What we've played today in the Uncut office

John Mulvey

Looks like I'm going to be resorting to a few playlists rather than full blogs this week. An exciting combination of deadlines and emergency dental work, and the distraction this afternoon of a man in a very good gorilla suit running around the office (blame NME) mean I haven't much time at the moment. But I'm still simultaneously working my way through the pile of new CDs that amassed while I was on vacation. Here, then, is what we've played thus far today:

1 The Everly Brothers - Roots
2 Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - Raising Sand
3 Various - Next month's free Uncut CD (we're keeping the contents classified for another week or two)
4 Citay - Little Kingdom
5 Six Organs Of Admittance - Shelter From The Ash
6 Arp - In Light
7 Various - El Barrio 2: Sounds From The Spanish Harlem Streets
8 Michael Hurley - Ancestral Swamp
9 Holy Fuck - LP
