Van Morrison: “I’m current – I’m always current”

The Celtic soul warrior asserts himself in the new issue of Uncut

A lot to get through this week but, as usual, headline new arrivals: the absolute killer live set from Nathan Bowles’ new trio, rolling a bit like an Appalachian 75 Dollar Bill; something from Margo Price’s unexpectedly swift second album; old Josh Abrams scores just dropped on Bandcamp; Michael Lau duetting with Natalie Prass; Funkadelic remixed; new tracks from Michael Head and Michael Chapman; one more amazing taster for the Four Tet LP, now confirmed for the end of the month; Björk; William Tyler’s sweet edits of Grateful Dead feedback; and the protean boogie of Long Hots. RIP Grant Hart.
