That pretending-not-to-be-annoyed-by-the-Mercurys morning of the year. But as way of distraction, here’s this week’s rather late office playlist.

That pretending-not-to-be-annoyed-by-the-Mercurys morning of the year. But as way of distraction, here’s this week’s rather late office playlist.

A few strong newcomers to flag up: the Jessica Pratt debut that I raved about yesterday; albums from both Koen Holtkamp and his duo, Mountains; this month’s MVEE (sits well next to “Psychedelic Pill”, I think); the whole Bryan Ferry Palm Court flashback. I keep coming back to Limiñanas’ “Crystal Anis”, too, which is ostensibly “Bonnie Et Clyde” covered by the VU for the duration of an entire album. Can’t complain, really…
