33 musical glimpses into the melting pot of Uncut HQ

Here we go: Gwenifer Raymond is a wild American primitive player from Brighton via Cardiff and her video is very funny; all-female desert jams, from Niger, courtesy of Les Filles De Illighadad; an Arabic funk comp; lost and frail Ed Askew songs; something new from British folk radicals Stick In The Wheel; a new Floating Points track; another Ty Segall single; and maybe best new arrival of all, the first extract from the forthcoming third Xylouris White album… Hardcore!
