So this month the core album has not arrived. If it doesn't show up soon. I'll buy a copy so watch this space. Other albums Jen cloher - Self-titled. 7.5/10. Jen Cloher is the founder of Mil records and is Courtney Barnett's partner. This is her fifth album and it sounds like Courtney Barnett except a bit proggy. Kurt Vile makes an appearance. Queens of the Stone Age - Villains. 8/10. Pretty good. A lot of fun. Upcoming October - Kelela November - Ojala December... oh the magazine is no more... but subscription is now cheaper. *update* I received another copy after emailing RT. They sent me a vinyl version, which is beautiful but it has a download code so my rating for the album is 8/10.
