The Fifth Uncut Playlist Of 2013: listen to MBV, The Knife, Arbouretum live...
John Mulvey

Today’s looking like it might shape up as Stephen Stills day: as I write, we’re on track 16 (“Helplessly Hoping”) of his new career boxset, with 60-odd more to come.

Not everything these past few days has been quite so appealing, and as a consequence this week’s playlist is one of those which comes with familiar warnings: while everything here has been listened to in the Uncut office, not all of it comes with a personal endorsement/recommendation. Tread carefully.

Especially positive vibes, though, for the MV & EE live set among this week’s new entries, and for the mysterious Number Four, which I’ll hopefully be able to talk about soon…

Editor's Letter

The return of The Aphex Twin, and Caustic Window


Last year, Warp Records embarked on a campaign for Boards Of Canada's "Tomorrow's Harvest" comeback that was notable for its obtuseness. Unmarked 12-inches were hidden in record stores, strings of numbers and inexplicable broadcasts were strewn enigmatically across the internet. At one point, I...
