Nice to get back from a week or so’s holiday and find a heap of new music worth listening to. Quick highlights: Kendrick of course (the U2 track is, against the odds, tremendous); the new Floating Points jam; an amazing Kamasi Washington tune and film; the Como Mamas with a band; and James Elkington and Jeff Tweedy direct from the Wilco loft. Wish I had something to play you from the new (last?) Träd, Gräs Och Stenar album, but it’s very much of a piece with that gorgeous box set from last year. Also amazed and delighted to get Van’s Bang recordings and much more, finally, in a legitimate form, and the Mulatu Astatke reissue is beautiful.

Have fun on Record Store Day, if you’ve got the strength, and grab me a copy of that unreleased Alice Coltrane disc if you spot one. Also, please buy our new issue of Uncut, which is on sale today: I wrote about our Summer Of Love special and the other key ingredients (Fleet Foxes, Dylan, Twin Peaks etc) here.
