The Sixth Uncut Playlist Of 2013: hear Mikal Cronin, Retribution Gospel Choir, Jennie O, Library Of Sands, 3rd Eye Foundation…

An unintended consequence of the My Bloody Valentine release: plenty of plays this week for “Straight Outta Compton”, following directly after “m b v” in my iTunes library. As you can see, though, it’s been an amazing few days for new music, and consequently I’ve added plenty of links so you can hear Mikal Cronin, Library Of Sands (to recap: Naynay Shineywater from Brightblack Morning Light), Jennie O (produced by Jonathan Wilson), and Retribution Gospel Choir’s amazing “Seven” (featuring Nels Cline, and especially recommended to fans of “Psychedelic Pill”).

Also worth noting: Kurt Vile, Bitchin’ Bajas. And I’ve added a killer Third Eye Foundation track from 1996, so those of you unfamiliar with Matt Elliott’s music can see why that name’s been cropping up a fair bit with regard to “m b v”.

This fairly extraordinary week moves up another gear tonight with the start of Kraftwerk’s Tate Modern residency. I’m seeing “Trans Europe Express” on Friday, but your reports and reviews are, as ever, very welcome…
