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
‘Simple Life’, is as bare as they come, a piano-lead striking ballad with Niia’s jazz vocals yearning for something else as she “makes her lovers used the back door when they leave.” It’s an effective showcase of a new talent years in the making.
2. Todd Terje – ‘Oh Joy’
Probably the only banger we hadn’t heard from his debut and album of the week, It’s Album Time.
Wobby electronic pop from a London singer produced by Micachu on the Greco-Roman label.
The Transitions EP has been out a few weeks and this song first appeared in 2012 but this came on my headphones yesterday and took me by surprise.
Surprising hip-hop Bibio-style beats from the normally dance-oriented producer. From his new album for R&S, Reality Testing.
“It’s The Final Countdown by fucking Journey!” Nottingham Lo-fi English punk poetry.
Another quality free download track from the re-emerging Kildare duo.
Just a lovely fresh take on the still ubiquitous track.
Irish-rap beats from a Cork producer as used by Young Thug, Bun B and Fat Trel.
10. Halsey – ‘Ghost’
Speaking of the Glasgow band, this is some Chvrches’ style electro-pop from a New Jersey singer.
