Welcome back to the Sunday roundup of Cut music. Here's where you can find out which songs have accompanied the week's action, and have a bit of a thought about which one you love the best. It's a voyage of discovery for all of us.

With that in mind, I'm gonna throw my hat in the ring and plump for the weirdest song of the week. Cat Power's 'Werewolf' scores massively in my mind - not least for conjuring up the vivid mental image of an actual werewolf which is powered by cats. But the one piece of music which has really bent my head this week is Baikonour's 'Lick Lokoum'.

What IS it? I can hear hammered dulcimers, and weird whooshy synths, and something that sounds like a stick running across the spokes in a bicyle wheel. It's not even really a SONG, as such, just a drone and some wibbling, but by GOLLY is it distracting.

Here's the Spotify playlist, please, in tribute to The Drums, roll up the bottoms of your jeans, and put on some white sports socks before listening. It's a style thing.
