The Sixth Uncut Playlist Of 2014

The Sixth Uncut Playlist Of 2014
John Mulvey

Another one of the annoying redacted albums uncovered this week, in the shape of Avey Tare’s Slasher Flicks, on the first few listens possibly superior to the last Animal Collective set. I wish you could hear more of Angel Deradoorian on it, though: her “Mind Raft” EP from a few years back is maybe my favourite release from the extended Dirty Projectors collective.

Other notes. Chain & The Gang as will be obvious, are fronted by the irrepressible Ian Svenonius, there’s a new Woods track to check out, the Slint box features a version of “Cortez The Killer”, and Terry Waldo’s album is actually new. Strange times.
