The Third Uncut Playlist Of 2012

The Third Uncut Playlist Of 2012
John Mulvey

Just been opening this morning’s post, and there are at least a couple of new albums in there that I’ll be playing imminently, from Grimes and the Carolina Chocolate Drops (not two artists who are immediately obvious bedfellows, for sure).

In the meantime, the Nuojuva record is providing a gentle start to a day of rain, proofreading and cricket-based irritation. Let me know how the new website design is bedding in, if you get a chance. One thing that’s changed since our launch last week is that you can now see the links in my copy: the Ranaldo, Holter and Endless Boogie links lead to my blogs on those records. Hang around, if you can.

1 Gunn-Truscinski Duo – Ocean Parkway (Three-Lobed)

2 Lee Ranaldo – Between The Times And The Tides (Matador)

3 Leonard Cohen – Old Ideas (Columbia)

4 Julia Holter – Ekstasis (RVNG INTL)

5 Michael Kiwanuka – Home Again (Polydor)

6 Chris Forsyth/Koen Holtkamp – Early Astral (Blackest Rainbow)

7 Grinderman – Grinderman 2 RMX (Mute)

8 Megafaun – Megafaun (Crammed Discs)

9 Endless Boogie – Twenty Minute Jam Getting Out Of The City (Boo-Hooray!)

10 Spoek Mathambo – Father Creeper (Sub Pop)

11 Steve Moore/Majeure – Brainstorm (Temporary Residence)

12 Andrew Bird – Break It Yourself (Bella Union)

13 Luke Roberts – The Iron Gates At Throop And Newport (Thrill Jockey)

14 WhoMadeWho – Brighter (Kompakt)

15 Ceremony – Zoo (Matador)

16 The 2 Bears – Be Strong (Southern Fried)

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...
