Apologies for the lack of playlists this past month; I’ve been recovering from a broken shoulder, so typing has been a bit tricky. On the mend now, so here is a roundup of everything newish I can remember playing over that time, with lots of strong entries: Neal Casal’s Circles Around The Sun jams used at the summer’s Dead reunion shows; the terrific Eleanor Friedberger album; new ones from Cian Nugent and Robert Stillman.

There are a couple of other things I’m not at liberty to reveal just yet, but see how these work for you – and maybe let me know what I might have missed. Thanks for your patience…
