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