Wild Mercury Sound

The Fifth Uncut Playlist Of 2014

The Fifth Uncut Playlist Of 2014
John Mulvey

This week’s excuse for briskness is I have a longish review of Real Estate to write for the mag, but some good news in here: not least the appearance of a mighty stash of Fela Kuti albums on Bandcamp and some predictably weird mixtapes, compiled by John Fahey, fetching up on Soundcloud.

Worth noting, too, that Bernard Butler and Jackie McKeown’s new Trans EP is all on Youtube, and, perhaps best of all, that the Ryley Walker album is imminent. Oh, and while I don’t usually include links to tracks on the playlist that I’m not keen on, the a cappella death metal below is a treat, of sorts.
