Right, then. How’s everybody holding up?
We’ve got plenty of stuff to get you through the Bank Holiday weekend, so let’s dive right in, shall we? Lovely. This week our Jukebox is full of brand new tracks, with releases from Pixx, The Orielles, Bleachers, Alt- J, Dagny, and Bad Sounds dropping over the past seven days. Not to mention Marika Hackman is in our playlist again this week, with yet another banger. Not that we’re complaining, mind. We’ll take as many Marika tunes as we can get, ta very much.
We also had videos from Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa, Maximo Park, Real Estate, Kamikaze Girls and Mø, as well as the first look at the new clip for ‘Ferris Wheel’ from Brighton newbies Thyla. Meanwhile The Gospel Youth announced details of their debut album, The Kills covered Rihanna, and both Lorde and Pumarosa appeared on the first ever all-female-led edition of Later...With Jools Holland. It’s a brave new world, eh? They got there in the end.
On top off all that, Tigers Jaw announced a tour, The Amazons are playing Barn on the Farm, and Glastonbury announced their West Holts line-up featuring Solange, Justice, and Dizzee Rascal. Festival season is truly upon us.
Check all that out in this week’s playlist.
Give all this a try
Nearly 15 years after forming, Foals have just released their most outward-looking record to date, heralding a new era of social accountability, visceral lyrics and a commitment to saving our dying planet. That's if Yannis doesn't do himself another mischief first…
Their debut album ‘The Witch’ was a critical darling, but with its arrival came news that changed everything for Pumarosa. Now back with a second album which rips up expectation; they’re a band reborn.
'The lads' gave their latest 'Notes on a Conditional Form' cut a first airing last night.
Matt Maltese on album number two, and embracing the ballad.
