19 key records played in the Uncut office this past week…

No extract to share from the new Necks album (“Vertigo” is a relatively abbreviated 44 minutes in total), but a section of Duane Pitre’s terrific drone “Bayou Electric” has turned up, along with a track from the new Chris Forsyth and Koen Holtkamp album, and fresh music from Weyes Blood, Peaches, !!! and more. See what you think; it’s been a good week.
