The 22nd Uncut Playlist Of 2013

The 22nd Uncut Playlist Of 2013
John Mulvey

One of our longer playlists this week and, I think, the one with more embedded music than I’ve ever posted before: you can listen to 12 out of 25 entries here, if I’ve counted right…

As you’ll see, too, a good haul of new stuff, with special emphasis on Dawn Of Midi and Hans Chew, and that tantalising Omar Souleyman/Four Tet clip.

In other news, the forthcoming “Tropicalia” documentary is excellent (I am researching/reviewing, hence the appearance of one of my favourite Veloso albums below); Julian Cope has joined Twitter (@HeadHeritage); Comets On Fire have reformed; I’ve posted a list of my 67 favourite albums of 2013 thus far (add your own, please!); we listened to ALL FIVE CDs of the “Scared To Get Happy” Indie Pop compilation and discovered that it probably doesn’t get worse than “Dry The Rain” by The Rain; and we also learned that Rick Wakeman is managed by Roger DeCourcey. Interesting week.
