A busy few days, with No Direction Home last weekend, thenMikal Cronin in Dalston on Monday, and a lot of good records to play while we’re winding up the next issue (I’ve embedded a couple of choice Youtube links this week in the list).

A busy few days, with No Direction Home last weekend, thenMikal Cronin in Dalston on Monday, and a lot of good records to play while we’re winding up the next issue (I’ve embedded a couple of choice Youtube links this week in the list).

Maybe three albums I really struggled with in this list, but please find a bit of time to check out Sam Lee , the Grizzly Bear and Frank Ocean links, and Minotaur Shock’s daring follktronica revival. Ombre, some of you may be interested to know, feature the excellent Julianna Barwick. And this Panabrite record playing right now is top dollar kosmische flotation tank fare; those who like Emeralds could do worse than check it out.

One project in the wind, I think, is some kind of 2012 halftime report. I’ll put a list together in the next few days, then we’ll try and build one out of your votes. Thanks, as ever, for your support..
