The 25th Uncut Playlist Of 2012

A serene beginning this morning, with a new Terry Riley album, “Aleph”. Over on my 40 Favourites Of 2012 Thus Far blog, however, things became a little less genteel yesterday, as you can see in the comments thread at the bottom of the chart.

A serene beginning this morning, with a new Terry Riley album, “Aleph”. Over on my 40 Favourites Of 2012 Thus Far blog, however, things became a little less genteel yesterday, as you can see in the comments thread at the bottom of the chart.

Please join in; the general discussion about this year’s releases, that is, rather than the irate trolling.

A mixed bag here in this week’s chart, but a few things worth explaining: the new Will Oldham is an EP of jauntily re-recorded old songs (including “I See A Darkness”) to coincide with Domino’s catalogue reissues. “Parsons’ Blues” is a single culled from the same sessions as Chasny’s forthcoming “Ascent”, with the reconstituted Comets On Fire on the team. Raajmahal is a really nice drifter, helmed by Pat Murano from NNCK that reminds me a little of a spacier Natural Snow Buildings. Some other entries, however, may be best left undiscussed…
