The 27th Uncut Playlist Of 2013

The 27th Uncut Playlist Of 2013

No, unfortunately “Bright Phoebus” isn’t being reissued. But what prompted me to dig it out this week was the news of Bright Phoebus Revisited, a concert tour this autumn that promises the album recreated live by every Waterson they could find, along with various guests including Jarvis Cocker and Richard Hawley. The dates are London Barbican (11), Warwick Arts Centre (12), Liverpool Philharmonic Hall (14), Brighton Dome (15) and Bristol Colston Hall (16). Could be interesting: amazing record.

Some good new arrivals at the back end of this list, as you’ll see. Fuzz, in case you don’t know, are Ty Segall’s latest alternative manifestation. Also please note new ones by Tim Hecker and Tony Joe White, and the strong Mazzy Star track. I’ll let you know when I get the album…

The Fourth Uncut Playlist Of 2015

This week's big distraction has been what appears to be a crazy number of early Aphex Twin tracks accumulating on Soundcloud (I've added the link below). Among the new stuff, though, please try Bop English; the new solo project of James Petralli from White Denim.
