The 40th Uncut Playlist Of 2017

35 key selections from the Uncut stereo

Trending Now

These playlists seem to get longer each week, but lots worthwhile here, as ever: Frazey Ford’s finally recorded her D’Angelo cover; Orpheo McCord (who you might remember drumming for Fool’s Gold and, briefly, The Fall) has made a sweet ambient record with Scott Hirsch from Hiss Golden Messenger; there’s a remix project based on Anderson Paak’s Nxworries album; No Age are back; Awanto 3 is Dutch techno that we discovered this week is Richard Dawson’s favourite album of 2017; the slightly goth Fever Ray album is out today, and worth a listen (vid embedded below is pretty NSFW by the way); the very fine Stick In The Wheel; Prins Thomas’ new album, which is terrific, though we’re currently struggling to spot the alleged Teenage Fanclub and Pat Metheny references; oh, and the Shields/Eno hook-up actually works brilliantly. See what you think…
