Few notes about this lot. The Mark Fry album is brand new, though sounds rather compellingly as if it was recorded in 1971, while the Modeselektor album features Thom Yorke on a couple of tracks and works in places as a neat Berlin companion piece to “The King Of Limbs”.

Just writing something about the Mikal Cronin album for Wild Mercury Sound in the next issue of Uncut, by the way. And one more thing: it may be worth reiterating that these playlists merely document the records we’ve played in the office, and don’t automatically constitute any kind of endorsement. I like most things here, but not everything. Thanks.
