1. Run The Jewels – ‘Oh My Darling Don’t Cry’

runthejewels

El-P and Killer Mike tease their hefty hip-hop followup album RTJ2 with ‘Oh My Darling Don’t Cry’, a bass-booming track which rather than utilising vinyl cutups and effects features the voice artist Michael Winslow doing it for them.

Even better? A Christmas Fucking Miracle. They are playing Playing Opium Rooms December 21st. Tickets on sale now.

1. The 2 Bears – ‘Not This Time’

2bears
With every release Joe Goddard shows he has the smarts but thus far, his project with Raf Rundell was either great or a bit cheesy as it hopped from genre to genre in search of something elusive. But the new single ‘Not This Time’, from the second album The Night Is Young, out October 13th is some considerable, repeatable pop smarts. The pair are also playing Playing Opium Rooms on Sunday November 1st.
