A bit of a complicated week at Uncut, given that we’ve migrated from the eight floor down to the third floor, into what is admittedly a more comfortable space (with natural light!) until recently occupied by Now magazine. Moving aside the discarded copies of Fifty Shades Darker, here’s what we’ve been annoying the new neighbours with: special attention, please, to the fine new Steve Gunn record I’ve been keeping quiet about for a while; an excerpt from Eno’s excellent “The Ship”; the return of Hope Sandoval; an auspicious hook-up between Christian Fennesz and Jim O’Rourke; and, maybe best of all, something wonderful from Brigid Mae Power, who reminds me of both Tim Buckley and Liz Fraser – but not, oddly, of This Mortal Coil’s “Song To The Siren”…
