The 35th Uncut Playlist Of 2010

As some of you guessed last week, Neil Young’s exceptional “Le Noise” was one of the mystery records in Playlist 34. I’ve now got clearance to blog about it so, all being well, I’ll post something here tomorrow, deadlines permitting. As you can see, “Le Noise” isn’t the only auspicious arrival this week.

But a quick heads-up on two less heralded records. Koen Holtkamp is half of Mountains, and his solo effort is very much in the same airspace, while the new Steve Gunn album, in the company of freeish drummer John Truscinski, is a Sandy Bullish killer. More on both of these as soon as I get a chance. I suppose we should probably have a conversation about Sufjan Stevens at some point, too?
