The 12th Uncut Playlist Of 2012

The 12th Uncut Playlist Of 2012
John Mulvey

Back in the office after a day off, but this is more or less what we played earlier in the week. First up this morning is the new Hot Chip album, which makes for a very good start to the day.

Other stuff here worth pointing up: Toy; the revelation of “Dr Dee”; a good half of Spain’s return; the redoubtable Cornershop; The Beachwood Sparks; and of course Jack White’s “Blunderbuss”. My interview with White is the cover story of the next Uncut, which should be arriving any day now. Please, as ever, let me know what you think.

In the meantime, my colleague John Robinson has just set up a great hashtag on his twitter account: #lowkeyiwasthere, to commemorate ten years since LCD Soundsystem release “Losing My Edge”. What minor moments of rock history did you witness? Let us know @JohnRMulvey and @johnrobinson101

The Fourth Uncut Playlist Of 2015

This week's big distraction has been what appears to be a crazy number of early Aphex Twin tracks accumulating on Soundcloud (I've added the link below). Among the new stuff, though, please try Bop English; the new solo project of James Petralli from White Denim.
