18 key audio antidotes to this mad, mad, mad, mad world...

Once again, something that might hopefully be a bit of a distraction from ongoing multiple meltdowns: this week’s selection of music from the Uncut stereo. Please do check new additions: the ever-excellent Nathan Bowles (been sat on this one for ages and am relieved to finally share); another top Pye Corner Audio/Head Technician jam; the crazy Patten mixtape (Cocteaus! Cypress Hill! Hecker etc!); Devendra’s return (the album’s kinda early Caetano meets Flight Of The Conchords and is maybe his best in a while); the Betty Davis preview of course; and this week’s revelatory Neil clip…
