The latest sounds from the Uncut office stereo

It might be fanciful, but I hope that this week’s spring vibes have somehow made its way into this latest playlist. The new tracks from Grouper, Sade, Aisha Badru and Jennifer Castle have a certain satisfying warmth to them. Elsewhere, there’s the mighty return of Dylan Carlson – distinctly channeling the heavy drones of those early Earth records – and Nels Cline, alongside more brilliance from Mind Over Mirrors and Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever.

We’ll be back next week with some exciting news. In the meantime, feel free to get stuck in to the superior sonic selection below…
