Plus here are some of UNCUT’s recommended new releases from the past few weeks – check out these albums if you haven’t already:

Various Artists – Theme Time Radio Hour With Your Host Bob Dylan – A fully authorised two-CD collection of Bob Dylans cool radio show has finally been collated.

The Black Crowes – Warpaint The Black Crowes return after a seven year silence, with an album that “operates comfortably inside parameters defined by The Rolling Stones, The Band, The Faces and Creedence Clearwater Revival”.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds – Dig, Lazurus, Dig!!! – “The band has never sounded better, and Cave seems to have relaxed into the hysteria of his vocal style; like Elmer Gantry singing Leonard Cohen at a tent-revival.”

Duffy – Rockferry – Debut album from the Welsh soul singer, on to her third week at the top of the UK singles chart with track ‘Mercy’.

Hot Chip – Made In The Dark
