As one of your many, many perks for becoming a Quietus subscriber, we're compiling a specially-curated playlist for our readers every month.

Across this August's five hours of noise you'll find pure fire from The Bug's extraordinary new album, irresistibly weird pop from Audiobooks, Moor Mother's supreme foray into jazz with the band Irreversible Entanglements, plus the picks from our cassette music, psych rock, New Weird Britain, international pop, metal and dance columns, and plenty of the completely uncategorisable, as per.

In order to listen to the playlists, you'll need the link - you can become a Quietus Low Culture or Sound & Vision tier subscriber here. And FYI, the playlist is but one of the perks you could receive as a Quietus Subscriber.

Our latest Low Culture podcast features Nicky Wire of Manic Street Preachers discussing Echo And The Bunnymen and is live now, as are exclusive essays on subjects such as Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and River Cottage, Elvis Presley's Way Down, Olivetti Typewriters, Arthur C. Clarke, the occult history of Accrington Stanley FC, Julian Cope and John Cale. Subscribers will also receive the brand new VÄLVĒ LP, which would be among our albums of the year even if we weren't releasing it. More is being announced very soon indeed, and rest assured it's not to be missed. Access your playlists below the Steady paywall here:
