A lot of records on the playlist this week, I think, probably due to the fact that I’ve kept a note of what we’ve been playing for three full days. I guess the big one here is “Veckatimest”, the new Grizzly Bear album, which we now have a copy of. Incredible record, which I’ll be writing about soon, possibly tomorrow.

Not everything here’s quite so great, of course, and after one or two optimistic emails it’s worth pointing out again that these are just the things we’ve listened to in the Uncut office, not a filtered list of things we’ve actually liked.

Thanks, by the way, to everyone who’s contributed to the debate on the Super Furry Animals thread. We were so intrigued by the resounding lack of consensus over SFA’s best album that John Robinson suggested we listen to all of them and come to some kind of pseudo-scientific conclusion in the office. We’ll see how that works out in the next few days.

In the meantime, though. . .
