Slightly later than I’d like, but welcome to our first playlist of 2023. I guess one advantage to having this a little delayed is there’s more to include – so hopefully you’ll find plenty of new music to your tastes. You’ll notice that I’ve included two tracks by Brown Spirits, a trio from Australia who are channeling Can and Hawkwind vibes. So far, they’re released two rare-as-hens-teeth 7″s on Soul Jazz. I gather there’s an album coming, so I’ll let you know more on that as and when.
Otherwise, it’s a welcome return to the playlist for Elijah McLaughlin Ensemble and North Americans back – we’ve previewed new tracks from both of them on this site recently. I’ve been playing both of their new albums for a while and they provided plenty of spiritual sustenance during a particularly long and wearying January. I’ve also included Kassi Valazza‘s “Watching Planes Go By”, which some of you may recognise from our current Sounds Of The New West Volume 6 covermount – she’s terrific, in a Paisley Underground meets Jefferson Airplane way, and you can be sure to read more about her very soon in Uncut.
Lots of other great stuff besides – Sam Burton, Trees Speak, Steve Gunn & David Moore, so without further do: dig in!
