The 1st Uncut Playlist Of 2021

Morning, everyone. High start to the day with the arrival of the new CRB Betty’s Blends live set this morning; you can hear their version of Slim Harpo’s “The Music’s Hot” down at the bottom of the page.

First, though, you need to get through a few more new arrivals, including Will Oldham covering Merle Haggard, Feist, Gas, Forest Swords, a reissue of one of my favourite clicks + cuts records (by Jan Jelinek), and an incredible jam by WET TUNA, who feature Matt Valentine, PG Six and John Moloney. I’d love to add something from the Rick Tomlinson comeback set (you might remember him from his killer Voice Of The Seven Woods and Voice Of The Seven Thunders albums) which sounds a bit like Silent Way-era Miles leading a Tibetan Buddhist ritual, but only seems to exist on vinyl. Try and snag a copy if you can from
