27 key tracks and albums played in the Uncut basement this week

Sorry if this comes across as bragging or smugness, but I’ve been sat on a few really excellent albums these past few weeks that, as they’re still officially unannounced, I haven’t been able to talk about here. Thrilled, though, that The Weather Station’s new self-titled album has broken cover in the last couple of days: if you have only time for one song on this list, please make it “Thirty”.
