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. Niia – ‘Simple Life’

‘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.

3. Tirzah – ‘No Romance’

Wobby electronic pop from a London singer produced by Micachu on the Greco-Roman label.

4. SBTRKT – ‘Gamelana’

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.

5. Lone – ’2 Is 8′

Surprising hip-hop Bibio-style beats from the normally dance-oriented producer. From his new album for R&S, Reality Testing.

6. Sleaford Mods – ‘Tied Up in Nottz’

“It’s The Final Countdown by fucking Journey!” Nottingham Lo-fi English punk poetry.

7. Planet Parade – ‘Before & After’

Another quality free download track from the re-emerging Kildare duo.

8. SOAK – ‘The Mother We Share’ (Chvrches cover)

Just a lovely fresh take on the still ubiquitous track.

9.  Cornerboy Muzik – ‘Pull Up

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.
