Mura Masa – ‘Nuggets’ feat. bonzai

After last Friday’s Damon Albarn and Christine & The Queens drops, Mura Masa returns to his old friend, the Irish/London vocalist and makes his best song in a while thanks to a rubbery bassline and Bonzai’s convicted delivery.


2.

SZA – ‘Love Galore’

I spent a lot of time writing about SZA this week and this song keeps coming back to my ears.


3.

Felix Pallas – ‘Similarities’

A Belgian band who are our blog friend Disco Naivete’s first release as a label, ‘Similarities’ is a sheenful dance-pop track rooted in full-band dynamics that reaches unexpected peaks.


4.

The Academic – ‘Bear Claws’

The Mullingar band have re-recorded the song that turned everyone’s heads a few years back. This tighter version of the singalong indie-pop song is tighter and comes from the band’s debut album to come.


5.

Shay Lia – What’s Your Problem?

Kaytranada on the beat and Shay Lia on the R&B low-end flow.


6.

Skepta – ‘Hypocrisy’

“They try to disrespect me / When they’re online especially /But everything cool when they check me / Because I’m so cool and deadly / See, I had to realise slowly / That nobody actually knows me/ Yeah, man, I’ve got fifteen different iPhones / But I am so not phoney.” Skepta, true to form. He declined some amazing dinners and an MBE apparently.


7.

Shabazz Palaces – ‘When Cats Claw’

Extraterrestial alt-rap group Shabazz Palaces will release two albums next Friday : Quazarz: Born on a Gangster Star and Quazarz vs The Jealous Machines but until that overload arrives drink in ‘When Cats Claw’, a echo chambering track.


8.

Four Tet – Two Thousand And Seventeen’

Kieran Hebden returns to the relative calm of his early work with this minimally-pitched track that lets a string instrument become the main focus.
