The Futureheads album, meanwhile, is one of the most unpleasantly loud things I’ve heard in some time, and sent me running to an excellent blog at http://sickmouthy.blogspot.com/ which grapples with the iniquities of too-loud mastering, compression and so on in a a surprisingly compelling way. Worth a look.

Here’s the last 12 records I’ve played, anyway:

1. Brethren Of The Free Spirit – All Things From Him, Through Him And In Him (audioMER)

2. My Morning Jacket – Evil Urges (Rough Trade)

3. The Futureheads – This Is Not The World (Nul)

4. Animal Collective – Water Curses (Domino)

5. Four Tet – Ringer (Domino)

6. Scarlett Johannson – Anywhere I Lay My Head

7. Times New Viking – Rip It Off (Matador)

8. Tetine – Let Your Xs Be Ys (Soul Jazz)

9. Atlas Sound – Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel (4AD)

10. Various – Garden Of Forking Paths (Important)

11. Flight Of The Conchords – Flight Of The Conchords (Warner)

12. The Night Marchers – See You In Magic (One Little Indian)
