It’s the end of an era, you lot. As the neon lights go down on the 1975’s ‘i like it when you sleep…’ at Latitude this weekend, we’ve got a little something in our eye. It’s also the beginning of a new chapter though, so we’ve kicked off our Jukebox this week with ‘By Your Side’ to celebrate. Nice that, innit?
We’ve got new tracks from Aluna George, Manchester Orchestra, Lana Del Rey, Suzi Wu, Bloxx, Arcade Fire, Nadine Shah, Thumpers, and Benjamin Gibbard in the mix, so there’s bangers for days. On the video front this week, King Nun did a live version of ‘Sponge’, Feist and Jarvis Cocker got into a dance-off under a freeway, and we also got clips from Baby in Vain, Algiers, Dutch Uncles, The Magic Gang, Sälen, and Alvvays. Plus, not only did SuperGlu put out a video for ‘Welcome Home’ this week, they announced a show for us at Dork Live as well. Busy, busy.
Just to round things off, we’ve had live announcements from Mr Jukes, Queens of the Stone Age, and Lucy Rose, plus a full on #Jetrospective tour from Mystery Jets.
Check that all out in this week’s playlist below.
