The Fourth Uncut Playlist Of 2014

Strong haul of rad gumbo here, as we’ve taken to saying. Never thought I’d want to hear another Hold Steady album after the last one, but “Teeth Dreams” pretty much reaffirmed the faith. And if you’re that way inclined, I can recommend the new Men album, too; their best, I think.

Strong haul of rad gumbo here, as we’ve taken to saying. Never thought I’d want to hear another Hold Steady album after the last one, but “Teeth Dreams” pretty much reaffirmed the faith. And if you’re that way inclined, I can recommend the new Men album, too; their best, I think.

Then there are the deep new Woods jams, and the small matter of the firs Afghan Whigs album in 16 years, to be discussed somewhere further down the line. This amazing Holly Herndon single. And three, maybe four, things I didn’t really like at all. Not bad, really.

As is the new issue of Uncut, due any day now. The Ramones are on the cover, and I can especially recommend the feature on great American punk records that goes with it. Full details here.
