Guy Garvey's getting all rural this week with songs about going to (or coming from) the country, so expect music from Paul McCartney, Smog and Laura Veirs. His featured artists are Chicago band Califone, while his mystery musical history girl the Beckapedia goes all Brazilian.

And if that's not enough to entice you in, you can also discover just which Tom Waits tune takes Guy back to having a sore leg in a garden centre in Bury. It's essential listening.
