Happy New Year to all Uncut readers! Time to finally put the 2010s behind us and begin looking ahead to a new decade – musically, at least, there’s plenty of cause for optimism. Kicking off 2020 in style, there’s a new, Kate-Bush-powered issue of Uncut in the shops tomorrow (Thursday 16) – you can read much more about that here – so we thought we’d accompany that with a bumper new playlist, featuring plenty of the music we enthuse about in the issue.

You can hear the latest singles from Tame Impala, Frazey Ford, Shopping and UK jazz prodigy Moses Boyd, all of whom are interviewed in the new mag; there’s a stunning reinterpretation of a Gil Scott-Heron number by fast-rising Chicago drummer/producer Makaya McCraven; St Vincent has remixed Beck, Ty Segall has buddied up with Lightning Bolt’s Brian Chippendale as Wasted Shirt, and Flaming Lips have merged with LA rockers Deap Vally; there are intriguing comebacks from Maria McKee, US Girls and Nigel Godrich’s Ultraísta; plus some heady deep synth stuff from LA Takedown and Waclaw Zimpel. Go on, treat yourself…
