In haste again this week, but various delays in posting this have at least meant that the playlist has kept growing: 32 entries, with seven interesting things to listen to, including Neil Young and a couple of strong new artists, the pretty psych Morgan Delt and Matt Kivel, whose album reminds me a bit of the first one by Bon Iver.

Also please check the gamelan jam from an agglomeration of Pelt, Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides and Dead C members. And if you were in any way diverted by my Top 50 favourite albums chart (compiled for the NME poll) a few weeks back, I’ve dug out the 131 record-strong longlist that I worked from and posted it on the blog: You can see my Top 131 albums here.
