The 13th Uncut Playlist Of 2014

The 13th Uncut Playlist Of 2014
John Mulvey

Some highlights to see/hear this week: Neil Young playing “Thrasher” for the first time (technically, second time I think) in 36 years; well over an hour of amazing Can footage from 1970; the new Jack White track; and Olga Bell’s album, which seems to suggest that I prefer the Dirty Projectors, or at least their spin-offs, when the singing is in Russian.

Couple of things that have been in previous playlists to flag up, too, namely the Jesse Sparhawk & Eric Carbonara and Lee Bains III albums which I’m increasingly taken with. As ever, have a listen and let me know what you think, please.
