The 23rd Uncut Playlist Of 2013

The 23rd Uncut Playlist Of 2013
John Mulvey

The week thus far fairly inevitably dominated by Neil Young & Crazy Horse (here’s my review of the O2 gig), but there are plenty of good new things here.

Dwelling on Neil Young a little longer, though, on various bits of the internet I’ve read a lot of criticism and disgruntlement about his approach on these UK dates, but I’ve not been contacted directly (on Twitter, Facebook, blog comments, email) from anyone who was unhappy with the setlist/feedback jams/etc. I’d be really interested to hear an alternative view, if you’d like to get in touch…

Stooges tomorrow night, anyhow. In the meantime, please check out the Chris Forsyth tracks (especially if you've been digging Steve Gunn). The Jon Hopkins album sounds really nice this morning, too.

The 46th (And Last) Playlist Of 2014

Sorry I didn't manage to post a playlist last week; a combination of germs, deadlines and various other professional/seasonal distractions meant that I ran out of time.

Here, though, is our last office list of 2014, with lots of strong new entries. A few highlights...
