Only had half an ear on new records these past couple of days, since Mark and I have been sifting through your many, many nominations for Great Lost Albums, following our special the other month. Pretty amazing discoveries there, that are going to keep us busy for a while.



There is, though, one fairly auspicious new arrival that I can’t talk about for a bit: place your guesses here to be met with the usual devious, non-committal shrugs and so on.

And if you have a moment, please check out a new blog, Electric Eden, by our colleague and friend, Rob Young. It’s been launched to coincide with the impending publication of Rob’s book of the same name, a history of visionary British folk music, which is the first music book I’ve been excited to read in quite a while. Plenty of interesting stuff on the blog already.
