The 21st Uncut Playlist Of 2013

The 21st Uncut Playlist Of 2013
John Mulvey

Back from a week’s holiday, so plenty of new things among this 21st office playlist, with lots of the best tracks - from Cian Nugent, Lace Curtain, Houndstooth and The Cairo Gang, among others – embedded. A hairy teaser for Crazy Horse’s imminent UK dates, too, and a serendipitous reissue for Samuel Purdey’s luxe late ‘90s evocation of Steely Dan and the Doobies; curious Daft Punk fans might be advised to check out “Only When I’m With You”, especially.

Word of warning, though; one of those weeks when not everything here comes so enthusiastically endorsed.

Editor's Letter

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.

It's the first time that Drake has appeared on our cover,...
