Tracks of the Week playlist
Top quality rolling deep synth electronica from English/Iranian polymath TĀLĀ from her The Duchess EP.
2. Sylvan Esso – ‘Play It Right’
Two members from Mountain Man and Megafun team up on this new project. You might have heard ‘Coffee’ already, this is even better.
Funky pop solo single from the co-writer and vocalist of tracks from Rudimental to Little Mix to Gorgon City to Duke Dumont and A*M*E.
Tropical percussive R&B from the Oxford band’s new album Zaba.
A grimey dirty stringed-house collaboration on a new Jiaolong 12″ release.
My favourite of the three new Four Tet/Percussion tracks released this week, probably cos it’s a mix of his melodic and dance side.
7. Costello, Captain Moonlight, Linco, Reece, and Temper-Mental MissElayneous – ‘The Art Of The Clash’
Kilkenny’s Captain Moonlight teamed up with some of Dublin’s finest rappers for a song abut hurling and everything sounds well, better than a song about hurling and hip-hop should be. Great production by DJackulate and Danz.
8. Hundred Waters – ‘Xtalk’
Beautiful twinkling instrumentation and arrangement from the Waters’ second album The Moon Rang Like A Bell due on May 27th.
New single from Longford producer Jerome McCormick aka Imploded View. ‘Withering Lights’ has a hypnotic groove that reminds me of the work of Fort Romeau. he plays Phase One this weekend.
A divisive new single which sounds a bit like a Whitesnake ballad. Admirable.
