The 32nd Uncut Playlist Of 2014

The 32nd Uncut Playlist Of 2014
John Mulvey

Such has been the drooling media focus on Kate Bush this week, it might be tough to imagine British music journalists listening to anything else these past few days. I'm not, in fairness, exempt from the hysteria: here's my review of the second Before The Dawn show, in case you missed it (or avoided it) yesterday.

Still, though, life goes on. Special attention this week to the first tracks to emerge from the forthcoming Kevin Morby and Nathan Bowles albums. Bob Dylan pretty good, too…

The 43rd Uncut Playlist Of 2014

Very taken with Africa Express' version of "In C", by Terry Riley, this week. I have a few takes on the piece (50 years old this month, incidentally), the latest being one by Portishead's Adrian Utley from a couple of years back, though I still probably default to what I think is the original...
