It says records in the intro line, and that’s pretty misleading most weeks. But it’s especially with this list, since a bunch of the best stuff I’ve heard in the past few days has arrived in different digital ways: a live session from Steve Gunn and his band at folkadelphia.com; a Soundcloud comp of beautiful Bitchin Bajas live jams, quaintly organised into a “Side A” and a “Side B”; a preliminary clip from the next Omar Souleyman album, produced here by Mideselektor; and maybe best of all, the quiet arrival of Heron Oblivion, a raging new psych band featuring Ethan and Noel from Comets On Fire, and fronted by the great Meg Baird (it’s kind of next level Espers, if that makes sense to some of you?).

Quick reminder, anyhow, that our new issue of Uncut is out and about now: Van Morrison, Replacements, Ride, Blur, Alabama Shakes, Motorhead, Xylouris White, Cannibal Ox, Adam Curtis and plenty more. Enjoy responsibly etc…
