The 28th Uncut Playlist Of 2014

There's a song on this new Purling Hiss album, playing again now, that sounds more or less like "Debaser" played by Dinosaur Jr. Along with the intensely spirited debut by Mary Timony's Ex-Hex and a comp of the pre-Beachwood Sparks, Sebadoh-indebted Further, it feels a little like College Rock revisited week. Deep late '80s/early '90s vibes, good times etc.

Plenty of more meditative offerings here, including the best drone record I've heard in a while courtesy of Metabolismus (who feature Samara Lubelski), Labradford-like manoeuvres from a couple of that band's ex-members (Anjou), and Philip Corner's strong Morton Feldman-ish take on Satie. Tricky album's not bad, either…

The 35th Uncut Playlist Of 2014


Weird serendipities aplenty this week: versions of "O, Death" on two albums I downloaded one after another, by Mike & Cara Gangloff and Bessie Jones; dovetailing into Sea Island overlap between Jones and Loscil. It makes for a nice blurring between time and genre with, say, the Gangloffs...
