The 45th Uncut Playlist Of 2012

The 45th Uncut Playlist Of 2012
John Mulvey

Quite tempting yesterday to play nothing but “Signed Sealed Delivered I’m Yours”, but here’s this week’s playlist, with quite a few new clips (Broadcast, Jessica Pratt, Hiss, Ty!), links and new entries.

Worth reiterating this week that the playlist isn’t ranked as such - number one is the first record I played, number 18 the last – and also that there’s music here I’m not crazy about: it’s all merely a diary of what we’ve listened to over the past couple of days. Hope that makes things clear.
