Some Easter farings from the Uncut office stereo

Here’s this week’s playlist, then. There’s a welcome return for Dead Meadow’s sludgefest, more magic from Laura Veirs and Let’s Eat Grandma. Props, too, to Jess Williamson’s bewitching cosmic folk, Kadhja Bonet’s psychedelic soul and the chilly ambient drones of aYia. New Steve Gunn, Hiss Golden Messenger plus Matthew E White (“the most ambitious crossover event in history”, right?) Anyway, please enjoy! Have a great Easter bank holiday, too.
