In the meantime, this week’s playlist might not be exactly overflowing with new arrivals, but there are a couple of streams/downloads worth grabbing. Check the links below for a very interesting, if disjointed (“Shimmy Shimmy Ya”!) mix by Roll The Dice, one of whom co-produced much of the Fever Ray album, among other things.

And Purling Hiss, who I’ve written about at length in the new issue of Uncut out any day now, have a live session up on daytrotter.com which, amusingly, is much higher-fi than their formal releases. Still can’t get enough of “Run From The City”, in any version.

Oh yeah, the Kate Bush album is on its way, apparently…
