The 11th Uncut Playlist Of 2008

The playlist comes a bit earlier than usual this week, since we've been finishing the next issue today, and I haven't had a chance to write a proper preview. You probably should know, though, that the new Fall album on first listen appears to include, besides the usual murky paranoia, a faintly jazzy song about crows (and possibly "J-Loaded Brown", though we could have misheard that) called "Alton Towers".

The playlist comes a bit earlier than usual this week, since we’ve been finishing the next issue today, and I haven’t had a chance to write a proper preview. You probably should know, though, that the new Fall album on first listen appears to include, besides the usual murky paranoia, a faintly jazzy song about crows (and possibly “J-Loaded Brown”, though we could have misheard that) called “Alton Towers”.



Also: an incredibly long rant that chiefly involves Mark E Smith asserting, “I’m a 50-year-old man and I like it”, which somehow incorporates a deranged country breakdown; a track sung by Smith’s wife; a Groundhogs cover; and something vaguely resembling techno. After a fashion.

Anyway, here’s the list. Captain Memphis, incidentally, is Jim Dickinson. And I promise I’ll blog properly on the fantastic Bon Iver record any day now. . .
