The 25th Uncut New Music Playlist of 2019

Aoife Nessa Frances, Beck, Craven Faults and more

Last one of the year, then, and my last one for Uncut, since I’ll be leaving the magazine today. Housekeeping: I’ve updated my 2017 albums list with a few late discoveries; and a few more new 2018 things have snuck in here, especially the next Prana Crafter tape. Also my final Uncut will be on sale mid-January, and I can promise that those of you who’ve stuck with this playlist may well be interested in the free CD Tom’s compiled to go with it; I’m very proud of it, as I have been of most things we’ve done in my time here.

Thanks for all your support over such a long time, and all my best wishes for the season. You can probably guess how this is going to end…
