The 47th Uncut Playlist Of 2013

The 47th Uncut Playlist Of 2013
John Mulvey

The last playlist of 2013, I think, and – as you’ll see – a bunch of faithful retainers slipping back in with 2014 releases. Not sure I can believe I’m ending the year with an embedded video of Tears For Fears covering Animal Collective, but there you go.

There should be one more blog to come, actually, if I have a chance to write a review of tonight’s Waterboys gig. If anyone’s seen them on this “Fisherman’s Blues” tour and can report back today, I’d be very interested to hear from you.

In the meantime, all the best for the solstice and so on. Sending you my love, and a bang on the ear…

The 46th (And Last) Playlist Of 2014

Sorry I didn't manage to post a playlist last week; a combination of germs, deadlines and various other professional/seasonal distractions meant that I ran out of time.

Here, though, is our last office list of 2014, with lots of strong new entries. A few highlights...
