The fourth MOJO playlist of 2018

The new MOJO is out tomorrow: Neil Young’s on the cover, and you can find full details here . Please also bear in mind that you can order the new MOJO direct from us

In the meantime, here’s this week’s selection of new highlights from the MOJO stereo. Personal highlights: new Third Eye Foundation; French kosmische (is that a thing?) from Egyptology; Courtney Barnett, of course; Eleanor Freidberger; a new jam from Irish guitar outlier Cian Nugent; a reissue of one of my favourite proto-punk records of the early ‘70s, by Ontario’s Simply Saucer; and maybe best of all, the wild and deep folk of Sarah Louise.
