The latest sounds direct from the Uncut office stereo

A lot to dig into for this playlist. Standouts for me are Beak> at their Motorik best, Elkhorn’s expressive folk/psych-rock – the best 18 minutes and 22 seconds you’ll have this week, I promise – while the first fruits of Brocker Way’s stand-alone Wild Wild Country’s soundtrack finally emerge. Anyway, I’ll let you decide. Meanwhile, before you get stuck in, here’s a gentle reminder that our latest issue is on sale, with Prince on the cover and a lot more besides to enjoy inside. You can read all about it here.
