Still at that stage of the year where I nearly type 2014 every time instead of 2015, but time moves on - swifter, perhaps, than Bjork for one would've liked this week, given how an unauthorised leak forced the release of "Vulnicura" a couple of months ahead of schedule.

Still at that stage of the year where I nearly type 2014 every time instead of 2015, but time moves on – swifter, perhaps, than Bjork for one would’ve liked this week, given how an unauthorised leak forced the release of “Vulnicura” a couple of months ahead of schedule.



A very good album, though – her best since “Vespertine”, possibly – and one accompanied by this exceptional Bjork interview at Pitchfork. It’s another rich harvest here this week, and I’d especially like to highlight the new album from Dean McPhee, a track from which previews below.

The next Uncut arrives in UK shops next Tuesday, and perhaps to your home a little earlier than that if you subscribe. I’ll make some fuss about it next week, but in the meantime, dig in…
