The Third Uncut Playlist Of 2013: listen to Kurt Vile, Lubomyr Melnyk and the new Four Tet album
John Mulvey

Couple of plugs this morning before I get into the list. First off, a quick reminder that we have an exclusive stream of the whole new Arbouretum album, “Coming Out Of The Fog”; click this link. Well worth a listen, if you haven’t already.

Second, our latest Uncut Ultimate Music Guide is out tomorrow, I think, and is dedicated to The Beatles: Allan has written about it here.

Moving on, a really good bunch of arrivals this week. Please try and have a listen to the Lubomyr Melnyk and Kurt Vile clips, and of course to the whole Four Tet album. Other things worth picking out: Thurston Moore’s new band with Keith Wood, John Moloney and Samara Lubelski, Chelsea Light Moving; and this Hiss Golden Messenger album, “Haw”, which was waiting in my inbox this morning and is playing as I write. There have been worse starts to a day.

Editor's Letter

Robert Wyatt interviewed: "I'm not a born rebel..."

Today (January 28, 2015), social media reliably informs me that Robert Wyatt is 70, which seems a reasonable justification for reposting this long and, I hope, interesting transcript of an interview I did with him at home in Louth back in 2007, a little before the marvellous “Comicopera” was...
