After the Best Albums Of 2014: Halftime Report business earlier in the week, it’s good to push on today with a bunch of very fine new arrivals, many of which you can hear at least tracks from below.

The Hiss Golden Messenger has been among the redacted entries on these playlists for a good while now, and it’s a relief to finally be able to talk about what I think is straight off one of my favourite albums of the year. Also strongly recommended: Ty Segall; predictably; the righteous Bitchin’ Bajas album that unfortunately I don’t have a link for as yet; the OV Wright reissues; David Kilgour; the new Giorgio Moroder single; The Allah-Las; Plastikman (there’s the whole album on that Youtube link); and Jeff Tweedy trying out his whole new album at the Mountain Jam festival. Plenty to be getting on with for a day or two, I would hope…
