The 30th Uncut Playlist Of 2012

One terrible absence from this week’s playlist is, of course, Bob Dylan’s “Tempest”, which Allan heard a while back. If you haven’t read his preview yet, please check it out here. Some fairly lively discussion in the comments thread, too.

Plenty of goodness has actually made it into the office, mind, as you can see from this 20. Gold stars this week to some fine newcomers: the second Chris Robinson Brotherhood album of the summer; the first Michael Mayer artist album in eight years; a new Sun Araw track (follow the link); Caribou’s reinvention as Daphni; and maybe best of all, the first new Sebadoh music for some 13 years. Check out the EP at the link – “Keep The Boy Alive” is especially great, in the fine tradition of “Beauty Of The Ride” – and, as ever, let me know what you think. Thanks…
