The 26th Uncut Playlist Of 2013

The 26th Uncut Playlist Of 2013
John Mulvey

A couple of days late this week, thanks to an epic proofreading job on the next Uncut Ultimate Music Guide; this one’s on the subject of Depeche Mode, and will be in UK shops on the last day of July.

These are the records that have kept me going, anyhow. Strong new entries here from Ultramarine (their first in 15 years), Desert Heat (that’s Steve Gunn, John Truscinski and Cian Nugent, so a few of you who come here regularly will be justifiably hyped), Roy Harper, Chris Thile (playing Bach), Adrian Utley (doing Terry Riley), Matt White (remixed by Hot Chip, mostly successfully), Spacin and Arbouretum (covering four songs by our editor’s favourite, Gordon Lightfoot). Dig in…

The 35th Uncut Playlist Of 2014


Weird serendipities aplenty this week: versions of "O, Death" on two albums I downloaded one after another, by Mike & Cara Gangloff and Bessie Jones; dovetailing into Sea Island overlap between Jones and Loscil. It makes for a nice blurring between time and genre with, say, the Gangloffs...
