The 38th Uncut Playlist Of 2016

25 things on repeat in the new Uncut office

Trending Now

A first playlist from our new subterranean lair, and some new arrivals to check out. Wish I had a link to any of the Chris Abrahams album – maybe I’ll see one or two at the Necks Café Oto show next week. Please find, though… an amazing hour of 75 Dollar Bill live in Paris last week; the return of Mark Eitzel, grandly produced this time out by Bernard Butler; something new by Bing & Ruth, which follows on neatly from Wyndham’s piece about the whole New Classical/Post-Classic in the current issue of Uncut; Visible Cloaks!; and a step up from Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, recommended for all Feelies fans, among others.

Also Robert Forster’s memoir, Grant And I, is wonderful, and I dearly hope it finds a UK publisher sometime soon.
