24 key records played in the Uncut office these past few days

I’m pretty late in posting this, so not going to add much in the way of preamble. Quick heads up that the new Uncut is out about now, though (Bruce is on the cover), and that among other stuff here I’d strongly recommend listening to Bitchin Bajas & Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Tim Hecker and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith…
