The 24th Uncut Playlist Of 2014

Lots to dig into this week, not least a song to sample from the Hiss Golden Messenger album that I’ve been alluding to for so long. Strong Ronnie Lane vibes there, perhaps. Among some biggish new entries here, some lesser known names to check out, too: Jennifer Castle; 75 Dollar Bill’s weird adaptation of desert blues; the new Blonde Redhead album that increasingly feels like their strongest in an age; and Hurray For The Riff Raff, magnificent on Letterman.

Lot of good techno and electronica, too: not quite sure why that is at the moment. I’ll leave you to meditate on whether a reggae cover of “Purple Rain” in its entirety and featuring, among others, Ali Campbell and the drummer from Fun Lovin’ Criminals, is something to actively seek out…
