Our new issue of Uncut should be arriving for subscribers over the weekend, and in UK shops by Tuesday. You can look forward to: 1 A genuinely new Pink Floyd story by Tom Pinnock. 2. A radical free CD compiled by Lambchop. 3. The definitive review of Desert Trip by Stephen Deusner, featuring Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Neil Young, Roger Waters and The Who. 4. Wyndham Wallace’s in-depth look at the new classical movement (or whatever we decide to call it)with Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Bryce Dessner, Ólafur Arnalds, Dustin O’Halloran etc. 5. Very fine pieces by John Robinson on C86 and Peter Watts on The Damned. Plus Julia Holter ,David Pajo, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Norah Jones and, as ever, much more.

Moving on this week’s playlist: much love for these Merl Saunders & Jerry Garcia jams, and the new CRB EP, among the new arrivals. Also please check out the footage of Pharaoh Sanders from 1982, and Kaia Kater, a new name to me, who sounds great…
