This week’s Uncut listening essentials

As you can see, our week started with a load of Can albums, and a pretty concerted celebration of Jaki Liebezeit. Here, though, are this week’s key arrivals: three strong new songs by Ryley Walker, performed live for Aquarium Drunkard; an excellent preview of Jaxe Xerxes Fussell’s forthcoming album; Thundercat’s ravishing yacht rock jam featuring Kenny Loggins and Michael McDonald; Lambchop covering Prince; a new single from Promised Land Sound; and these three wonderful Erasmo Carlos reissues from Light In The Attic, which made me feel a bit of a fraud thinking of myself as a Tropicalia expert when I’d never come across them before. Am very much looking forward to sharing Arbouretum, Joan Shelley, Wooden Wand and Feral Ohms music as soon as I can but, in the meantime, thanks as ever for listening.
