Dodgy list last week, really good one this. A few things to flag up, not least the Jimmy Page “Lucifer Rising” soundtrack which has been distracting us from finishing the issue this morning.

The Chris Robinson is, at this point, one of my favourite records of the year so far and, somewhat differently, the Dirty Projectors one is bedding in pretty well. The Brightblack Morning Light release is an online EP of very deep live ambient jams from a band that have in various ways meant more to me than almost any other this past decade.

Glacial, I should say, is a new collaboration between Lee Ranaldo (very much back in free space after the Matador songs album), Tony Buck from The Necks and an avant-garde bagpiper, David Watson. Heavy Blanket is a new instrumental power trio fronted by J Mascis in fierce Hendrix form. Kandodo is Simon Price from The Heads, making kind of Stoogesy chill-out drones.

Let me know what you’re playing, by the way. Traffic has been much busier on uncut.c.o.uk this year, but these threads have generally been quieter. Is this a Facebook Comments issue for some of you?
