The 11th Uncut Playlist Of 2013: LOTS to play this week

The 11th Uncut Playlist Of 2013: LOTS to play this week
John Mulvey

The distraction of a Laura Marling blog yesterday has had the knock-on effect of making this week’s playlist longer than usual: 27 tracks/albums in all.

One of those weeks, too, where it feels necessary to add the caveat that this is a collection of music that I’ve listened to, not that I necessarily endorse. Pick your way carefully through some stretches of this list, then, but try and have a listen to at least the first Justin Timberlake track (streaming at iTunes) and Prince Rupert’s Drops at Bandcamp, among other things. Also this Dennis Johnson is very much worth checking out; an epic piano piece from the very early days of minimalism.

Editor's Letter

The 46th (And Last) Playlist Of 2014

Sorry I didn't manage to post a playlist last week; a combination of germs, deadlines and various other professional/seasonal distractions meant that I ran out of time.

Here, though, is our last office list of 2014, with lots of strong new entries. A few highlights...
