The Sixth Uncut Playlist Of 2011

Yet another period of quietness to apologise for, though I do have the excuse this week of having been away working in the States. More about that later, and, hopefully, some more proper blogs next week. Maybe we should start with Radiohead and “King Of Limbs”, do you think?

Plenty to get your teeth into on this playlist, as you can see: About Group, if you didn’t know, features Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip) mixing it with Charles Hayward (This Heat) and John Coxon (Spring Heel Jack), among other people. In common with a lot of things here, their album isn’t out for a couple of months at least, which is one good reason why, unfortunately, it’d be hard for us to compile the sort of Spotify playlists that a few of you have been requesting

I can totally recommend, though, that you head over to Wolfgang’s Vault, where you can listen to the sensational Terry Riley concert listed below in its entirety, right down to the musicians being introduced.

1. Zomes – Earth Grid (Thrill Jockey)

2. The Strokes – Under Cover Of Darkness (Rough Trade)

3. Moon Duo – Mazes (Souterrain Transmissions)

4. Cat’s Eyes – Cat’s Eyes (Polydor)

5. The Dictators – Manifest Destiny/Blood Brothers (Floating World)

6. Pantha Du Prince – XI Versions Of Black Noise (Rough Trade)

7. Terry Riley – Great American Music Hall 4/23/1983 (Wolfgang’s Vault)

8. Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues (Bella Union)

9. Trembling Bells – The Constant Pageant (Honest Jon’s)

10. EMA – Past Life Martyred Saints (Souterrain Transmissions)

11. Mickey Newbury – An American Trilogy (Sampler) (Saint Cecelia Knows/Mountain Retreat)

12 About Group – Start And Complete (Domino)
