The 42nd Uncut Playlist Of 2013

The 42nd Uncut Playlist Of 2013
John Mulvey

Apologies for the frustrating gaps that appear in this week’s playlist. A lot of 2014 releases arriving in the office now, some of which haven’t been officially announced. As a consequence I have to keep their identities suppressed for the time being; I’ll try and fill in the missing words once these albums are formally unveiled.

In the meantime, another plug for the Morgan Delt record; a gentle suggestion you watch Springsteen playing my favourite Springsteen song; a reminder that the brilliant Cian Nugent album I’ve been hyping for months is now in the shops; and a warm welcome to the new Tinariwen and Stephen Malkmus LPs. This is what the latter has to say about “Wig Out At Jagbags”, an album title I can’t imagine I’ll ever tire of reading:

“‘Wig Out At Jagbags’ is inspired by Cologne, Germany, Mark Von Schlegel, Rosemarie Trockel, Von Sparr and Jan Lankisch, Can and Gas; Stephen Malkums imagined Weezer/Chili Peppers, Sic Alps, UVA in the late ‘80s, NYRB, Aroma Charlottenburg, inactivity, Jamming, Indie guys trying to sound Memphis, Flipper, Pete Townshend, Pavement, The Joggers, The NBA and home life in the 2010s...”

The 3rd Uncut Playlist Of 2015

Still at that stage of the year where I nearly type 2014 every time instead of 2015, but time moves on - swifter, perhaps, than Bjork for one would've liked this week, given how an unauthorised leak forced the release of "Vulnicura" a couple of months ahead of schedule.
