I guess the tagline says plenty about the riches in the list this week, but also spare some time for the private press gem trailing the new Imaginational Anthems set, the very fine Itasca track (strongly recommended if you were keen on The Weather Station’s album last year) and, though I’ve probably flagged it up before, the new Noura Mint Seymali. She’s great. I don’t have a link for The Double, but it’s an epic Bo Diddley drone-out by Jim White (Dirty Three, Xylouris White etc) and The Cairo Gang, and I can’t recommend it enough.
