A message that one of the Uncut team, Bud Scoppa, had filed his Top 25 tracks of the last six months inspired me this morning to do something similar.
I can’t manage Bud’s diligence in pinpointing individual tracks, and yet again I’ve bottled out of putting these 30 albums into anything other than alphabetical order. But a pretty healthy list, I think.
All January to June 2009 actual releases, I think (Yeah I know Raphael Saadiq camer out last year in the US, but I’m working haphazardly to UK schedules). Have a look, then let me know your own picks. If I get enough, I’ll try and mash them all into some kind of crypto-comprehensive Wild Mercury Sound chart.
