The Uncut Playlist: new stuff!

John Mulvey

The post seems to have finally sorted itself out, so a decent load of new records arrived at Uncut yesterday, making today's playlist feel a good bit fresher than some of late. Regular readers should be reassured that, though, Radiohead is uncharacteristically absent, I'll probably put it on after this Butthole Surfers reissue has finished. Some things shouldn't change for a while yet, I guess.

1 Black Mountain - In The Future (Jagjaguwar)
2 Pylon - Gyrate Plus (DFA)
3 Caribou - She's The One (Hot Chip Remix) (City Slang)
4 American Music Club - The Golden Age (Cooking Vinyl)
5 The Verve - The Thaw Session (available from NME.com)
6 Labradford - Prazision (Kranky)
7 REM - REM Live (Warners)
8 Johann Johannsson - Englaborn (4AD)
9 Kaki King - . . .Until We Felt Red (Velour)
10 Elvis Perkins In Dearland - All The Night Without Love (XL)
11 Butthole Surfers - Piouhgd/Widowermaker! (Latino Bugger Veil)
