30 holiday complete with sun, sea and shit hotel wifi. It's a miserable day here in Bath, but I'm taking comfort in the fact that it's doubtless worse for everyone who's swarmed into the city to brave the horrors of the annual Christmas Market.
Before we get on to tonight's entertainment, here's your four-week warning for the impending 2015 #FestiveVortex. It's the original and best Vortex, made up of all our favourite tunes released over the past year, so start making your shortlist and check it at least twice.
But now, is it the #IMissedThatVortex or is it the #EspritdEscalierVortex? I'm calling it; it's the #EspritdEscalierVortex, an hour or so of tunes that you would have submitted for previous vortices if you'd only thought of them in time. It's a thoroughly random selection as you might expect, but it all seems to have fitted together rather well, so thanks to everyone's who's chipped in a song or two.
The download's here, and here's the HearThis stream:
See you at 8pm GMT!
