The 41st Uncut Playlist Of 2013

The 41st Uncut Playlist Of 2013
John Mulvey

In haste again this week, but various delays in posting this have at least meant that the playlist has kept growing: 32 entries, with seven interesting things to listen to, including Neil Young and a couple of strong new artists, the pretty psych Morgan Delt and Matt Kivel, whose album reminds me a bit of the first one by Bon Iver.

Also please check the gamelan jam from an agglomeration of Pelt, Part Wild Horses Mane On Both Sides and Dead C members. And if you were in any way diverted by my Top 50 favourite albums chart (compiled for the NME poll) a few weeks back, I’ve dug out the 131 record-strong longlist that I worked from and posted it on the blog: You can see my Top 131 albums here.

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.
