A few new tracks from previously teased albums surfaced this week, so please scroll down and check out further excellent music from Kamasi Washington, Courtney Barnett/Kurt Vile and, best of all I think, The Weather Station. Also we have strong new singles from Ty Segall and Aldous Harding, and something Satie-esque from Robert Haigh, who was my favourite junglist when he recorded as Omni Trio 20-odd years ago.

Plenty more here, of course. Further exposure to the Bitchin Bajas album makes me think it’s their masterpiece. Can’t wait to play you the Brigid Mae Power single (and also Beast, which is a new project by Koen Holtkamp from Mountains). RIP to Folke Rabe, master of drone. And don’t forget the Four Tet album drops tonight.

No idea now, two days on, why we played those Dexy’s singles, before you ask.
