This week, we have been listening to...

Some goodies for you this week, via the Uncut office stereo. What can I tell you about these folks? Some strong new work from favourites like Eleanor Friedberger, Courtney Barnett and Beach House, plus a couple of Valentines-inspired one-offs from Frank Ocean and Ryan Adams. Among the new discoveries, I’ve enjoyed Wim Dehaen’s Pierre Boulez tribute and also Sons Of Kemet’s progressive jazz.

Before I go, I should dutifully remind you of our new issue, on sale now. Many riches, including Joni Mitchell, Mark E Smith, the Breeders, Josh T Pearson and lots, lots more. Read all about it by clicking here.
