After last week’s goldrush, a few more choice new arrivals in Playlist 42, not least the superb new Animal Collective, which I’ve been expressly forbidden to write about ‘til next week.

Also interesting here, I think, is a previously unreleased Arthur Lee/Love album from 1971, and something of a shock arrival, a single from Elizabeth Fraser released as tribute to one of the song’s collaborators, the late Jake Brockman. Not wholly sold on it after one listen, but the remixes sounded OK. I’ll play it some more later and report back.
