Following on from my End Of The Road blog earlier in the week, a quick reminder here that you can follow all the action from the festival at this weekend. It might also be worth following Tom (@thomaspinnock) and Charlotte (@charltread) on Twitter, who are down there representing for us.

In the meantime, I’m trying to play other things besides Bitchin Bajas, writing about Israel Nash’s cosmic Iron John album, finishing an issue and enjoying very much the Radiohead/Teo Macero/Four Tet vibes of Floating Points, the very Real Estate-like solo album from Real Estate’s Martin Courtney and Brittany Howard’s rowdy extra-curricular larks away from The Alabama Shakes in Thuderbitch. Here you go…
