Slightly conscious that this week’s playlist is top heavy with returning US indie stalwarts – Stephen Malkmus, the Breeders, St Vincent, MGMT – but it’s hard to complain when the music is evidently this strong. There’s a lovely track, too, from an old friend, PJ Harvey. At the less storied end of the scale, please take the time to check out current Uncut office favourites Khruangbin – psych jams from Texas! – as well as the melancholic folk of Jim Ghedi and some classy electronic business from Richard Fearless, finding a happy place between William Basinski and Detroit techno.

Did I mention the Breeders? Expect some more exciting news from Kim and co next week…
