The 14th Uncut Playlist Of 2013

A fairly eclectic selection here this week, including some great proto-Takoma guitarists from the 1920s, chamber music reimaginings of the Kompakt back catalogue, that lost Romanian kosmische record you’ve always been looking for, and Prince making a stoner jam out of “Let’s Go Crazy” (which you can hear below, along with a bunch of interesting other stuff).

Also highlighted: Will Oldham’s belated reunion with Mick Turner; San Francisco’s Cool Ghouls (very much in the Allah-Las mould); Neal Casal and Adam MacDougall tackling the Dead; and, again, the fantastic new Oh Sees album (I’ll try and write a proper blog on that one later today). How are we all doing with The Knife drone, incidentally?
