The Tenth MOJO Playlist Of 2018
Heaven and Earth copy.jpg

Lots new to sample this week, hopefully, among this list of MOJO stereo selections. Personal highlights, before we get to the action: the suitably hazy and understated return of Jon Hassell (intrigued to learn of his early connections with Can from Rob Young’s new book, incidentally); the Latinx twang of Chicago’s Dos Santos; silvery, Feelies-friendly jangles from the new Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever album; Phil Cook's gospel fervor; Janelle Monáe, of course; and maybe best of all, the second album from new jazz titan, Kamasi Washington.
