The 20th Uncut New Music Playlist Of 2019

The in sounds from way out...

Trending Now

As the gates of Hell have well and truly opened this week, I hope this selection will bring you some respite. Amazing to hear new music after 40 years from Betty Davis – expertly delivered by Danielle Maggio – as well as a ton of other returning faves: Joan Shelley, Jenny Hval, Kacy And Clayton, Wilco, DJ Shadow and more. Incidentally, don’t forget you can read more about Joan and her brilliant new album in the new issue of Uncut – The Who on the cover – which you can buy in the shops or direct from our friends here. Free P&P, I should mention, too.
