An extra-long list this week, since we seem to have worked our way through more stuff than usual. A lot of good stuff, too, I’d say, with one or two exceptions, and a tremendous new mystery record that’s coming out in the summer and which hasn’t, I think, been announced as yet – hence the necessary evasiveness.

A quick thanks, before I roll this one out, to Arbouretum’s Dave Heumann, who posted on the review of Arbouretum’s recent London show; nice that they enjoyed it as much as we did.
