The 39th Uncut Playlist Of 2009

“Uncut never ceases to find ways to analyze music by dumping on anything American,” notes a correspondent on the still-entertaining Bob Dylan Christmas thread, which isn’t one of the more typical criticisms we hear levelled at the magazine. He also accuses me of using the word “Americana” “as if it’s a swear”. Wow.

Moving on, anyhow, the number of new things getting through to us has been severely depleted due to the postal strike (though I suppose the end-of-year release lull may have something to do with it, too). A record that’s really growing on me is the Glass Rock one on Ecstatic Peace!, which I’ll try and write about before the end of the week. Any good links/recommendations to keep us going, please let me know.
