BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE FORTNIGHT 24/07/2021: Lone, BADBADNOTGOOD, WILLOW and more…

YOU FORGOT TO DO A TRACK ROUNDUP LAST WEEK! Yes, yes, I know. I’ve decided to make up for it with this special edition extravaganza post – instead of just featuring six tracks from the last week, I’ll be featuring ten tracks from the last two weeks. I was going to go for twelve tracks but I didn’t have the time. This week’s lineup includes Lone, BADBADNOTGOOD, WILLOW, Georgie Gordon, Sam Florian, MACY, SILT, Ace Caped Crusader, underscores and Lorde…

Review of 'Daddy's Home' by St. Vincent


St. Vincent’s new serving of 70s psychedelic sleaze somehow manages to be excitingly fresh. In fact, it’s one of the most exciting albums I’ve heard this year.

BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 09/07/2021: Lazarus Kane, Sam Mehran, Vince Staples and more...

Lazarus Kane delivers some nutty New Wave. Sam Mehran’s two new posthumous singles are bangers. Vince Staples serves up a moody single produced by Kenny Beats. Turnstile provide wild riffs and an anthemic chorus. And Vilde releases some hazy lo-fi synthpop.

Review of ‘Planet Her’ by Doja Cat

BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 02/07/2021: WILLOW, Muscle Vest, Nerves and more...

Turn the footy off, take a seat on your Ikea Pride-themed couch, lock your doors (Bill Cosby is on the loose!) and get your headphones on – it’s time for the best and worst new tracks from this wild week. There are some awesome new rock tracks from Nerves, Muscle Vest and WILLOW (that’s Will Smith’s daughter. Yes, she’s now making rock music). Graver Ekow meanwhile return with an enjoyably loopy hip hop single and Snoh Aalegra delivers some super-smooth Sade-style pop.

BEST AND WORST NEW TRACKS OF THE WEEK 25/06/2021: Mick Jenkins, Isaiah Rashad, WOOZE and more…

Hip hop seems to finally be picking up this year – the new Mick Jenkins and Isaiah Rashad singles are fantastic! On the rock scene, Wooze are the new weird band to watch. Meanwhile, Gabrielle Sey and Dexter Dine deliver some experimental genre-meddling gems.
