The 20th Uncut Playlist Of 2014

The 20th Uncut Playlist Of 2014
John Mulvey

Emotional times, as this is Allan’s last day as editor of Uncut. Before we get down to that, though, here are the records we’ve been playing in the office this week.

There’s been a strong temptation to stick on Light In The Attic’s “Country Funk” comps pretty much non-stop. But please check out the Eno/Hyde track, even if you dismissed – as I did – the stuff that came out the other week. And also a belated discovery from five or six years ago, New Orleans’ Sundown Songs (https://myspace.com/sundownsongsnola/music/songs). Let me know, as ever, what you think.

D'Angelo's "Black Messiah": some first thoughts

When Thom Yorke sneaked out his new solo album a few months back, I managed to hold out for 66 hours before writing a review of "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes". Since waking up...
