The 14th Uncut Playlist Of 2012
John Mulvey

After last week’s notable arrival of Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s “Americana”, Playlist 14 is somewhat sketchier. Harder than usual for me to get behind a fair bit of this list, as a consequence – though as you can see, there’s still at least one very interesting new entry…

Also, following some digressive talk about drum solos at www.twitter.com/JohnRMulvey yesterday, an amazing track by The Sweet, of all people, was flushed out. Have a look at the link below, if you have a spare eight minutes.

2 Can – The Lost Tapes (Sampler) (Mute)

3 My Bloody Valentine – Isn’t Anything (Sony)

4 Van Dyke Parks – Discover America (Bella Union)

5 Dirty Projectors – Swing Lo Magellan (Domino)

6 Garbage – Not Your Kind Of People (Stunvolume)

7 King Tuff – King Tuff (Sub Pop)

Inside the new Uncut...

Vile day here in London, improved to some degree I'd hope by the arrival in UK shops of the new edition of Uncut. It has Nick Drake on the cover, as you probably know if you're a subscriber and your copy arrived over the weekend.
