The 42nd Uncut Playlist Of 2017

This week’s rundown of the Uncut sound selections

Trending Now

What’s new? Strong new American Primitive action from Alexander, and a sort of Pennine variant on the theme from Jim Ghedi. A first track from the excellent Joan As Police Woman album. New singles from Imarhan, Ty Segall (yet another; they seem to be weekly at the moment) and, best of all, The Drive-By Truckers. HC McEntire, and a remix of Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith by Four Tet. And two albums by Beast that I think I’ve mentioned before, but haven’t provided links for; it’s a new project from Koen Holtkamp, from Mountains and those Chris Forsyth duo sets. Thor & Friends is in a similar kind of space (as is that Orpheo McCord album I’ve linked to a week or so back) and I’ll hopefully have something to play you from that asap. Whose streets? Our streets!
