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

Supergrass – Dimond Hoo Ha – Britpop alumni enter ‘Berlin! period. Almost. Uncut Q&A with frontman Gaz Coombs too.

Beck – Odelay Deluxe Edition – 90s slack hop opus, remastered and extended with remixes, B-sides and two unreleased tracks has stood up to the test of time — Stephen Trousse revists Beck’s genius.

Elbow – The Seldom Seen Kid – Guy Garvey and band return with great fourth album, featuring a duet with Richard Hawley too.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks – Real Emotional Trash – Former Pavement slacker Malkmus returns with second album backed by the Jicks.

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.”
