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. Little Dragon – ‘Paris’

Another brilliant single from Nabuma Rubberband. Cannot wait.

2. Ratking – ‘Canal’

A highlight from my album of the week.

3. The Derevolutions – ‘Now You Know My Name’

A sweet whistle-hook bright indie jam from the Boston band The Derevolutions. The band are Brett Boucher + Ana Karina

4. Kelis – ‘Runnin’ (Machinedrum Remix)

Machinedrum has stepped up and turned in a beguiling remix of Food album slow cut ‘Runnin’.

5. Ben Khan – Savage

Really getting into Mr Khan now. It’s like Jai Paul if he released records. This is from his forthcoming 1992 EP.

6. I Have A Tribe – ‘Yellow Raincoats’

Patrick O’Laoghaire was playing with Slow Skies a year ago. Now he’s supported Anna Calvi on a European Tour and releases a debut EP on Faction Records next month with two gigs in Dublin’s Chancery Lane Theatre.

7. TĀLĀ – ‘The Duchess’

The debut track from an London/Iranian musician cultivates an aesthetic that references her ancestry through deep-low end, bright synth melodies, vocal cutups and nuanced percussion. TĀLĀ is the sole composer, producer and singer.

8. Taylor McFerrin – ‘The Antidote’ (feat. Nai Palm)

Son of Bobby ‘Don’t Worry Be Happy’ McFerrin has an album coming on Brainfeeder in June. RIYL: Fly Lo. Duh.

9.  Ryan Vail – ‘Grow’

A sombre elegy from the Derry duo, their first in a year.

10. Tune-Yards – ‘Wait For A Minute’

A slow R&B-style cut from Tune-Yards’ new album.
