The 34th Uncut Playlist Of 2012

A couple of notable absences here, I guess, since there remains no sign of Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s “Psychedelic Pill” (as we’re currently assuming it’s called), and only the editor has heard Bob Dylan’s “Tempest”, in some kind of fortified panic room at the Sony offices.

A couple of notable absences here, I guess, since there remains no sign of Neil Young & Crazy Horse’s “Psychedelic Pill” (as we’re currently assuming it’s called), and only the editor has heard Bob Dylan’s “Tempest”, in some kind of fortified panic room at the Sony offices.

Allan has written an extensive review of “Tempest”, though, which you can find in the new issue of Uncut, in the shops on Friday and possibly arriving for UK subscribers today or tomorrow. Plenty more in there to hype, as ever (Nick Cave, Vivian Stanshall, Mike Nesmith, The Dubliners, John Paul Jones, Grandaddy, for a start), but I’m especially keen on Jon Dale’s meticulous and invaluable guide to Grateful Dead live albums.

Temptation resisted to spend the week digging into Jon’s Dead recommendations, here are the records we’ve actually played in the office over the past couple of days. Five I’m not so keen on, I think, but enduring love for the Cody ChesnuTT return, a belated understanding and appreciation of Dan Deacon, and a great new Lindstrøm album. The appearance of George Stavis, incidentally, is due to the Reviews Ed currently buying as many avant-garde banjo records as he can find on Ebay.
