The best tracks of the week

1. Run The Jewels – ‘Oh My Darling Don’t Cry’ El-P and Killer Mike tease their hefty hip-hop followup album RTJ2 with ‘Oh My Darling Don’t Cry’, a bass-booming track which rather than utilising vinyl cutups and effects features the voice artist Michael Winslow doing it for them. Even better? A Christmas Fucking Miracle. They…

Premiere: Listen to Cove’s new EP - Vespers

A couple of weeks ago, I premiered the video for ‘Love And Work’, the new song from Cove, “a shimmering digital falsetto-laden electronic rock track”.

On last year’s guest verse on SZA’s ‘Child’s Play’ he illuminated the track with Popeye references and a tightly structured flow that ends in a wistful singsong “But…

Made In Heights - ‘Ghosts’

Made In Heights are an American duo who impressed with their stonking wobbling tune ‘Murakami’ about nine months ago leading to over a million Soundcloud plays. It was a song that intentionally or not, replicated the deep bass of Haim’s ‘My Song 5′. Their new song seemingly takes percussive inspiration from my song of 2013…

Lapalux - ‘Movement I, II & III’

Releasing on the Brainfeeder label, his liquid music is a good fit for a roster that includes Daedelus, Samiyam and Thundercat. ‘Movement I, II & III’ is a three-part track which moves from hazed synths accompanied by blunted beats through jazzy soul…
