Featuring Haley Heynderickx, Mint Field, Gwenno, Graham Coxon and more...

Just in case you missed the reveal earlier in the week, there’s a new issue of Uncut on sale today – you can read more about it by clicking here.

In the meantime, here are some highlights from another strong week for new music. In terms of new discoveries, I really like Haley Heynderickx song, which has shades of both Sharon Van Etten and Jeff Buckley, as well as Mint Field, who have an agreeable Mazzy Star fuzz to them. There’s righteous post-punk vibes from Bas Jan and Shopping; welcome returns in their respective spheres for Graham Coxon, Gwenno and Young Fathers; Teenage Fanclub drummer Francis MacDonald‘s neo-classical project continues to grow; Tracey Thorn gets on her disco shoes.

More next week. Oh, and did I say the new issue of Uncut was now on sale..?
