A roundup of 14 tracks not previously featured here that have been getting the new music veins pumping in the last seven days. These tracks are the besttracks not already featured on the site in the last week that popped up on my radar and left an impression in the last week or have appeared elsewhere. The Best New Music Weekly playlist will be posted every Wednesday.

This week’s tracks include a new one from Austin’s Pure X, The xx’s Great Gatsy soundtrack song, Valentina and Bantum offering alternative takes on their songs ‘Gabriel’ and ‘Legion’ respectively, a track from former WU LYFers’ Los Porcos, Disclosure collaborator Sinead Harnett and new tracks from Azekel, Sea Pinks, Kelpe, Jamie Isaac, Nosaj Thing, Letherette, Thundercat and a song from Christopher Burman’s ambient soundtrack to a German car museum exhibit.

Consider me on board with whatever Valentina does in the near future. After her excellent contributions to Joe Goddard’s ‘Gabriel’ and Two Door Cinema Club’s ‘The World Is Watching’, her debut single ‘Wolves’ marked her solo material out with a vaporous orchestral track.

‘Ladders’ singles her out some more with its comfortably lush arrangement and yearning vocal and production by Esser.

It’s taken from the Wolves EP out at the end of April on Greco-Roman.

You may recognise Valentina’s voice from last year’s Two Door Cinema Club song The World is Watching or Joe Goddard’s 2011 club hit Gabriel. The Italian/English singer’s debut single on the Greco-Roman label, Wolves, marks the singer’s step into the spotlight with a slow-burning vaporous orchestral track.

Autre Ne Veut

‘Play by Play’ is a shimmering electro pop R&B track from Brooklyn’s Arthur Ashin that revels in its catharthic ’80s exalted chorus. The kind of song that could play on repeat for an hour and it’d still sound good. (album Anxiety now streaming)

Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard’s new solo single ‘Gabriel’ fits right into the British zeitgeist of uplifting electronic-pop while adapting Hot Chip’s dancefloor instincts to the song. The big magnet to this tune is Valentina, the female vocalist who’s soulful R&B style is something that Alexis Taylor could never truly replicate. Valentina is a member of the Greco-Roman collective (home to Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs) and the Gabriel EP (streamable below) is out on that label next week and on DFA in the US. Goddard will release another solo album next year.
