The Second Uncut Playlist Of 2016

Hear/read about the best new and old music of the week, direct from Uncut

Trending Now

I’m trying to get back into the rhythm of compiling these lists every week. Lots new to check out again here: can I particularly flag up Tim Hecker, The Dead Tongues – another player from that fruitful North Carolina scene (there are blood ties with Phil Cook’s band), King, the less-heralded new Iggy record (the one where he recites Walt Whitman over Alva Noto and Tarwater electronica) and the amazing Bitchin Bajas/Will Oldham hook-up? Hopefully I’ll have something to play from that soon.
Strong week for reissues too, with the Träd, Gräs Och Stenar box, Third Man’s Primeval Greek Village Music comp, and the Gimmer Nicholson discovery (originally slated to be the first album on Ardent) in particular. More as I find out…
