The 16th Uncut Playlist Of 2012
John Mulvey

Business somewhat overshadowed this morning by the awful news about Levon Helm. Over the past couple of days though, these are the records we’ve been playing in the Uncut office.

Special mention this week to the Neneh Cherry/Thing collaboration, and to the two new releases on Testoster Tunes. Have a listen to ”Sunshine No Shoes” by Spacin’ here if you have a moment: rapidly becoming addicted to this one.

Editor's Letter

The 43rd Uncut Playlist Of 2014

Very taken with Africa Express' version of "In C", by Terry Riley, this week. I have a few takes on the piece (50 years old this month, incidentally), the latest being one by Portishead's Adrian Utley from a couple of years back, though I still probably default to what I think is the original...
