The 3rd Uncut New Music Playlist of 2020

The return of Jason Isbell and Lucinda Williams, plus King Krule, Hailu Mergia and Jon Hopkins

Here’s this week’s playlist – topped off by a couple of returning heroes, the mighty Dr. Octagon and Ray LaMontagne.

Otherwise, some new discoveries including Snail Mail, Moon Hooch and Neighbour Lady, an unreleased track from Shirley Collins, new sounds from Joaquim Cooder and Cut Chemist.
