First – a confession! This playlist includes two old tracks: although one of them has never been released before and the other is a live cover from the other night. They’re at the bottom: John Renbourn is one and Yo La Tengo with Kurt Vile is the other. Elsewhere, all new vibes from Jon Hassell, Underworld, The Last Poets, Wand and more. Plenty to enjoy, I think.
