The 25th Uncut Playlist Of 2008

First off, a brand new Brightblack Morning Light track, complete with visuals, has appeared, and it’s fantastic. The second Brightblack album – West Coast acid-folk-funk infused with gris-gris and a sort of horizontal, post-Spiritualized drone-funk, if any of that makes sense – was a huge hit here at Uncut during the ferociously sticky summer of 2006, and “Hologram Buffalo” is every bit as good.

Shineywater and Rachael Hughes recorded the album entirely via solar power in their adobe house in the mesas of New Mexico,” mentions the Matador site, as if we’d expect anything less. The album is reputedly on its way; I’ll report back.
