The Second Uncut Playlist Of 2010

Pricktease time here, I’m afraid. A truly amazing album arrived this week which I’m absolutely certain will be among my favourites of 2010, but due to various covert record company operations and so on, I’m not at liberty to reveal what it is just yet. Negotiations continue: I’ll write more – lots more – as soon as I can. Hold off on trying to post speculation, if you can, so I can keep this under wraps for a few more days.

Other notable additions this week, though, notably the second Wooden Shjips singles comp and the Bill Fay double CD containing his first new music in 30 years. A couple more things: some interesting comments on the Ali & Toumani/Tamikrest blog I posted on Friday, especially from Tamikrest’s producer, Chris Eckman from The Walkabouts/Dirtmusic. And for the select few who were anticipating the Natural Snow Buildings blog I promised a while back, that seems to have turned into my next Wild Mercury Sound column for the mag. Promises, promises…
