The Fourth Uncut Playlist Of 2013: listen to Grizzly Bear/Lindstrøm, Jessica Pratt, Blues Control...
John Mulvey

To Matthew E White’s first London show tonight, all being well, but in the meantime this week’s playlist, with a few things to listen to and watch, as is becoming a hopefully useful habit.

Especially recommended new arrivals this week: the new Retribution Gospel Choir album – a heavy, even by their standards, complementary piece to Low’s “Invisible Way”, with Sparhawk & co joined by Nels Cline on one of the two 20-minute grinders; a fine collaborative debut from Golden Gunn (the clues are in the name); Soul Jazz’s latest and characteristically well-handled comp; an unexpected windfall of Alice Coltrane meditation cassettes; and a Jessica Pratt song I hadn’t heard before.

A glut of very exciting 2015 music this week, but before you get to that, maybe check out the Milton Nascimento track below which, as KidVinil Vinil pointed out in the comments section beneath...
