Some fantastic new additions here, though it's been tough these past couple of days to navigate away from the playlist that Caribou posted on Youtube: 1,000 tracks that you're advised to play on shuffle. I keep getting Wire and J Dilla every time I dig in, but it's really a constant source of familiar pleasures and usefully contextualised new discoveries.

If you can tear yourself away, lots to enjoy below, I’d hope. Personal highlights: the first full track to emerge from Matthew E White’s “Fresh Blood”; my favourite Sufjan album since “Seven Swans”; a very useful comp of latterday Cope; and the amazing second set from Sam Lee..
