The 41st Uncut Playlist Of 2012

The 41st Uncut Playlist Of 2012
John Mulvey

Pretty busy trying to finish an issue here, but as usual, Neil Young is providing a distraction. Today there’s an opportunity to see why we’ve been making such a fuss about “Psychedelic Pill”: a video for the 16-odd minute “Ramada Inn”…

Also some way into “Waging Heavy Peace”. This sentence on page 114 seems to sum it up thus far - “Point is, there were a lot of cars” – but if you’re further on than me, please let me know what you think.

As for the playlist this week, a belated and wholehearted discovery of Goat here in the office, a fine new Michael Chapman venture, a lot of Godspeed’s extraordinary return, plus Mark Kozelek US TV debut, which is well worth a look…

Editor's Letter

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.
