The top 10 tracks of the week


10 songs you should hear right now…

1. Katharine Philippa – ‘Pawns’

From the absolutely stunning new EP from the Belfast composer/musician. I love the opening track ‘Hosanna’ but ‘Pawns’ with its abrasive industrial noise and piano tussle is a standout.

2. Lisa O’Neill – ‘Come Sit Sing’

It’s hard to pick a highlight from the Cavan lady’s stunning second album Same Cloth Or Not but ‘Come Sit Sing’ is one of its most affecting.

3. Four Tet – ‘Kool FM’ (Champion Mix)

A rip-roaring Modeselektor-style remix of one of the standouts from Beautiful Rewind.

4. Busta Rhymes featuring Q-Tip – ‘Thank You’

Old school feel-good rap jam from two legends from Busta’s Extinction Level Event 2. Kanye and Lil Wayne pop up too.

5. Warpaint – ‘Love Is To Die’

Warpaint are back with a new album in January. ‘Love Is To Die’ proves that not much has changed and that’s a good thing.

6. Marika Hackman – ‘Itchy Teeth’

From the new EP, Sugar Blind out December 9th from the English singer/songwriter, a followup to the lovely That Iron Taste album.

7. Deady – ‘Lightning & Thunder’

A doo-wop throwback from Cork soul singer Brian Deady. You’ll know he’s Irish by the way he says “my heart went splatter on the floor like a 99”.

8. Röyksopp – ‘Running To The Sea’ (Villa remix)

A disco rework of the Norwegian’s first single since 2011, which was a number one in their native Norway earlier this year.

9. CREEP – ‘Dim The Lights’ featuring Sia

An uplifting ethereal string-lead track to close out the long-coming debut album from CREEP.

10. Patrick Keller – ‘Put Out The Lights And Cry’

Weird and wonderful ghost pop from Mr Kelleher, ‘Put Out The Lights And Cry’ is a seven minute synth pop apparition of a song from one of Dublin’s most interesting (and also good) musicians.
