In haste today, as I’m surrounded by removal men, acclimatising to a new computer, and trying to get two magazines out of the door by the end of play. Nevertheless, here’s this week’s selection. Notable new additions from Tinariwen, Joanna Newsom and Israel Nash that are well worth checking out, if you’ve got a few minutes to spare…
