The top 10 tracks of the week

OK it’s been a few weeks due to me being away so there’s some songs that are a few weeks old in here.

Tracks of the Week playlist

1. Ships – ‘Space Inside’

It’s their biggest track yet and one of my favourite songs of any country in the last while. It’s huge, stonking and sophisticated classic pop: squelched electro bass, radiant synths, disco production and McGrath’s classic eighties pop chorus propped by Cullen’s sage contrasting verses. It’s catchy and endlessly listenable – it’s been on my rotation constantly since last August and it’s brilliance hasn’t diminished.

2. Sylvan Esso – ‘Coffee’

‘Coffee’ is the first single from an LP from one of Mountain Man & Megafaun. It’s a bubbly twinkling beat pop song. while ‘Play It Right’, that aforementioned song is pure happy weird-pop music.

3. Juce – ‘Call You Out’

A soulful sunshine pop jam from the London girl trio.

4. Fight Like Apes – ‘Crouching Bees’

Fine return for the band on their new EP Whigfield Sextape.

5. Krystal Klear – ‘Dance 7FS’

Another dancefloor weapon from the Manchester-based producer’s own label.

6. Floating Points – ‘King Bromeliad’

A squelch-funk boogie from a new 12″ forthcoming on Eglo Records.

7. Ben Khan – ‘Youth’

Upbeat Jai-Paulesque R&B soul pop from a London producer who has got lots of recogition of late. ‘Youth’ is the first single off his 1992 EP out in May.

8. Rhodes – ‘Your Soul’

For his new track, ‘Your Soul’, Rhodes has pulled out all the stops for a big soaring track that more closely resembles the kind of elegant soul pop that London Grammar have grown huge with.

9. Dustin Tebbutt – ‘Bones’

Might be uncomfortably close to Bon Iver for many but I’m digging this.

10. Ratking featuring King Krule – ‘So Sick Stories’

XL’s NYC rappers and the raspy English kid team up on a Rawkus-sounding jam from Ratking’s new album out in a week.
