Wild Mercury Sound

A playlist, plus forthcoming attractions

John Mulvey

Not much time to post today, so here's an office playlist for your delectation. Thanks to everyone who posted their playlists last week - we can definitely do that again here if you're in the mood. I should also mention a few things I'll try and blog about before Christmas, if only in a fairly unsavoury attempt to book some return visits from you over the next couple of weeks.

I have racked up here new albums by Nick Cave, Earth, Growing, Dawn Landes, Cass McCombs, Bon Iver and Thistletown, off the top of my head. More pressingly, I'll be at the Led Zeppelin show next Monday night, and blogging as quickly as possible straight after. Farah will be filing news stories from the O2 Arena as the night progresses, so stick with us through the evening.

Adverts over, sorry. Here's the playlist (Just two I'm underwhelmed by in this 11):

1 Blur - Park Life (Food)

2 Bonnie 'Prince' Billy - Ask Forgiveness (Domino)

3 Dory Previn - The Art Of Dory Previn (Zonophone)

4 Growing - Lateral (The Social Registry)

5 Supergrass - Diamond Hoo Ha Man (Parlophone)

6 Malcolm Middleton - Sleight Of Heart (Full Time Hobby)

7 Kelley Stoltz - Circular Sounds (Sub Pop)

8 Dawn Landes - Bodyguard (Fargo)

9 The Cave Singers - Invitation Songs (Matador)

10 Girl Talk - Night Ripper (Illegal Art)

11 Bob Mould - District Line (Beggars Banquet)


Editor's Letter

The 3rd Uncut Playlist Of 2015

Still at that stage of the year where I nearly type 2014 every time instead of 2015, but time moves on - swifter, perhaps, than Bjork for one would've liked this week, given how an unauthorised leak forced the release of "Vulnicura" a couple of months ahead of schedule.
