The Uncut Playlist

John Mulvey

An office playlist today, since I've been putting the finishing touches to the next issue of Uncut and writing another - more coherent, hopefully - review of Led Zeppelin for the mag. John Robinson, our Reviews Ed, has mainly been at the controls this afternoon, running through a few new releases and currently dusting down The Beastie Boys' "Check Your Head", which is fine by me. Neon Neon, incidentally, is yet another new album from Gruff Rhys, this time a synthpop/hip hop/R&B concept album about John DeLorean, in collaboration with Boom Bip, a kind of substitute Danger Mouse. Sounds pretty good, anyway.

1. Air - Talkie Walkie (Gareth's iPod)

2. Toumani Diabate - The Mande Variations (World Circuit)

3. The Cave Singers - Invitation Songs (Matador)

4. Vetiver - Remixes (Fat Cat)
