Jewels ahoy!

Here’s a peek at what we’ve played this week on the Uncut office stereo. A lot of records, sadly, I can’t divulge as yet – but here’s the best of what’s fit to print, certainly. Strong comebacks from Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, Janelle Monae and Belly, a teaser of Jon Hopkins’ new album as well as lovely flavours from Modern Studies, Mount Eerie and Hop Along.

Oh, and don’t forget – the current issue of Uncut is very much on sale. You can read all about it by clicking here.
