The new music playlist for week 12 gathers together another week of free downloads, new releases and album previews. Everything from Mew to UUMA, from The Black Ryder to Active Child. And a whole bunch in between. Blur and Death Cab For Cutie continued to tease their new albums, and there were debuts from False Advertising, Cabane and Wisht Hounds.

And you can’t force me to choose a song of the week, you know. You just can’t. Go on - try. I will just say that the new tracks from The Black Ryder and Turtle are absolutely exquisite. And UUMA. Definitely need to give a shout out to that slice of fried lovely as well.
