Before we get to the records, a quick reminder that December’s Club Uncut is here already, with Department Of Eagles, Hush Arbors and Mr David Viner comprising what looks like one of our best bills of the year at the Borderline tonight.

I imagine I’ll file some kind of report tomorrow morning – see you there, if you were lucky enough to snag tickets. Another plug, too, for a rather under-publicised show on Thursday that I’m pretty psyched about: possibly the London debut of Endless Boogie at the Old Blue Last. Again, I’ll try and post a review before the end of the week.

In the meantime, these are the last 17 records we played round these parts. Death, Mountains and the Six Organs comp are probably this week’s big new hits, while that Alela Diane album grows on me, surprisingly, with every play. Not feeling the Kanye, though. . .
